But just who is Dwayne Johnson? What is his net worth? Here’s all you need to know about who he is, his age, net worth, how he’s made his money, family, movies, and recent revelations about his struggle with depression.
Dwayne Johnson is an actor and professional wrestler who has appeared in a number of hit films over the years and has also been known as one of the most popular professional wrestlers in WWE history. Johnson was born in Hayward, California, on May 2, 1972. Wrestling was in Johnson’s blood from day one, with his father Rocky Johnson being a professional wrestler in both the National Wrestling Alliance and the WWE, while his grandfather, Peter Maivia, was also known as a professional wrestler from the famed Anoa’i family from Samoa. His grandmother, Lia Maivia, was also a professional wrestling promoter.
After briefly living in New Zealand, Johnson’s family returned to the United States, where he subsequently lived in Connecticut, Hawaii, and Pennsylvania. In his youth, Johnson played football and eventually played for the University of Miami, helping the team win the national championship in 1991, though he was later sidelined by an injury.
After graduating from the University of Miami in 1995, he joined the Canadian Football League’s Calgary Stampeders but was cut after just two months. Undeterred, Johnson soon expressed interest in partaking in the family’s tradition of professional wrestling. After being trained by his father, he later joined the WWE in 1996, going under the moniker of Rocky Maivia. Despite being presented as a likeable hero at first, the character proved largely unpopular with WWE audiences. Johnson subsequently changed his in-ring persona to a charismatic villain named The Rock, who immediately became a phenomenon with WWE audiences thanks to his electrifying performance in the ring and magnetic appeal.
At the height of his successful WWE career, Johnson expressed interest in acting and made his first feature film debut in 2001 in “The Mummy Returns” and later starred in “The Scorpion King” in 2002. He later departed from the WWE in 2004 to focus on acting, appearing in movies like “Gridiron Gang” in 2006 and “The Other Guys” in 2010, as well as becoming a regular cast member of the popular “The Fast and the Furious” movie franchise.
Johnson later returned to the WWE in 2011 but also continued with his successful acting career, appearing in more movies such as “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island” in 2012, “San Andreas” in 2015, and “Baywatch” and “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” in 2017. Over the course of his WWE career, Johnson has been known as one of the most successful and popular professional wrestlers of all time. He’s also become one of the most iconic and bankable Hollywood stars in recent years since launching his acting career.
