Dwyane “The Rock” Johnson appeared on “ManningCast” during the NFC wild-card playoff game between the Los Angeles Rams and Arizona Cardinals Monday night.
“The Most Electrifying Man in Sports Entertainment” dazzled NFL fans with what lay behind him, rather than with what he did or said during the broadcast. Fans were amazed to see a Tyrannosaurus Rex skull sitting over his left shoulder.

Eli Manning asked Johnson about the skull.
“I got a T-Rex skull. It’s Stan. In fact, Stan was the most complete T. Rex skull ever found by a paleontologist, a young paleontologist, and his name was Stan. So this T. Rex- head was named after him, “Johnson said.
“Pretty cool and bad a ** not?”

The dinosaur in question was discovered over 30 years ago in South Dakota by a paleontologist named Stan Sacrison. It was fully excavated in 1992 and was housed at the Black Hills Institute of Geological Research, according to national geography.
That was until October 6, 2020, when auction house Christie’s sold the T-Rex for $ 31.8 million, the highest price ever paid for a fossil. The bidder was never named.
“It’s an astronomical price bordering on absurdity, based on my knowledge of the market,” paleontologist David Evans told the magazine at the time. “If that kind of money [were] invested properly, it could easily fund 15 permanent dinosaur research positions or about 80 full field expeditions a year forever. “
The appearance of the skull triggered a firestorm on social media.

The object in question appeared to be only the skull and not the rest of the fossil, which could indicate that it was only a copy that sat behind the pro wrestling legend.
