As per CelebrityNetWorth, there are some actors who have a much higher net worth than Dwayne Johnson.

Reportedly, The Rock has an approximate net worth of $320 Million.

He gathered this net worth through movies and TV appearances, and, of course, WWE. It’s important to understand that he came from nothing and is a self-made man. Johnson had to be good with his finances and investments, otherwise, it’s easy to let money flow during the first couple of years.
