He also opened up about the passing of his father, Rocky Johnson, who was also a professional wrestler, and congratulated the Queen on her "incredible life".

He said: "It has been one hell of a Thursday so far, certainly for my family, from the moment we woke up it has just been one of those days.

"I'm just swooping in really quickly to stop in and send my love, condolences, light, strength and mana [an impersonal supernatural power in Maori culture] to the Royal Family during this time, in the spirit of the passing of the Queen.

"I'm so sorry. I know the pain, like we all know the pain, and what a life. What an incredible life.

"I've never had the privilege and honour of meeting the Queen, but what a life.

"Seven decades, I think, of the longest running monarchy. What an impactful life.

"I've got to tell you – and not that this is any consolation in any way, I'm just sharing a perspective that I have – when I lost my old man two years ago, right before the pandemic hit us, my old man just dropped and passed away and I never had a chance to say goodbye to him. I regret that.

"But, the way I look at that it these days is that it informs us on how we should live moving forward, because in their spirit we have an opportunity to live, and live life greatly with passion and fervour and positive energy. And with all we've got.

"So, I'm sending a lot of love. Stay strong and now let's live as greatly as we can. And what a life!"
