Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Has a Net Worth of $124 Million, But There’s Something You Don’t Know about His Fortune
One of the most successful wrestlers turned actors is Dwayne Johnson, best known as The Rock — he wasn’t just a hit with the audience in the world of the sport from 1996 to 2004 but he also proved to be an effective actor, dealing with multiple genres and not just the typical action that the public has probably expected.
The man’s charisma obviously made its way out of the ring and onto the big screens, since then, his efforts didn’t go unnoticed. In fact, he is now one of the highest-paid actors, earning $65 million in 2017 and almost doubling his net worth to $124 million last year.
From a Wrestler to an Actor
For sure you wondered what’s the secret of the 47-year-old to earning that amount in just a span of a year. Fret not, here we lay down how he earns his moolah. Fans of the hunk would know that their idol started as a wrestler – in fact, he was credited as one of the top box office draws in the World Wrestling Entertainment’s history. Back then, he already had this warm, friendly vibe and undeniable charm despite throwing men onto the ring, clear as day he was destined to land TV and movie roles.
And he did! In the early 2000s, The Rock was able to score “The Scorpion King” and “The Mummy Returns,” just as his wrestling career started waning down. However, his next films would become the real deals. “San Andreas,” “Baywatch,” “Moana,” “Rampage,” and “Jumanji: Welcome to The Jungles” are just some of his notable works. Up in his sleeves are the Disney film “Jungle Cruise” and an HBO series “Ballers.”
Arguably his most remarkable was the “Fast and Furious” franchise and since he joined the installment, his character’s story arc remained one of the most awaited among the bunch. In fact, a spin-off, “Hobbes and Shaw,” that will focus on his role will be seeing light soon.
With loads of money on his bank account, it’s only logical to invest. The Rock and his ex-wife, Dany Garcia, put up Seven Bucks Production in 2012, or five years after they divorced.
The company is what brought us some of the man’s biggest pictures and whose upcoming films are “Shazam” and “Big Trouble in Little China.” What’s up with the name? Apparently, it stemmed from the $7 left of his money after his short football career ended.
The Rock also collaborated with fitness brand Under Armour, where he launched his own DJ Inspired collection, which was nothing short of successful. After two years, his sneakers line that cost $130 per pair would become a hit – within 30 minutes, everything was sold out!
The partnership was obvious from the get-go, the brand simply tapped on a man who is so loved and at the same time athletic, add to that the 140-million followers he has on Instagram, which meant he has a wide reach.
