Dwayne is famous for Acting, wrestling, eyebrow Olympics, abs/pecs/all the muscles, and being the most likable, down-to-earth chiseled god-like person around.
The Rock is so-named for a reason—as in “muscles as hard as a” or “body that appears to be chiseled from.” The actor keeps fans up to date on his workout routine, which is a huge draw, whether you’re looking for fitspo or eye candy.
Another major Instagram strength of Johnson’s? His selfie videos, which showcase the lovable teddy bear that lives inside the suit of muscle armor. The rock was at no.8
