INTRODUCTION:

“The Rock”, hailed as the highest paid actor this year by Forbes Magazine, literally started from the rock bottom with just $7 in his pocket. With the multiple blockbuster movies he’s starred in, Dwayne has $64.5 million from  June 2015 to June 2016, surpassing Jackie Chan who earned $61 million.

CAREER:

He came from a poor family and was determined to get his family back up from their previous situation. His father was a professional wrestler too and Johnson felt like  it was his true calling. So by 1996, he has signed up with World Wrestling Foundation and has been known as The Rock since.

The Rock has been listed as one of the all-time greatest professional wrestlers as well as one of the top box office draws in wrestling history. He was described as the WWE’s biggest star and probably held the greatest international appeal. He is the first wrestler to win the WWF/E Championship six times, and then seven times.

Dwayne has been successful with what he called his true calling, but what he might not have expected though is a career in Hollywood, and a very successful one at that too. Johnson broke into the mainstream with roles in the blockbuster action films The Mummy Returns in 2001 and The Scorpion King in 2002, the action comedy The Rundown in 2003 and the remake of Walking Tall in 2004. He also appeared in the fifth film of The Fast and the Furious film series, starred in the adventure sequel film Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, became known to reinvigorate film franchises after portraying Roadblock in G.I. Joe: Retaliation, and Luke Hobbs, in Fast & Furious 6. He starred in Hercules, as the title character and appeared again in Furious 7.
