The Rock Isn’t Hollywood’s Highest Paid Actor Anymore

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been knocked off the top spot as the world’s highest-paid actor after being beaten into second place by Mark Wahlberg. According to Forbes, The People’s Champion earned a cool $65m over the past 12 months, with Wahlberg taking the lead earning $68m.

Johnson earned an estimated $64.5m in 2016, and he will top that mark this year just a smidge thanks to his leading roles in Baywatch and the upcoming Jumanji reboot, among others.

The Rock reportedly banks $650,000 per episode from his HBO series, Ballers…let that sink in for a moment!

I don’t think Rocky will be losing any sleep.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
