What is Dwayne Johnson net worth? It’s a question fans want to know! The Rock was born on May 2, 1972, in Hayward, California. Much like Stephen Curry, Dwayne Johnson came from a sports family. His grandfather was a professional wrestler, Peter “High Chief” Fanene Maivia and his father was Rocky Johnson. Needless to say, The Rock was bred for wrestling.
Interestingly, he went against the grain and had a passion for football. That led to him playing for the University of Miami. While his size and talent made him a great prospect, he was slowed down by injuries and gave up on his football dreams.
That’s when Dwayne Johnson became a wrestler. He began training for the sport in 1995 and by 1996, he secured a contract with the WWE. Success inside the ring was instant for Johnson, and he quickly gained a huge following.
Known professionally as ‘The Rock’, he won his first championship title in 1998 and became one of the most popular wrestlers in history. His rivalry with Stone Cold Steve Austin is still considered to be one of the great rivalries in WWE history. You can still go on YouTube and watch clips from their more memorable confrontations.
Throughout his wrestling career, Johnson won 17 WWF/WWE titles and was considered to be one of the greatest characters the sport has ever seen. Outside of the ring, Johnson developed his acting career.
In 2002, Dwayne Johnson made headlines when he grabbed the leading role in The Scorpion King. He then starred in Be Cool in 2005, The Game Plan in 2007, and joined the Fast & Furious franchise in 2013. Needless to say, Dwayne Johnson’s net worth was exploding by this time.
He’s now one of the highest-paid actors in the world, starring in huge blockbuster films like Furious Seven, Moana, and most recently Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. He’s also the producer/star of the hit HBO show ‘Ballers’ which just received an order for a fifth season. In 2016, Johnson was named by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world.
As you might imagine, Johnson is an extremely wealthy dude. His net worth is at $280 million and he should hit the $300 million mark by the end of 2019. Between June 2017 and June 2018, he made a ridiculous $125 million. THAT’S $125 MILLION IN ONE YEAR! If you weren’t understanding.
