Professionally, Dwayne Johnson has been called Rocky Maivia, The Rock, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and finally, back to his birth name. The transformation from People’s Champ to a bona fide, full-fledged movie star has been completed. If you don’t believe that last statement, feel free to look at Forbes list of highest-paid actors from 2012. Dwayne Johnson comes in at number four, banking a cool $36 million last year alone.
