If there is one thing The Rock is known for, it’s definitely the fact that he sure lives up to the moniker and this story is yet another proof.
Real name Dwayne Johnson, the former wrestler turned top shot Hollywood actor left jaws hanging when he revealed how a power outage led him to do something many people would tag bizarre.
In a recent Facebook post, the Fast and Furious actor shared a photo of his destroyed gate, explaining what led to it.
In a lengthy caption, he revealed that due to the severe storms in his area, he suffered a power outage causing his front gate not to function.
Johnson who needed to get to work stated that he attempted to override the hydraulic system to open the gates but it didn’t work.
He then proceeded to call the gate technician but didn’t have 45 minutes to wait for them as he didn’t want to keep the production team on set waiting.
So he did what only The Rock would do - rip his front gates open, singlehandedly.
In his words:
"Not my finest hour ♂️, but a man’s gotta go to work. We experienced a power outage due to severe storms, causing my front gate not to open. I tried to override the hydraulic system to open the gates, which usually works when power goes out - but this time it wouldn’t. Made some calls to see how fast I can get the gate tech on site, but I didn’t have 45min to wait. By this time, I know I have hundreds of production crew members waiting for me to come to work so we can start our day.
So I did what I had to do. I pushed, pulled and ripped the gate completely off myself. Ripped it completely out of the brick wall, severed the steel hydraulics and threw it on the grass. My security team was able to meet the gate technician and welders about an hour later — and they were apparently, “in disbelief and equally scared” as to how I ripped it off. Not my finest hour, but I had to go to work."

"He ripped his front gate just to get to work!!! That’s discipline....We Nigerians ....ordinary small headache... Phone rings... ayam not coming to work today."
"Na man wey dey rip gate off we go marry."
"I was reading and literally visualizing him act it out."
"He’s indeed the Rock but definitely not the Rock of ages."
"This man. Must not find another man on top of his woman."
"Them call person rock una day surprised say he break brick."
"Civil servants just left the WhatsApp group."
"We don't call him "The Rock" for nothing."
Only a while ago, The Rock took to his social media pages to celebrate his daughter as she turned a year older. Posting on social media, the actor shared a throwback photo of himself and his daughter while she was just a toddler.
The celebrity dad captioned the photo with the sweetest words that one could be sure left her smiling.
