In the past, stuntmen were often relied on for most of the action scenes but these days the acting artists are often qualified for such scenes themselves. Although this might be interesting, it seems that this endangers the crew of the film in some cases. Dwayne Johnson, in an Instagram video, revealed that fellow wrestler Roman Reigns has great aiming skills. Nevertheless, finding this out on the sets of Hobbs and Shaw resulted in a painful situation for one of the film's camera operators.
Check out Dwayne Johnson's Instagram video below:

Hey, my cuz @romanreigns has great aim 🎯🤷🏽♂️😂 Our A-camera operator Lukasz Bielan🎥 is one of the best in Hollywood - and now we know he can take a wooden club to the skull and keep on rockin! We love ya brother Lukasz - you’re our champion and tougher than a $2 dollar steak. This will always be one of the funniest f*cking things I’ve ever seen 😂🤦🏽♂️ Despite the KO, Roman wrecks fools and completely DOMINATES in our movie. Very proud of him acting in his very first film. HOBBS & SHAW In theaters THIS FRIDAY 🌎
Revealed earlier in the trailer, Hobbs and Shaw will see the duo visit Dwayne Johnson aka Hobbs' family in Samoa for help against Idris Elba's Brixton. Hobbs' family is shown to be a culturally-rooted one who engages in a battle with sticks and clubs. In one of these scenes, Roman Reigns portrays The Rock's brother and fights alongside him with a club. Johnson revealed that the problem was that Reigns thought that the clubs were to be thrown. This is how a camera operator ended up being hit with a flying club in the face. In Johnson's video, Reigns stated that he has still not stopped apologizing the camera operator even though he brushed himself off and held no grudge against Reigns after the incident at all. Johnson added that all this was happening literally behind his back which was why he did not see it happening and only heard someone exclaim 'Oh my god!' very loudly. Notably, Hobbs and Shaw will be Reigns' debut into Hollywood.
