Dwayne Johnson Rips Electric Gate From Brick Wall To Avoid Being Late For Work

The Rock said it wasn't his finest hour.

Dwayne Johnson "ripped" his electric gate off the hinges to get to work when a power outage caused it to fail.

The 48-year-old wrestler turned actor usually relies on an override of the hydraulic system during power cuts but when it didn't work, he decided to use his strength and remove the gate all together.

Taking to Instagram, he shared: "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. And I'm 100 per cent ready to be BLACK ADAM (sic)"

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. And I’m 💯 ready to be BLACK ADAM⚡️💪🏾 #ripgates

Well here’s the destruction 🤦🏽‍♂️ I left behind after ripping my gates off and going to work. This footage was taken from my security after I had already left and he arrived on the scene. The second video is of our technicians and welders carrying one of the gates I tore off and placing it very gently in the grass. As you guys know from my last post, there was a power outage at my house, causing my gates to not open. Sure as hell wasn’t my best hour, but there were a lot of people waiting for me at work so I did what I had to do, hopped in my pick up and went to work. Maybe next time I’ll just hop the gates and call an Uber. Actually, no I won’t. There’s no fun in that 😈 Jokes aside, THANK YOU to the techs and welders who mobilized very quickly in the morning to come over and take care of the destruction. Thank you, gentlemen. Just one of those days where I wasn’t in the mood. We’ve all been there. 🥃 #ripgates

And if Dwayne now has to buy a new gate, it should be no trouble as he recently was named Forbes' highest-paid actor in the world for a second year in a row.

It was revealed he made a whopping US$89.4 million (S$121.5 mil) between June 1, 2018 and June 1, 2019. And now he's gone and done it again, after he raked in $87.5 million for the last year, including a whopping US$23.5 million for Red Notice. — BANG
