Adele admits to being a fan of Johnson since her time in WWE, which has been known for years. Johnson also admitted to being a “huge” admirer of Adele. The couple had previously tried to meet, but work disputes prevented it.

Johnson admitted that when he realized he could attend this year’s Grammys with his wife, singer-songwriter Lauren Hashian, he wanted to work with the show’s producers to create a surprise for Adele .

“We wanted to do something special for Adele,” Johnson told Variety, “I know she’s a big fan of mine and she’s said that publicly many times. But I have to tell you, I’m also a huge fan of hers: her music, her background, her candor and her candor when it comes to speaking. I’ve always admired that about her.

He added, “We were trying to come up with something fun and surprise her, and we’d been thinking all week. The key to a surprise like this is to keep it a surprise. The Grammys and I did all we could to do Adele, she was really surprised at the time, and she was.”

Speaking about meeting Adele, Johnson said: “It was a huge surprise and I got to chat with her and her boyfriend Rich Paul for a bit. And talk about the friendship the universe has given us: I go on stage, I open the Grammys envelope and it says ‘Adele’.

“That’s why I was able to say, ‘Come here, my best friend Adele! It was a very special night. And she is such a special, iconic, brilliant and inspiring artist who inspired a generation and will continue to inspire. inspire generations to come. . I love this woman. We had a great time tonight. I think the best thing about it is that she’s awesome, and I didn’t know her at all.

Later, in an Instagram post, Johnson said being able to announce Adele’s victory was a “beautiful full-loop moment.” The Hobbs & Shaw star’s comments come after Adele and compatriot Harry Styles scooped two major awards at the ceremony.
