Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has become a very successful wrestler/actor and with that a result of making a very healthy income.
We first saw Johnson hit the limelight when joining, what was then called, the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) as a wrestler in 1996 after signing a contract. This would see him become 'the people's champion' winning every belt on offer including the Intercontinental, the WWF Championship and Royal Rumble.
Many wrestling fans to this day still remember his famous sayings including "If you smell, what the Rock is cooking" and let's not forget 'The people's eyebrow' where he would raise one eyebrow when standing in the centre of the ring. Whatever stints the Rock did, the fans sure loved it.
After many years of wrestling the best in the world, Johnson changed his work scene from fighting in the ring to being on set in Hollywood. A career move which proved to be a very good decision made by the great one. Not only did it help Johnson grow more fans around the world at premieres and on his social media channels but it sure helped grow his net worth even bigger.

One of Johnson's first film appearances was in 'The Mummy Returns' and 'The Scorpion King' which attracted many castings and directors to have him in their films. His biggest role is arguably playing Luke Hobbs in the 'Fast and Furious' franchise but has also played big parts in 'Baywatch', 'Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle' and 'San Andreas'.
Not a bad career so far for the 45-year-old and with the earnings of many millions of dollars, Johnson has taken up the opportunity to buy some very fancy suits and cars.

Let's take a look...
16 Pagani Huayra
No matter what the weather is, it doesn't stop Johnson from going out of the house to wear his fancy suit and drive around in his very pricy vehicles.
This car is the Pagani Huayra but it's a vehicle that has been reported on the website, Motorward, that the actor can't fit in the car. Surely that is just a waste of money if you can't fit in the driving seat?
Johnson is known for posting photos on his Instagram account of himself next to his collection of cars. A bit of a show off you could say but do you blame him? We would all probably do the same thing.

The Pagani Huayra is an Italian mid-engined sports car produced by Pagani. It is the succeeder of Pagani's Zonda that was in production from 1999 to 2017. The Pagani Huayra is priced at around $1 million - a price Johnson can easily afford.
15 Ballers Suit
Even though we are used to seeing Johnson on the big screen, he has also made a few appearances on the smaller screen. While he was still wresting in WWF/WWE, Johnson made cameo appearances on US TV shows including 'That 70's Show', 'Star Trek: Voyager', 'Hannah Montana' and hosting 'Saturday Night Live' on five occasions.
But his biggest role has so far been in the American comedy-drama series called 'Ballers' which first aired in 2015.
Johnson portrays the main character of the series, Spencer Strasmore, a retired American football player who must find a new career in financial management for other active NFL players.
The show can be seen on HBO in which the company is known for producing successful TV shows such as 'Game of Thrones', 'The Sopranos' and 'Westworld'.
'Ballers' was created by Stephen Levinson who is best known for being a producer on 'Boardwalk Empire', 'Deepwater Horizon' and 'Entourage'.
Wow! Is the Rock honestly that muscular? You would think the photo was edited in Photoshop. Oh and what a cool car that is placed behind him.
Car manufacturer Nissan have quite a range of cars for their customers to choose from but most would want themselves behind the wheel of a Nissan GT-R, that's if you can afford it anyway.
The Nissan GT-R first came onto the car scene in 2007 when it first went into production and still to this day it is a product Nissan like to work on and sell.
Even though it is a pricy car, the GT-R is not as expensive as you might think if you compare it to others such as a Ferrari and a Lamborghini. The GT-R is normally sold at around $82,000 which would be no problem for someone like the Rock to buy 10 times over.
13 G.I. Joe Suit
You could say the suit in this picture is along the colours of the outfits we see in the G.I. Joe movies.
'G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra' was released in 2009 but did not cast Johnson. This wasn't until the sequel/reboot 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' was out in 2013. The Rise of Cobra featured Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje who is an English actor best known for his work in 'Thor: The Dark World' and 'Suicide Squad'. The 2009 film also had former Doctor Who actor Christopher Eccleston who you may remember as an invisible character in the first series of 'Heroes'.
Johnson joined the G.I. Joe franchise when asked to portray the main character Marvin F. Hinton in Retaliation. This saw Johnson work alongside a very big cast. The cast included Bruce Willis, Channing Tatum and Ray Park, who played Darth Maul in 'Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace'.
But since the 2013 release of Retaliation, there has been no other additional G.I. Joe films added to the series.
12 McLaren 650S
The Rock has picked the right car colour for a sunny setting. The car pictured behind him is a McLaren 650S.
