“This is a sign. I don’t need it”: Dwayne Johnson, Who Charges $20 Million+ Per Movie, Saw WWE Destroy His Most Prized Diamond Studded Possession

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. He joined the entertainment world after conquering the WWE ring as the People’s Champ. And as he grew up watching his father in the ring, he made out a concept for being successful in his life.

The Jumanji star shared what he considered being successful meant and how it taught him one of the valuable lessons of his life during an interview with Oprah Winfrey.

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.

And with the same belief, he also bought one for himself in 1999 while he was still living in a rented apartment. The Red Notice star called it a “horrible financial decision,” as he stated that it wasn’t the right judgment for him at the time. And after he lost the watch in the WWE live show, he claimed that he decide to spend his money on more valuable things and never got anything like that again.
