Appearing on CNBC, The Rock commented on joining the Board.

"I'm excited and I'm always looking to grow. I like to say that I'm a builder of things and I enjoy building. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. With something like this, everything I do and everything I do touch, there 100% is a deeper meaning to it. Joining this board, I have been asked to join other boards in the past, joining this board is unique, different, and special. I'm sitting at a board that my grandfather and dad helped build and help building a company and growing it globally with a global footprint with a guy that I love and admire," The Rock said, referencing Ari Emanuel.
