Growing up, The Rock did not experience luxury and did not have the pleasure of owning a proper home. However, with his current status, he lives in a mansion in Beverly Park, Los Angeles.

How did Dwayne Johnson’s early life look like?

Dwayne Johnson spent his childhood in multiple places. Born in Hayward, he spent his life in New Zealand, Honolulu, Charlotte, Hamden, and Nashville. The Rock's father was a pro wrestler and was an inspiration to him. While growing up, Johnson faced a lot of hardships and struggles.

Quite often, he and his mother were thrown out of their houses for not paying the rent, or Johnson would also find himself in trouble with the law frequently. The former wrestler knows what struggle is, and having experienced every bit of it, he is blessed for the life he has right now.

He graduated from high school, enrolled on a full scholarship at The University of Miami, and aspired to be a professional player there. But life had other plans for him. After not getting drafted for the NFL, Johnson flew out to Canada to play in the Canadian League. Unfortunately, two months later, he was dropped. People might wonder if Johnson has served in the army, but he has not.

During this dark phase of his career, he traced back to his roots and joined the family legacy of pro wrestling. Soon, he was roped in by WWE, where he made his debut as Rocky Maivia, a character that failed to work well. What followed was a major heel turn, and 'The Rock', the name that set well with his identity, was born. There were years of entertainment, Championship wins, and massive pushes he received from Vince McMahon.

At this point, WWE was heading into the Attitude Era, a more rebellious stage. Johnson rose to his peak during this era and made a name for himself. Apart from his wrestling skills, he was also known for his promo abilities and revolutionized the art of cutting promos. The Attitude Era took The Rock to prominence, and it attracted Hollywood as well; like bees to honey. Soon, they offered him multiple projects, and in 2001, The Rock left WWE to make a career in the movies.

A look at the football career of Dwayne Johnson

When it comes to the NFL, Johnson did not experience a happy phase. During the early stage of his football career, The Brahma Bull was rejected during the NFL drafts and had to move to Canada to play football. Now he is in an entirely different league of his own.

While he does not own an NFL team yet, he is the owner of XFL. A direct competitor to the NFL, XFL has set up an R&D partnership with the NFL, to expand the sport of football.

All about the wrestling career of Dwayne Johnson

A failed football career motivated The Rock to pursue pro wrestling. After his initial babyface gimmick failed, he turned heel. Johnson's heel turn was a reviving moment in his career, and after that, he never had to look back. He reached new heights and tasted success with this new loud-mouthed, no-nonsense gimmick.

During this transition phase of his career, Pat Patterson, a father-like figure to Johnson, suggested him the name, 'The Rock'. It instantly clicked with him and has stayed with him forever since. WWE was going through a change during that point, and his gimmick, paired alongside another rising star, Stone Cold Steve Austin, took the company to new heights and also gave rise to a new rivalry.

Soon, The Rock started focusing on acting and left WWE permanently. His busy schedule came in the way of his wrestling career. It is not known how much he earned during his prime in the company. During his stint in WWE from 2011-2013, Dwayne Johnson took home $5 million on an annual basis. However, he is no longer signed to the company but can make sporadic appearances at big events.
