Dwayne Johnson Tears His Front Gate Off Due To A Power Outage
Dwayne Johnson showed off his immense strength on Instagram this week, Page Six reported. The outlet picked up on a social media post from the Hobbs and Shaw star in which he joked about tearing down the gate in front of his home after the power went out.
Dwayne - who first came to prominence in the entertainment business as a wrestler but later turned his sights to acting - took to his Instagram to post a picture of a gate he brutally tore down with his own bare hands.
On his IG on Friday, the 48-year-old wrestler-turned-actor shared a post in which he showed how he had ripped a gate down because the power went out and he wasn't able to get into his home. The star wrote in the caption, "not my finest hour, but a man gotta go to work."
According to the actor, he and his family went through a power outage this past weekend due to storms, and typically, he can just override the hydraulic system to get the gates to open, but it didn't work this time.
Put simply, the wrestler had to break it down with his bare hands. Johnson joked on his account that he made a few calls to get his gate to open, but he didn't want to wait 45 minutes, so he had no other choice but to tear it down himself.
Johnson said he "pushed, pulled, and ripped the gate" right out of the brick by himself. Approximately one hour later, his security team met the gate technician and the welders, and they were apparently shocked - and scared - when they saw what Dwayne had done.
As most know, Dwayne isn't too concerned about the money it costs to repair a gate these days. The actor has been very busy in his career, including the latest superhero film, Black Adam. Furthermore, Dwayne has made a fortune starring in the Fast and Furious franchise.
He has been hailed as the highest-paid actor two years in a row. From the period between June 2019 and June 2020, Dwayne reportedly raked in $87 million.
