Not many former pro wrestlers manage to maintain their luxurious lifestyle years after retiring.

But, of course, not all wrestlers are Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

Charisma and Muscles: There are so many little pies Dwayne Johnson has his fingers in, and once combined, they create an impressive annual income for “The Rock”. The pro wrestler and Hollywood star is very savvy in capitalizing on his physique and charisma. He still has a few appearances in the World Wrestling Entertainment Ring, has published a book called “The Rock Says”, and continues to appear in movies.
He is a staple in the Fast & Furious franchise and chooses his roles carefully in family friendly movies, such as Tooth Fairy, The Other Guys and Journey 2: The Mysterious Islands. For the upcoming future, “The Rock” is confirmed to act in Journey 3: From the Earth to the Moon, Journey to the Center of the Earth 4 and the remake of Baywatch.
Wrestling Awards: “The Rock” is not just a showman, but an all-round wrestling champion in his rights. During his professional sports career, Dwayne Johnson was a WWF Intercontinental Champion twice, a WWF Tag Team Championship five times and a Royal Rumble winner (in 2000). In total, “The Rock” has 17 top-level titles under the belt and remains one of the most successful professionals in the wrestling hall of fame.
Advertising Deals: Dwayne Johnson had already appeared in a Mentos commercial, when he was approached by Ford to lend his charisma to their “The Specialists” video ad. In 2013, the pro wrestler appeared in the famous series of “Got Milk?” ads during the Superbowl Final. Recently, he signed a deal with Under Armor clothing line (which the actor has been wearing for years, being an unofficial spokesperson for the brand).
All these advertising deals add up to Dwayne Johnson net worth, estimated between $125 million and $150 million, according to various sources. “The Rock” still has a busy movie agenda, apart for the movies in post production, such as Central Intelligence, Shazam!, and Big Trouble in Little China. The actor is currently filming for Moana, a cartoon movies for which he gives voice to the character Maui.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is divorced and, at the age of 43, still has a word to say in the professional wrestling world.
