Moreover, Johnson recollected a personal story from the past when he was cut from the Canada Football League. At that time, he had a total of $7 in his wallet, which wasn’t enough to book a cab from the airport. And then he had to take the help of his friend.

In the podcast, Johnson also said, “You know, I’d left University of Miami. The guys who I was playing with at that time, Ray Lewis, Warren Sapp, they were lighting the world on fire, their dreams were coming true, they were buying their mom’s houses, and when I got cut from Canada that season, that was when I had seven bucks in my pocket.”

Yes, you read it right. The Rock has played with some renowned football players like Ray Lewis and Warren Sapp in his teenage.

However, Johnson’s statements also show how difficult his teenage years must have been. Not only because of the financial crunch but because the other teammates of his age were flourishing in their careers. But surviving and coming out strong from all those days, The Rock has now made it big, being an $800 million star and one of the richest actors across the globe.
