But does he also do drywall?

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson  actor, wrestler, enemy of Tyrese Gibson  can add a new title to his CV: Demolition expert.

The 48-year-old Johnson explained via Instagram Friday that he quite literally tore down his own front gate after a power outage caused by a storm rendered it inoperable.

“Not my finest hour, but a mans gotta go to work,” he began his caption. “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 wouldnt.”

“Made some calls to see how fast I can get the gate tech on site, but I didnt have 45min to wait,” Johnson continued. “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,” he wrote matter-of-factly. “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.” (That makes two of us!)

Of course, Johnson  who finished his post with a plug for his upcoming role as the titular DC superhero in “Black Adam”  can afford gates in spades these days. He’s notched the honor of being Hollywood’s highest-paid actor two years in a row now, pulling in over $87 million from June 2019 to June 2020.