McLaren is a car manufacturer best known for it's work in Formula 1, the biggest motorsport racing series in the world. McLaren have their own team in F1 which has employed well known drivers such as Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button, Mika Hakkinen, Ayrton Senna and Fernando Alonso to race their cars on the best and challenging tracks around the world.
The McLaren 650S has been in production from 2014 to 2017 and were designed by Frank Stephenson and Robert Melville. McLaren only made 50 of the 650S cars so they are a very rare find. It is believed the 650S is worth just over $265,000.
One question we don't know the answer to about this McLaren car is can Johnson actually fit in the driving seat with this one?
11 San Andreas Suit
This suit is a 'hello world!' kind of outfit at the film premiere of 'San Andreas'. A baggy pair of grey patterned trousers to match Johnson's jacket. Let's not forget his white spotted tie.
'San Andreas' was released in 2015, not to be confused with the video game 'Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas' from 2004, and despite the efforts of Johnson portraying the main character, Chief Raymond 'Ray' Gaines, in the film it received a lot of mixed reviews from the media. But it did however make over $474 million from the budget of $110 million to make the movie.
Even though the film was set in San Andreas, America it was actually mostly filmed in Australia in Queensland - the second largest state down-under.
The film also casts actress Carla Gugino who is best known for playing Sally Jupiter in 'Watchmen' and also playing parts in other films such as 'Sin City' and 'Night at the Museum'.
10 Ferrari LaFerrari
When you think of any man's dream car, surely the first one that comes to mind is a Ferrari?
Ferrari is one of the biggest car manufacturers in the world if not the biggest on the globe. A company founded by Enzo Ferrari in 1939 and have since designed the most beautiful cars you can ever imagine.
As well as their work on cars for the roads they are also recognized for their team work in F1, their team is called Scuderia Ferrari. Their most successful driver is Michael Schumacher who claimed five consecutive Driver's Championships from 2000 to 2004.
The Ferrari pictured next to Johnson is the Ferrari LaFerrari. LaFerrari was in production in 2013 and shut up shop in 2016 in which one of the cars was auctioned off for $7 million making it the most valuable 21st century automobile ever sold at auction.
That's some car!
9 Central Intelligence Suit
Johnson and Kevin Hart (pictured right) have worked on a few different film sets over the last few years and have become quite a popular duo to the fans.
Both Johnson and Hart have a huge following in America and it was a no-brainer for director Rawson M. Thurber to put the two together in the 2016 film 'Central Intelligence'.
The film received a mix of medium reviews from the press but as expected the movie received a very nice income of $217 million from the $50 million that was spent to make the film.
Johnson and Hart's characters are friends from high school who work together to save America after threats of a terrorist trying to sell satellite codes.
Since 'Central Intelligence', Johnson and Hart have also worked together on the 2017 release of 'Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle' which also featured Jack Black as one of the main characters.
These two sure are a funny act together in front of the camera.
8 GTA Spano
Wonder if Dwayne wore his white t-shirt just to match the car behind him.
Johnson is seen here posing next to a white GTA Spano. A supercar that is still currently in production since they first started on it back in 2010. As you can probably gather from the name of the car, it was created in Spain and in Barcelona to be precise. The GTA Spano maybe a car some recognise from the 2014 film 'Need for Speed' which featured Breaking Bad actor Aaron Paul.
The latest GTA Spano can also be driven on the video game 'Forza Horizon 3', so something for many of us to have a go on that can't afford the actual car. It's better than nothing.
The 2013 GTA Spano V10 is believed to be nearly worth $2 million but there are cheaper GTA Spano's that go for less than a million dollars.
7 The Oscars Suit
The Oscars, the biggest event in the film calendar that takes place once a year to celebrate the film industry by looking back at some of the best films to hit the big screens over the last 12 months.
It is the most prestigious film award show and for any actor, director or producer who would get their hands on an Oscar, it would definitely be the highlight of their career.
For Johnson however, the actor has never won an Oscar but has also never been nominated for one of the award categories despite attending the event as an invited guest.
The 45-year-old may not have ever won an Oscar but he has won acting awards at other events. In 2017, he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame along with the People's Choice Award for Favourite Premium Series Actor and the NAACP Image Award for Entertainer of the Year. Despite no Oscar nominations, 2017 was still an award winning year for Mr Johnson.
Johnson's blue jacket (pictured above) sure is the highlight of his suit in this picture.
