The richest ever WWE superstar and one of Hollywood’s most successful celebrities, Dwayne Johnson or The Rock celebrates his birthday today as the 10-time World Champion turns 46 years old.
Johnson, who has a net worth of $220 Million, is one of the highest-paid Actors in Hollywood and one of the top Box Office draws. From his humble beginnings as the youngest WWF Intercontinental Champion as a third generation Superstar, The Rock shot to fame with his role in The Scorpion King (2002) after making his first feature film debut in The Mummy Returns (2001). Ever since that movie, The Rock would slowly take a turn to Hollywood thus making way for new talent in WWE and being among the first to dawn in the WWE-Hollywood relationship.
Johnson left WWE in 2004 to focus on his acting career and later returned to the company in 2011. Johnson also set a world record for the highest salary by an actor in his first lead role when he got paid $5.5 Million to do “The Scorpion King”.
From being one of the most era-defining stars during the most critical time in WWE’s history to becoming 8-time WWE Champion, The Rock is truly the most electrifying man in all of sports entertainment.
