Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson: Net Worth, Salary, & Endorsements

Dwayne Johnson, better known by his in-ring name The Rock, is perhaps the most recognized wrestler of all time. That’s largely because he’s also one of the biggest movie stars in the world.

Dwayne Johnson is a third-generation professional wrestler with his father Rocky Johnson and grandfather High Chief Peter Maivia also being parts of the business. However, wrestling was not always his passion. Dwayne was also a highly prolific footballer in his teenage years.

He studies at the University Of Miami on a full scholarship where he played defensive tackle for the college football team. After this, he joined the Canadian Football league as a part of the Calgary Stampeders. However, he was dropped two months into the season.

That was when he decided to pursue professional wrestling which would change both his life and the industry forever. Unfortunately for him, he had a horrible start to his career. He debuted at the 1996 Survivor Series with a corny babyface character called Rocky Maivia. However, the US at this time was getting anti-authority and professional wrestling getting edgier. That’s why Dwayne’s character was heavily rejected by the fans.

This led him to dig into his arsenal and create the best wrestling character of all time. He turned heel and his new character was called The Rock. In a swift departure from his earlier persona, The Rock was a no-nonsense brash character who revolutionized the art of cutting promos.

The Artituda era was in full swing, which meant he had full independence on the mic and he didn’t shy away from getting edgy when needed. His rise would coincide with the rise of another legend – Stone Cold Steve Austin. Their epic rivalry would become a key factor in getting WWE the win over WCW in the Monday Night Wars on prime time television.

The Rock became the face of the WWE, and his catchphrases became the stuff of legend. His rising popularity would soon attract Hollywood. Fans still miss the most electrifying wrestling superstar on TV.
