Dwayne Johnson just proved that his brawn is not just for show and also he is something of an action hero in real-life as well. He shared a photo on Instagram showing a ripped metal gate. Johnson shared that he himself wrenched away the gate, hinges and all, after a power outage locked him inside.

The Rock said that he had to go to work and did not want hundreds of crew members waiting. So he basically brought out his inner Black Adam.

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
