The Rock has been a champion in WWE and as 2013 comes to a close he is the money-making champ of Hollywood as Forbes reports he is the highest grossing actor of the year. In this year, Dwayne 'the Rock' Johnson starred in 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation', 'Snitch', 'Pain & Gain', and 'Fast & Furious 6'. If you also factor in the big business that Rocky did with WWE this year as the headliner of Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania 29, you got put the box office bank behind this man.

Rock's biggest movie was 'Fast & Furious 6' which raked in $789 million dollars worldwide. in 2014, Rock is set to return with 'Fast & Furious 7' and a possible franchise-starter with a titular role in mythological action tale 'Hercules'.

Rock beats out Robert Downey Jr., Vin Diesel, and Paul Walker on the highest grossing actors of 2013 list according to the article.

With all of this success recently on the big screen and a serious muscle tear coming out Wrestlemania, WWE fans should not expect to see the Great One back in wrestling action anytime soon.
