    Dwayne Johnson’s tale is no ordinary rags-to-riches story. Born to wrestler Rocky Johnson, young Dwayne's life was always on the move, living in 13 states by high school due to his father's career demands. His college years saw him tackling opponents at the University of Miami's football field. Yet, the wrestling ring called him, much to his father's reluctance.

    "We had the biggest fight between a father and a son over this. He said, ‘Look around. Look what I have after all these years and I want more for you,’” Johnson reminisced about his early wrestling days. But a mother's intervention turned the tide, and the world was soon introduced to "The Rock."

    From Wrestling to Worldwide Fame

    Johnson’s unexpected leap into the cinematic world came with "The Scorpion King" in 2001. “I always knew I wanted to do film… I wanted to make a long-term impact,” he mentioned in an interview. Since then, his filmography boasts hits like the Fast and Furious series, Moana, and Jumanji.

    Now, fans eagerly await his performance in "Black Adam," slated for an October 2022 release.

    Starting with a mere $2 million net worth in 2001, Johnson's meteoric rise to $800 million in 2022 showcases more than just his acting talent. His financial growth also reflects ventures outside Hollywood. His tequila brand, Teremana Tequila, launched in 2020, became an instant hit. "It took 113 distillations to get to this point. Everything is handcrafted, handmade,” he detailed passionately about his brand.

    And as for the buzzing rumors of a potential presidential run? Johnson's not ruling it out. “If the time comes where there is a good amount of people who want to see that happen, then I'm going to consider it," he hinted.
