From the football field to the wrestling ring to the big screen, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has become very successful in just about everything he does.
Starting off as a football player, he attended the University of Miami and played for the Hurricanes as defensive tackle. Unfortunately, an injury stopped him from pursuing a football dream. However, a change in his career path made him into one of the most famous people in the world.
He started wrestling in 1995, joining the what was then called WWF. Audiences didn’t initially welcome him with a warm embrace, but then things started to change and became known as “The People’s Champ.”
He eventually left wrestling and started pursuing an acting career, but he does go back to wrestling once in a while. One of his most famous comebacks was the rivalry with famous wrestler John Cena.
Johnson, of course, became very famous in the movie business as well, becoming the highest-paid actor in 2013.
