From Gridiron to the Squared Circle: The Rock’s early career and initial breakthrough

Born on May 2, 1972, in Hayward, California, Dwayne was always into wrestling, thanks to his grandfather, Peter Maivia, and dad Rocky Johnson, who were legendary wrestlers in their days. But teen Dwayne was a football star first, playing for the University of Miami’s 1991 NCAA Championship football team, before graduating with a Bachelor of General Studies degree in 1995.

But fate had other plans for the (future) Rock when Dwayne’s football career took a hit, and he sustained several injuries while playing in the Canadian Football League.

It turns out those injuries were a blessing in disguise. Enter: wrestling. In 1996, Dwayne Johnson made his debut in the World Wrestling Federation (now known as the WWE) and quickly won himself the WWF Intercontinental title. He initially used the wrestling moniker of Rocky Maivia as a tribute to his dad and grandfather’s ring names. But like many things, Johnson needed to make his own name in the sport, and he rebranded himself as ‘The Rock’. And a legend was born. By 1998, The Rock had well-known wrestling rivalries that ultimately won him his first of many world championship titles.

But it wasn’t just his wrestling skills that endeared him to wrestling fans — it was also his magnetic personality. And he quickly put that to use when he set his sights on Hollywood, making his debut with the 2001 film “The Mummy Returns”, making him the most successful wrestler in Tinseltown. He took Hollywood by storm, landing more roles in bigger movies, and eventually making the switch from wrestling to full-time acting in 2004.

Smashing Box Office Records: The Rock’s earnings in Hollywood

It was in 2018 when Johnson’s bank balance skyrocketed. He made a jaw-dropping $124 million in just that year alone! That paycheck is also the biggest amount in one year that Forbes has ever recorded for an actor.

Johnson kept that money train chugging along in 2019, when he cashed in $89.4 million, thanks in part to hit movies like “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” and “Hobbs and Shaw”. Even in 2020, when the rest of us were all stuck inside binge-watching “Tiger King”, the Rock managed to earn a staggering $87.5 million while starring in “Ballers”, hosting “The Titan Games” on NBC, and juggling a bunch of other projects, including narrating, creating, and producing the comedy show “Young Rock”.

By the time 2021 came along, the Rock hadn’t even thought about slowing down. He appeared in “Jungle Cruise”, “Red Notice”, “Free Guy”, and “Black Adam”. In other words, he’s using all his charisma and talent to turn everything he touches into gold.

Powerhouse Beyond Hollywood: The Rock’s phenomenal success

The Rock isn’t just about acting and wrestling these days, though. His muscle game is strong (literally) but his business game may just be stronger.

His most recent profitable project is Teremana Tequila, his own alcohol brand, which was released to the world in 2020. It was an immediate success, selling a million cases within a year and becoming one of the top tequila brands in the U.S. (The pandemic surely helped…)

And then, of course, there’s the money coming in as the Rock promotes himself with fitness fashion brand Under Armour. No wonder his Project Rock fitness gear line is flying off the shelves — who wouldn’t want to work out if the Rock is your inspiration, right? In 2023, the Rock also announced that Zoa Energy Drink, his energy drink brand, has made over $100 million in retail sales.

The Rock also heads production company Seven Bucks Productions. Created with his business partner Dany Garcia, Johnson has been busy creating original material for TV, movies and even new tech, and it’s managed to make it rain about $4.6 billion at the box office, with “Black Adam”, “Jungle Cruise”, “Rampage”, and others part of its stable of films.

And the Rock has his fingers in many other industries — from ice cream to personal finance to the Rock Clock alarm clock app. Simply put, the Rock just seems to have a Midas touch. It’s also been made more than clear that Johnson’s “Don’t give up, work hard,” mantra isn’t just about leg day at the gym. It’s a lifestyle.

Lavish Lifestyle and Benevolence: The Rock’s notable possessions and philanthropic endeavors

Now, Mr. Fitness may not have been born into luxury, but he’s definitely living the high life these days. But there’s more to him than expensive purchases — the man’s got a heart as big as his biceps. Let’s start with the sweet possessions, though.

In 2021, the Rock bought a mansion in Beverly Park for a cool $27.8 million — the largest in the neighborhood. It covers 17,630 square feet with all the luxurious add-ons one could ever need: six bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, a pool, a spa, a tennis court, a private gym (of course), and even a secret access gate.

He lives life in the fast lane (literally). He has an enviable car collection. Among his rides are the Pagani Huayra, a Ferrari LaFerrari (a gift from Ferrari itself), a Rolls-Royce Wraith, Lamborghini Huracan and Aventador, and even a Ford GT. The man most definitely has a taste for adrenaline and luxury. And speaking of traveling, he also has his own private jet — a Gulfstream G650, one of the fastest, flashiest private jets available. And it costs a pricey $65 million.

But despite all his luxury, the Rock is all about spreading the privilege. He founded the Dwayne Johnson ROCK Foundation in 2006 for kids in less-fortunate situations, such as seriously ill or at-risk. And he does a lot more for other charities like the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Red Cross.

Beyond the Limelight: A peek into the Rock’s personal life

So, the Rock is known to be private, but every now and then, he gives us a sneak peek into his personal life. First and foremost, the Rock’s family have been in the wrestling ring for generations. As we mentioned above, both his grandfather Peter Maivia and his dad Rocky Johnson were big names in wrestling.

The Rock got married to his current business partner Dany Garcia in 1997, but they amicably divorced in 2008. Then, while filming “The Game Plan” in 2006, the Rock met Lauren Hashian, and they tied the knot in 2019. They’ve been happily married since.

His family includes three beautiful daughters. Simone, his eldest, is from his first marriage to Garcia; he and Lauren have two of their own, Jasmine and Tiana. He regularly shows his fatherly pride on Instagram, posting pics of him with the ladies in his life.

Just like many of us, the Rock has had some rough patches, too. He’s spoken publicly about battling depression, especially in the wake of his divorce. Being open about his struggles has made him even more of a hero to those who have had similar experiences.

Getting Real with Dwayne Johnson: A peek inside his rocky moments

In 2015, another famous wrestler, Hulk Hogan, got caught up in a scandal in which audio of him using racial slurs was leaked. The Rock, who is a friend of Hogan, made a statement expressing his disappointment with the wrestler’s comments. Hogan sued Gawker Media for $100 million for releasing the audio.

More recently, in 2022, Joe Rogan was put in the hot seat for racial slurs and anti-vax sentiments expressed on his podcast. The Rock had publicly backed Rogan in the past, but when the personality’s insensitive comments came to life, Johnson apologized for his previous support and emphasized the crucial role of self-reflection and learning in evolving as a better person.
