Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson rips security gate down after power cut left him trapped

The former WWE superstar turned Hollywood hero tore down the security gate at his home after it was unable to open due to a power outage that was inflicted upon by several storms.

The actor and former wrestling champion shared a picture of the damage on Instagram and revealed the full story of what happened.

He wrote: “Not my finest hour, but I had to 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.”

Johnson added: “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.”

However, fellow actor Ryan Reynolds was quick to comment on the post, saying: “The gate opened the OTHER way.