Now this is more of a car for the Rock, surely?
Having previously learnt most supercars Johnson has been pictured next to, he can't fit in them but surely 4x4s like the Ford (pictured above) is a vehicle that would suit him better.
Johnson has been known to having a number of pictures next to a Ford 4x4 over the last few years on his Instagram account. In this picture Johnson is advertising for Ford in one of their television ads.
Ford was founded by Henry Ford in 1903 over 114 years ago. The company has come up with all sorts of different cars such as the Escort, Mondeo, Fiesta and their Transit vans. It is a massive car company with an employment of over 200,000 people and their current headquarters is in the US in Dearborn in the state of Michigan.
Surely Johnson was given a free Ford vehicle for his troubles? He might actually have a car that he can fit in.
5 Hercules Suit
When you think of a character like Hercules you come up with the words strong, built, brave and a warrior. Those words were definitely suited for The Rock, who took on the role.
The actor is known for his workouts starting everyday at 4am just to keep his body as it is or to get even bigger. It is believed Johnson eats over 5,000 calories a day which involves having seven meals per day. A workout that certainly works if you keep at it like Johnson has over the last few years.
Hercules was released in 2014 and was directed by Brett Ratner who is best known for directing 'Rush Hour' with Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker, 'X-Men: The Last Stand' and 'Superman Returns'.
We see Johnson show off his results from many hours spent in the gym during the film in his Hercules outfit especially his big muscular arms.
It is arguably one of Johnson's biggest films so far in his acting career.
Okay, it may not be one of Johnson's cars but it sure is a very nice classy car.
What you are seeing is Johnson in the passenger seat of a red Dodge sports car during the filming of 'Pain and Gain' with actor Mark Wahlberg driving the car.
'Pain and Gain' was released in 2013 that also stars Anthony Mackie who is best known for his roles in the recent Marvel movies such as 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' before reprising his role of Sam Wilson/Falcon in 'Ant-Man', 'Captain America: Civil War' and the upcoming 'Avengers: Infinity War'. 'Pain and Gain' was directed by Michael Bay.
The film only made a box office of $86 million against the budget of $26 million but a profit of over $60 million is a money maker you would take any day of the week.
3 Furious 7 Suit
This suit nearly puts Johnson blending in with the wall behind him. This outfit was worn for the premiere of 'Furious 7' which as it says in the title was the seventh instalment of the 'Fast and Furious' never ending franchise.
Johnson's character Luke Hobbs first appeared in the franchise in 'Fast Five' which was released in 2011 working alongside Vin Diesel and Paul Walker.
The 'Fast and Furious' franchise has made over at least a $1 billion from the box office making it one of the most successful franchises of all time in terms of the business side of things. Which comes to show that Johnson made the right choice to contribute to the series and to this day there seems to be signs of more 'Fast and Furious' films to come.
What a job by acting and driving fast and fancy cars at the same time, not many can say they do that for a living.
2 Lamborghini Aventador Roadster
The Lamborghini cars have got to be one of the most beautiful and challenging cars planet earth has to offer. Not only are they gorgeous cars but they also have the classic signature of the driver and passenger doors going up when opening them.
It is believed the Lamborghini is another car Johnson can't fit into which does make you wonder how on earth he fitted in the cars on offer while filming the 'Fast and Furious' franchise.
The Lamborghini is based in Italy and was founded in 1963 by Ferruccio Lamborghini and has since been the one car people could only dream of having on their drive.
The Lamborghini Aventador Roadster has been in production since 2011 and was designed by Filippo Perini. The pricing starts from $288,840 as of July 2015.
At times like this you are probably happy to not have the same problem as Johnson by not fitting in a Lamborghini.
1 Jumanji Suit
It's not very often we see Johnson wear a turtle neck to complete his suit for the premieres but he certainly looks good in this one.
'Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle' was released worldwide in December 2017 so maybe it was a bit cold at the film premiere making it suitable to wear a turtle neck. But it's the Rock, anything men's clothing works for him.
Many fans had to wait a while to see another Jumanji film as Welcome to the Jungle is a sequel to Robin Williams' 1995 film 'Jumanji'. 12 years on and many were in for a treat with the exciting cast of Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillan coming together.
The film was a box office hit with the release just before Christmas. It nearly made $1 billion but instead brought in $931.1 million against the budget of $90-110 million.
It's fair to say Johnson, Hart, Black and Gillan received a big cheque for their roles.
