WWE News: The Rock becomes the highest paid actor in Hollywood
If ever a WWE Superstar found greener pastures after leaving the company, it would have to be The Rock. After leaving WWE for pursuing a career in Hollywood, The Rock has become one of the biggest stars the silver screen has ever seen.
Starting his acting career in 2001 with the Scorpion King The Rock has become a regular star in film series’ like The Fast and The Furious and G.I.Joe and now he has one more reason to call himself the top star of Hollywood.
The Rock has now officially become the highest paid Hollywood actor featuring 19th position in Forbes' list of top 100 highest-paid celebrities of 2016. According to Forbes The Rock, now better known by his real name Dwayne Johnson will be earning a whopping $64.5 million in 2016.
This makes him the highest paid Hollywood actor in the list. The list is been topped by Taylor Swift who will be earning $170 million this year. Still, It's quite an accomplishment for a wrestler turned actor whose first WWE gimmick was rejected harshly by all WWE fans.
It's notable here that after having a 9-year long career in wrestling, The Rock left WWE for chasing his Hollywood dream back in 2004.
