What is The Rock Dwayne Johnson Net Worth?
Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, is an American actor, former professional wrestler, and entrepreneur who has a net worth of $800 million. That net worth includes what we believe is The Rock’s 30-40% stake in Teremana Tequila and a current $2 billion conservative estimate valuation of the brand. In theory, The Rock could make over $1 billion from the tequila company.
That would be more than he has ever made in his entire entertainment career. Outside of tequila, The Rock is one of the highest-paid entertainers on the planet. In a typical year he earns at least $100 million from his various film and endorsement endeavors. More details on The Rock’s earnings, assets, investments and real estate later in this article.
The Rock was born Dwayne Johnson on May 2, 1972, in Hayward, California. Dwayne’s father is a former professional wrestler named Rocky Johnson. The family briefly lived in New Zealand before settling in Hamden, Connecticut for a period. They moved to Honolulu, Hawaii followed by Nashville, Tennessee when Dwayne was in high school.
A promising athlete in high school, he received many colleges offers to play football. He ultimately chose the University of Miami, which offered a full scholarship. In 1991 he was a member of the Hurricane team that won the national championship. After suffering several injuries he lost his place on the team to future NFL star Warren Sapp.
Johnson later played for the Calgary Stampeders in the Canadian Football League but was cut early into his first season. At this point, he decided to follow in the footsteps of his father and grandfather, who were both professional wrestlers.
Johnson made his WWF debut as Rocky Maivia, a heroic character, combining the ring names of his father and grandfather. In 1997 Johnson turned to a villain character in the ring, adopting the name The Rock, a charismatic character that audiences warmed to readily.
Johnson made his name as a wrestler in World Wrestling Entertainment from 1996 to 2004. He was a nine-time world heavyweight champion for the WWE. In 2000 Johnson hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time, with guest appearances made by fellow wrestlers The Big Show, Triple H, and Mick Foley.
The Rock Net Worth and Wealth Milestones
The Rock was added to Celebrity Net Worth in December 2009 with a net worth of $30 million. Within a year and a half, his net worth had crossed $50 million for the first time. In September 2012, Celebrity Net Worth named The Rock the richest wrestler in the world with a net worth of $75 million. By 2015, thanks to some incredibly savvy business movies his net worth topped $160 million.
Thanks largely to his stunning $125 million earnings in the previous year, The Rock’s net worth in 2018 stood at $280 million. Between June 2018 and June 2019, he earned $90 million. That was enough to bring his net worth to $320 million.
He founded the Dwayne Johnson Foundation in 2006. The charity works with terminally ill children. In 2007 he donated $1 million to the University of Miami to support the renovation of the school’s football facility.
That gift is the largest donation ever given to the University of Miami by a former student. The team’s locker room is now named in his honor. He has worked with the Make-A-Wish Foundation on several occasions.
In November 2019, Dwayne paid $9.5 million cash for a 46-acre equestrian estate in Powder Springs, Georgia. The estate features a 15,000 square-foot home with eight bedrooms and six bathrooms. For some reason, Dwayne listed this property for sale just 14 months after the purchase, for $7.5 million, a potential $2 million loss.
He previously owned a home near Fort Lauderdale. He sold this home in 2019 for $4.5 million.
In April 2021 it was revealed that The Rock had paid $28.7 million for Paul Reiser’s Beverly Park mansion.
