The Rock Net Worth

The Rock Net Worth: The movie star and WWE Champion The Rock is worth $75 million. He was born Dwayne Douglas Johnson in 1972 in Hayward, California. His wealth comes from over a decade of professional wrestling as well as a lucrative acting career. He was paid $5.5 million for his first starring movie role: The Scorpion King. This was a world record for the most money ever paid to a brand new film star.

Before Dwayne was the Rock: The Rock was tall and powerful before ever becoming a professional wrestler. He played college football at the University of Miami in its 1991 Championship year. After never making it to the NFL, he tried a brief stint for the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League. The CFL cut him 8 weeks into his first season. Undiscouraged, The Rock jumped into professional wrestling. In the WWF, Dwayne Johnson would truly find his home. He took on the ring name Rocky Maivia, later The Rock, and became one of the best pro wrestlers ever.

Wrestling and Film Career: The Rock is a 17 time WWE Champion and considered one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time. He holds 10 World Heavyweight titles with 8 from the WWF/WWE and 2 from the WCW. In addition to starring in The Scorpion King, he has held a number of supporting roles: Walking Tall, Gridiron Gang, The Other Guys, Faster, Fast Five, Fast & Furious 6, and numerous others. The Rock hosted Saturday Night Live (SNL) in 2000 and has also made several guest appearances as his hulk-like character “The Rock Obama.”
