Chances are, if you currently exist on Planet Earth, you’re aware of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. He’s a surefire WWE Hall Of Famer and eight-time world champion. Oh, and he’s also one of the most bankable movie stars in all of Hollywood, revitalizing the Fast And Furious franchise, putting up massive box office numbers as the star of Jumanji, and getting ready for yet another potential blockbuster year as the star of Rampage, Skyscraper, and more.
Oh, also: He legitimately might be running for president in 2020. So, yeah: There’s a reason why no one questions the Rock’s self-appointed nickname “The Most Electrifying Man In All Of Entertainment.”
Energy blogger Matt Chester has taken that nickname one step further and actually crunched the numbers to determine just how electrifying the Rock actually is.
Basing his calculations on the average power of the human brain (0.085 Watts), the amount of power the average human body produces at rest (approximately 100 W an hour) and the amount of kilocalories, or food calories, an average body produces over the course of 24 hours (2,065 kilocalories), Chester unveils his theory:
But what do we know about The Rock? We know that he is the most electrifying man, so we have to adjust these numbers to the appropriate level for the People’s Champion. Given that we live in an age where the answer to any question is just a Google search away, we know that on an average day Dwayne Johnson consumes 5,165 Calories. Working backwards, that equates to about 6 kWh of energy for the entire day or an average power output of 250 W— two and a half times greater than the average person. That figure alone is quite impressive, but through savvy social media management The Rock has also made public his habit of epic cheat days where he binges on all the fatty and sweet foods that he abstains from during his periods of training. One such feast documented on Instagram, which included 21 brownies, 12 pancakes, and 4 double dough pizzas, was calculated at 15,000 Calories. Even if he ate and drank nothing else the rest of the day, The Rock would total 17.4 kWh of energy or an average power output of 726 W on cheat meal days– over seven times greater than the average person.
So there you have it, folks: At his cheat-day peaks, the Rock is roughly seven times more electrifying than you, me, and anyone else reading this right now whose name isn’t Dwayne Johnson. The Most Electrifying Man In All Of Entertainment, indeed.
Chester also goes on to calculate how much power was needed for Hulk Hogan to bodyslam Andre The Giant at WrestleMania III, as well as if WWE’s recent decision to cut pyrotechnics from their production helped the company go green. Check it all out here.
