Not only people but the actors are also hugely benefitting from this change. And when it comes to actor Dwayne ‘The Rock‘ Johnson, he has his fingers in all the pies. Despite his movies not being a major success at the box office, he’s still earning big bucks from Amazon and Netflix.

Johnson’s time in wrestling was filled with one memorable moment after another. His time at Hollywood has also been quite rewarding, to say the least. So much so that he has inspired a transition to acting from wrestling, with John Cena being a prime example.
