Dwayne Johnson and his say in this matter

Dwayne, of course, is happy with all this news. He wrote on his social media:

“I work extremely hard but never anticipated (in my wildest dreams) I’d become the highest-paid actor in Forbes’ history. I don’t have a Harvard MBA, but my business philosophy and acumen has been sharpened over time and thru failure,”

“My goal when I was wrestling in flea markets for $40 bucks per match (well before the bright lights of the @wwe) is still the exact same goal I have today — ALWAYS put my AUDIENCE FIRST. I have one boss — the world. Send you home happy, and I’ve done my job. I’m the dude who started w/ $7 bucks. I’m grateful to the bone and hungry to the core.”
