Find the net worth and his career of Dwayne Johnson aka “The Rock”
Dwayne Johnson’s net worth is estimated to be $190 million as of 2017, according to Celebrity Net Worth with earnings of standalone $64.5 million from 2016. Was your guess anywhere near this? But I am not a bit surprised given numbers of movies he has played in. His salary was $32 million alone from the movie, “The Fast Five”. Johnson will be seen in an upcoming movie, Baywatch with co-star Zac Efron.

Johnson was recently received the title of “World’s number 1 international box office star” twice in the year 2013 and again in 2015 based on his role in San Andreas and The Fast and Furious 7. The rock is also one of the highest paid actors according to Forbes. Apparently, incomes from his movies have a significant role in increasing the sum of his net worth.

But before becoming an actor, Johnson had also spent a considerable part of his life in wrestling. This is how he made his name, “The Rock”. His wrestling career also earned him a staggering $5 million as of 2013, according to Earnings and Financial data.
Johnson’s other assets include mansion in Beverly Hills, estimated value is almost $5 million. That must be one hell of a mansion. Earlier in 2016, he signed a contract with Under Armour for “Project Rock”, a signature workout clothing.

Johnson is also involved in several charities including his own Dwayne Johnson Rock Foundation. He had indeed donated $2 million to a University’s Newman Alumni Center for building a living room. Apart from this, he has also made numerous donations.
The journey of Dwayne Johnson from an average normal boy to one of the highest paid actor was made possible only due to his hard work and strong determination. He believes in hardworking and we now believe in that too.
Johnson first started his career as a wrestler in 1996 given his father was also a professional wrestler. It did not take long enough for him to achieve success. He fought under the name Rock Maivia and later The Rock.

Two years into wrestling and he had already won several championships. Some of the honourable championships were Heavyweight championships(10 times), WWF Intercontinental Championships(2 times) and World Tag Team Championships(5 times). By 2003 he was listed on the 76 rank among 500 best wrestlers. The Rock was also popular to his fan because of his strange but picky catchphrases.
"Can you smell what the Rock is cooking?"
Johnson then for some reasons decided to give film industry a try. He did appear in a music video of Wyclef Jean’s 2000 single, “It doesn’t matter”. May be few of you were aware that he had been a guest actor in Star Trek: Voyager. I obviously did not know that. But it was not until 2001, he came into notice, because of his debut in The Mummy Returns. This also got him listed in the Guinness World Records as “the highest paid actor in his first starring role”.

Now that Hollywood had a taste of him, it could not resist him. Johnson began to appear in movies, not only movies but he record breaking movies, one after another including the Fast Five in 2011, Fast and Furious 6 and 7 and San Andreas.
Johnson by 2013 had earned more than some of the popular actors and actresses. Forbes did not entitle him as the top grossing actor twice just like that.
He recently appeared in the final series of Fast and Furious 8, The Fate of the Furious which broke many records and earnings, crossing over $1 billion.
From a professional wrestler to the highest paid actor, Johnson was also given the title any man would have been proud of, the sexiest man alive by the People in 2016.
