Starring in the franchises like Fast and Furious and Jumanji, Dwayne Johnson has gained worldwide recognition as one of the biggest Hollywood stars.

While he is known for portraying strong and tough characters on-screen, Johnson is also widely popular for competing in the WWE ring.

And he did the same as he started making a little bit of money after starting his WWE career. The Rock shared that he bought a Rolex for himself. However, he was saddened after he lost the watch during a live WWE match. He shared that the watch slipped off his hand after a chaotic brawl broke out in the ring.

While others were engaged in the brawl, Johnson was looking for his watch. Although he eventually found it, his prized Rolex watch was already damaged. The Jungle Cruise star shared that he was “heartbroken” seeing the condition of his watch.
