Johnson was born in Hayward, California, on May 2, 1972.  In college, he played football and showed promise of becoming a professional sportsman. However, he opted to pursue a career in professional wrestling, just like his father Rocky Johnson. He first started training as a wrestler in 1995 and made his WWF ring debut in 1996, using the name Rocky Maivia.

He was a hugely successful wrestler, winning many championships, but initially decided to retire from wrestling in 2009 to pursue other opportunities that had arisen. However, he decided to make a partial return to wrestling in 2011 and continues to work part-time as a professional wrestler to this day. He is widely considered one of the greatest wrestlers of all-time.

Although Johnson made a lot of money from his wrestling career, most of his personal fortune has been earned from his other careers, predominantly from his acting. He made his television debut in 1999 in an episode of ‘That ‘70s Show’. He then began acting in more television series.

His film debut came in 2001 when he had a role in ‘The Mummy Returns’ followed by a role in ‘The Scorpion King’. The latter was his first starring role and it was reported at the time that he was paid $5.5 million to appear in this movie. Johnson became associated with action roles because this is the genre of film in which he predominantly acted and his characters were often involved in action and stunt scenes.

He has had a recurring role in the ‘Fast & Furious’ series of films in which he portrays Luke Hobbs. Other movies in which Dwayne ‘Th Rock’ Johnson has starred include ‘Hercules’, ‘Central Intelligence’, ‘Baywatch’, and ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’. He has also taken on voice roles in films, including providing the voice for the demigod Maui in ‘Moana’.

Johnson has enjoyed extensive success in his acting career and the critical reception of his performances has been excellent. He has received multiple awards for his acting and was named as the top-paid actor of 2016. This has put him in huge demand and having already earned huge sums of money for his film roles, he is set to earn even more from future projects he already has underway.

He has a busy and profitable schedule ahead of him over the next two years. Just some of the films he has been linked with that are set for release in 2019 include the ninth installment of the ‘Fat & Furious’ series of films, the ‘Big Trouble in Little China’ remake, the film adaptation of ‘The Janson Detective’, and ‘Red Notice’. He is also working on an interpretation of ‘Doc Savage’ with Shane Black.

Beyond his wrestling and film careers, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has also worked on several other projects that have contributed to him achieving a net worth of $190 million. He released his autobiography ‘The Rock Says…’ in 2000. He co-wrote this with Joe Layden. The autobiography debuted at the top position in The New York Times Best Seller list. It continues to be successful and remained on the list for several weeks.

In business, he has partnered with Under Armour, a fitness apparel manufacturer, since 2016. His collaboration with this company is being run under the name ‘Project Rock’. Some of the products released by this project have included a gym bag, a T-shirt, and an alarm clock app.

A further venture in which Dwayne Johnson is involved is a YouTube channel called ‘The Rock’. He launched this with Lilly Singh in 2016. The first video he posted was an instant hit and he often features other celebrities in his posts. Each of these ventures has contributed to the fortune this celebrity has now amassed.

In his personal life, Johnson was married to Danny Garcia in 1997 and their daughter, Simone, was born in 2001. The couple divorced in 2007 but remain friends. Johnson then began dating Lauren Hashian shortly after his divorce. They have two daughters together and live in Southwest Ranches in Florida.
