Duty Calls: Dwayne’ The Rock’ Breaks Down Own Gate when it Wouldn’t Open

Duty Calls: Dwayne’ The Rock’ Breaks Down Own Gate when it Wouldn’t Open

Apart from being a former professional wrestler, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is also known for his work in movies like “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle”, “Fast and the Furious” and many other franchises, among others. Now, he will also probably be known as the guy who tore his gate when it would not open.

Fear not; the man just wanted to get to work on time. The actor took to where he shared a photo of his front gate, which lay on the ground after he had ripped from the hinges.

“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,” he explained. “I tried to override the hydraulic system to open the gates, which usually works when the power goes out — but this time, it wouldn’t.”

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. Tore it 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” 🤣 Not my finest hour, but I had to go to work. And I think I’m 💯 ready to be #blackadam 😄💪🏾 #ripgates

After determining how long it would take him the technicians to arrive and fix the situation, he decided he couldn’t wait 45 minutes. At the time, he considered the hundreds of movie production crew members all waiting for him at work.

In another post, Johnson shared video clips of the wreckage. In one clip, three people can be seen carrying one of the gates to bring it to the side of the driveway.

Well here’s the destruction 🤦🏽‍♂️ I left behind after pulling my gates off myself 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 and placing it 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

In the end, Johnson expressed his gratitude to the technicians and welders for taking care of the destruction he left behind. 

 

Surely, we can safely say: The Rock makes movies on his way to make movies :).
