The Rock ripped his front gate off the hinge so he could go work on a movie

The Rock is more reliable than the mailman. As the creed goes, neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds. Or in The Rock’s case, nor a front gate locked shut due to a power outage.

The Rock was in a hurry to make the set for filming his current movie, Red Notice. The gate was not cooperating, so The Rock shined it up real nice, turned it sideways, and stuck it straight up your candy ass! Well, he didn’t actually have time to do all that. Instead, The Rock just tore the front gate off the hinges.

Unfortunately, there is no footage of that awesome feat of strength and rage, but there is photo evidence of the aftermath.

There is also some video surveying the damage. My favorite is the second video (click the right arrow) with three men carrying one half of the gate that The Rock could no doubt carry all himself.

The Rock said it was not his finest hour, but I beg to differ. That was indeed a great little story. He probably has security footage of the incident, so let’s hope he releases that one day. It would be a hilarious hoot.

As for the movie that demanded destruction, Red Notice also stars Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot. The summary states, “An Interpol agent tracks the world’s most wanted art thief.” I wish The Rock was cast as the thief. I’d like to see his massive frame snake through a maze of infrared beams, such as Catherine Zeta-Jones in Entrapment.

To no surprise, The Rock will be the butt-kicking law enforcer.

That concludes your weekly reminder that The Rock is 100% badass.
