After Appearing On Abbott Elementary Season 2, Philadelphia Flyers Mascot Gritty Threw Some Hilarious Shade At Dwayne Johnson


Abbott Elementary’s Season 2 premiere was filled with side hustles, personal issues, and surprises. One surprise came in the form of extremely popular Philadelphia Flyers mascot Gritty making their acting debut. While the teacher-centric comedy is based in the City of Brotherly Love, the beloved NHL mascot’s appearance came as a surprise to viewers. With lots of attention on Gritty following the episode, the mascot provided a rare interview where they threw some hilarious shade at Dwayne Johnson.

Gritty’s witty quip came in a rare interview they gave to Variety after their Abbott Elementary cameo. While the beloved mascot was all goofiness and excitement on and off screen, it seemed like they weren’t here for actors who complain about playing themselves. Gritty was relieved ABC asked them to play themselves, rather than have an actor like The Rock try to play the Philly icon, explaining: 

Some, less experienced actors, have described the challenges of playing yourself on camera. I can’t relate. Truly, I found it refreshing that Hollywood didn’t try to get some C-lister like Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson to play me at a discount. I stuck to the script but of course added some of my Gritty charm we all know and love.
