The Rock’s newest movie character pays homage to Chiefs all-time great

Christian Okoye

Mega box office star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has a new movie coming out called Rampage, and in it, Johnson plays “Davis Okoye,” a quiet Nigerian primatologist who shares a special relationship with George, a silverback gorilla.

The part that may be relevant to Chiefs fans is the reasoning behind Johnson’s name choice.

Yes, the Okoye name in the film is in fact paying homage to former Chiefs running back Christian Okoye.

How cool is that?
