However, the pro wrestler turned actor shocked the world today by fully endorsing Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for President and Vice President.

Johnson, a self-described Independent with centrist views, posted a video to his Twitter page and to his YouTube, where he said, "Now, this is something that I've certainly not done in the past, so I'm gonna go big".

In the video, Johnson said he has never publicly endorsed a president before, but felt the need to take action ahead of the USA presidential election on November 3.

In his Instagram post, Johnson explained exactly why he made a decision to finally endorse a presidential candidate. "You and I talked about that in the past and how important soul is", said Johnson, who was once the third-most backed person online to run for president in the 2020 election.

Johnson asked Biden and Harris what they would do to earn the respect of Americans if they were elected. We're not gonna be flawless, but take responsibility. Johnson ended the video by saying, "the most powerful way for us to make progress, to me, is through humanity, is through decency ... through equality, progress through kindness, 'cause kindness matters". "Being KIND & RESPECTFUL to one another will always matter". "You've led, in my opinion, with great compassion and heart and drive, but also soul", Johnson said.

Said Harris, "It's about trust...it's a reciprocal relationship". You give and receive trust.

"You can not have trust if you don't have truth", added Harris. "I mean, people are grieving the loss of life, the loss of jobs, the loss of certainty, the loss of normalcy, and to heal and get through this, we're going to have to be honest about what healing will require".

While Johnson has seemed mostly apolitical in the public eye, he has been outspoken about Trump's response to the civil unrest sparked by the police killing of George Floyd, sharing a lengthy video message in June.
