The Rock rocks Maple Leafs fans with new chant

The Maple Leafs didn’t change their goal song, but for a while at least they did change their team song.

Fans at Thursday night’s home opener were surprised when Dwayne Johnson, the former wrestler-turned-actor universally known as The Rock, walked through the tunnel wearing a Leafs sweater, ready to rock the crowd. crowd during a stoppage of play.

“What’s up in Toronto? We’re going to do this well. Here we go,” Johnson said before starting a “Let’s go Leafs” chant. Stepping away from the usual ‘Go Leafs Go’ chant was a bold move, but he pulled it off as the sold-out crowd followed his lead.

Perhaps The Rock is also the one who changed the team’s goal song, as fans called for a change to Hall and Oates’ « You Make My Dreams, » which the team has been using since 2018.
