Overwatch 2 Mauga References The Rock

Overwatch 2 player points out cosmetic item refers to actor and professional wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.


  • Overwatch 2 begins season 8 with the introduction of a new tank character, ‘Mauga,’ and an exclusive cosmetic spray item reminiscent of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s iconic eyebrows.
  • With a subtle reference to The Rock in Mauga’s spray, a future Overwatch 2 update may include a cosmetic item inspired by The Rock.

Mauga’s spray for Overwatch 2 references actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and his eyebrows. The Rock has been raising his iconic eyebrows since the 1990s, and now Overwatch 2 celebrates him with a unique tribute.

Overwatch 2 Season 8 was released on Dec. 5 and with it came several tweaks to the game. Season 8 introduced a PvE mode called Battle of the Beasts, soft and hard weapon skins, and more. Like previous seasons, Season 8 also introduced a new character to Heroes of the Storm: Mauga. Introduced at BlizzCon 2023, Mauga is a new tank character with two mini-weapons that do a lot of damage. Mauga has a striking appearance with the raised eyebrows of The Rock.
