About Dwayne Johnson
As for the day, Dwayne Johnson net worth amounts to $125 million dollars, making him one of the richest men in the business of entertainment. This name does not ring a bell to you? Well what about The Rock? Yes, both names refer to the same professional wrestler, ten times world champion, eight times WWE-F Champion and twice WCW/World Championship.
Dwayne has been great at sports ever since he was a little child. At first he played football, which, as the star has later revealed, gave him a platform to get out his aggression. After winning a national championship with the 1991 Miami Hurricanes football team and playing in the Canadian Football League, he turned to the profession that eventually boosted Dwayne Johnson net worth to the sum north of $100 million – he became a professional wrestler. But what I would like to highlight in this article, is the idea that it was , not only his wrestling skills that eventually increased Dwayne Johnson net worth to $125 million. It was also The Rock‘s charming personality, innate need to entertain people and dedication for the audience. And here come some quotes to support this argument.
For starters, the wrestler has declared: „I didn’t have to win, and winning wasn’t important to me. Being world champion wasn’t important to me” and added “What was important to me was entertaining the audience, and whether that meant winning, losing, singing, or whatever it was on the live show we were doing every week, which was awesome, I was game for it.“ Moreover, Dwayne has famously explained that he has always looked at wrestling in his show as a standup comedy: there was an audience of 25 people watching him live and his goal was to win them over. In order to do that, he did not have to be „the loudest or craziest“, just „the most entertaining“. And it is not only that Johnson has always been willing to do anything to keep his audience entertained while he was the ring. He is quick to come up with a simple, yet relatable and good joke whenever facing a camera. For example, he is quoted saying: „Every once in a while I get the highly inappropriate proposal which is like, ‘Wow, Really! You don’t even know me and I don’t know you at all, and you want that to happen? Tonight? Ok, I get off work at 7.30.’
What you should also know about Dwayne is that in addition to wrestling he has done some acting. For example, he has appeared on The Rundown, Walking Tall, Gridiron Gang, Get Smart, Race to Witch Mountain, Tooth Fairy, The Other Guys, Faster and Fast & Furious 6. These and other movies are responsible for a good part of the current Dwayne Johnson net worth.
