Dwayne Johnson will host a game of HQ on Wednesday with a prize pot of $300,000. That’s the largest amount of money the 12-question trivia game has offered up yet. The Rock will take on guest hosting duties as he continues the press tour for his upcoming film Rampage, which hits theaters on April 20th.

Johnson will be hosting the afternoon game. He’ll be joined by regular host Scott Rogowsky, according to People, so The Rock will have some backup if HQ runs into technical issues from the deluge of players. Now on Android, iPhone, and iPad, HQ still attracts millions of players each week, but this is certainly going to be a bit more popular than the typical 3PM game.

Rampage is loosely based on the 1980s Midway arcade game — to the extent that you can actually base something off of a video game which itself lacked any plot. It had big monsters annihilating cities and causing mass explosions and destruction, though. Sounds like Dwayne’s wheelhouse. But what kind of question will Hollywood’s biggest action star ask in round 12?
