The rise of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson since his decision to leave pro wrestling and the WWE has been incredible.
Already regarded as one of the top male actors in Hollywood, Johnson is now the most valuable star on Instagram, a social media site.
Thanks to his 187 million followers, Johnson has the power to charge advertisers over $1 million per post. Yes, just for posting on Instagram, the former WWE champion makes $1 million.
According to Hopper HQ, a social media marketing firm, Johnson tops all other celebrities in the category.
Regarded as an actor, producer and businessman, Johnson is the lone person to crack the $1 million mark. Kylie Jenner is second at $986,000 per post followed by soccer icon Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo actually has more followers than Johnson with 225 million.
Johnson, who turned 48 years older earlier this year, is considered one of the highest-grossing actors of all-time. Basically, his films have made over $10.5 billion worldwide and over $3.5 billion in North America.
