Since you've been viewing this page, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has earned

According to sources in January 2024, Dwayne Johnson agreed a deal worth $30 million to acquire an equity stake in 'The Rock' nickname. The agreement also revealed that The Rock will join the board of TKO Group, the sports and entertainment company that own WWE and UFC.

From wrestling stardom, The Rock has become a renowned actor. Few people are as instantly recognisable. He was even named among the 100 Most Recognisable People in the World by TIME in 2019. 

Despite being known all over the world, there’s still plenty you might not know about The Rock. Let’s run through some key information about the former Miami Hurricane… 

How Much Is The Rock Worth?

Estimations of The Rock’s net worth vary considerably. Some outlets claim The Rock has a total net worth in the $800 million region, while others predict it’s closer to $200 million.

Even in the high-paying world of professional wrestling, The Rock is super wealthy.

His career as an actor and general celebrity has seen him earn up to $20 million per film, and that’s before we even get to his countless endorsements.

Exact figures for anyone’s net worth are often hard to come by. As famous as Johnson is, many of his financial dealings are not going to be public knowledge.

Regardless, it’s clear he’s in a very comfortable position. 

How Old Is Dwayne Johnson?

Born in May 1972, The Rock is 51 years old at the time of writing. Although he spent his early years in California, Johnson briefly lived in New Zealand with his family. He played rugby during his time in New Zealand. 

His father was a professional wrestler, and his mother is the adopted daughter of a former professional wrestler. Wrestling was in the blood for Johnson. 

After returning to the US, Johnson moved around, living in Hawaii and North Carolina. He found himself in trouble frequently in his late teens.

Interest in sport, including football and wrestling, helped to get Johnson on track, and ultimately led him into the career that has made him a world-renowned star. 

They might not be blood related, but The Rock and Roman Reigns are second cousins if you acknowledge the ‘blood oath’ that their two grandfathers took part it.

WrestleMania on 6th April 2024 sees Roman Reigns and The Rock form a tag team to take on Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins.

Johnson has accepted Reigns as his ‘Tribal Chief’ – the fight came about after Rhodes proposed a one-on-one fight with The Rock, who countered with this tag team bout. 

If Reigns and The Rock win on Saturday, their fight on Sunday will be contested under ‘Bloodline Rules’. Look out for The Rock and Roman Reigns to be hitting the headlines whatever the outcome!

What Films Has The Rock Been In?

Dwayne Johnson’s films have grossed over $12 million worldwide. His first movie roles came just after the turn of the century.

He has won several awards for his acting throughout his career, and his show Ballers was one of the most popular comedies for the 2010s.

The Rock Wrestlemania Record

WrestleMania 40 will see The Rock wrestle in a WWE match for the first time in eight years. Johnson has competed in 11 WrestleMania events previously, winning six and losing five times.

He debuted at WrestleMania in the 1990s, defeating The Sultan to win the Intercontinental Championship. In the following year, he retained the same title and begun his journey to becoming one of the most famous wrestlers in WWE history.

While there is massive fan excitement about The Rock’s return to WrestleMania, the change of plans did take some people by surprise.

Triple H, WWE’s Chief Content Officer, said, “Now it’s a different time, and the way I do things is slightly different.

“My career, I learned from being here, but there were things along the way that I always thought I would do differently. In this time now, I get to make those calls and with a large team of people.

“Whether people will want to believe it or not, I think we were sort of looking at this as here’s where we’re going to go to get this started and it has the opportunity of going this way or that way.”
