WWE and Hollywood superstar The Rock has explained why he surprised current WWE star Tamina Snuka with a house.

One of the highest-paid actors in the world, Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock, has a net worth of around $320 million, according to Sportskeeda

The eight-time WWE Champion, The Rock, recently purchased a house for Snuka, who is also his cousin. Opening up on that gesture, the wrestler-turned-actor said he just wanted to get some stability to his cousin’s life as she is a single mother, but is determined to be a strong and independent mother to her two daughters. They have gone through a lot of tough times in the recent past.

"She deserves a lot more. Been a single mom, raising two kids all while living the hard life as a pro wrestler - on the road, wrestling nightly for YEARS. I wanted to bring a little stability in my cousin’s life for her and her kids," The Rock wrote on social media. 

Interestingly, earlier this month, The Rock surprised his mother too with a new house. In an Instagram post, The Rock revealed it took the design team eight weeks to get ready and everything in the home was brand new. He also went on to mention he has bought her homes in the past, but this one was special because she wants it to be her last.

"I surprised my mom and bought her a new home. Took me and my design team 8 weeks to get it ready, where she could walk thru her front door for the very first time and everything she saw was brand new and a total surprise. I’ve been lucky enough to have bought her a few homes over the years, but this one is special as she’s told me over and over these past few years, 'After a lifetime of traveling, I want this home to be my last. That's my dream'," The Rock wrote in the post. 

It was earlier reported The Rock could face off against Roman Reigns in the ring in the coming days. Reigns is not only the undisputed WWE and Universal Champion, but also is The Rock’s cousin. These two could battle out at WrestleMania 39 as the WWE Company plans to push Reigns as the "greatest of all time."
