Dwayne Johnson Rips High-Security Steel Gate Clean Off Wall After Power Outage Leaves Him Stuck Inside
Dwayne Johnson has truly lived up to his reputation by ripping off an electric gate clean off a wall - they don't call him The Rock for nothing. You can see the aftermath here:
And he wasn't just being destructive for the sake of it - he did it purely in the name of showbiz. Not wanting to leave a production crew waiting for him, the actor pulled a broken gate off a brick wall on Friday (18 September).
The former wrestler took to Instagram to share his handiwork, writing on Instagram: "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'."

You've got to respect that work ethic.
However, fellow actor Ryan Reynolds demonstrated his trademark wit when he commented on the post, saying: "The gate opened the OTHER way."
Johnson then went on to post a video of the aftermath, saying that technicians and welders had to deal with getting the gate sorted.
He added: "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 mobilised 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."
I suppose we have, mate.
