If you can’t smell what The Rock is cooking it’s probably because it is way above your pay grade. Dwayne is what you would consider a serious baller in Hollywood. Homeboy’s net worth is estimated at an astounding $220M! He is without a doubt a current member of the A-list actor’s clubhouse. The former pro wrestler turned full time actor has no shortage of blockbuster hits under his belt.


From The Scorpion King to The Fast and the Furious franchise, Johnson has quickly become a name Hollywood can safely bet on.  Now let’s talk about one of the hottest HBO shows currently airing. Dwayne is cast on HBO’s hit show Ballers as Spencer Strasmore, a former superstar football player transitioning into a financial manager for current players in sun-splashed Miami. The show has that Entourage vibe which should come as no surprise since Mark Wahlberg is an executive producer.  If you like sports, hot women, fast paced action then you should tune in. 


So just how much cheese does Johnson make for his role on Ballers? Dwayne pulls in a reported $900,000 per episode!

Can someone say cut the check. His salary may just be a small drop in the bucket compared to his overall net-worth but if you ask us,  it’s one hell of a good payday for an episode’s worth of work.
