The action star and former WWE wrestler tops Forbes list for biggest male acting moneymakers of 2016, released Thursday.
Raking in $64.5 million, Johnson more than doubled his 2015 earnings, and took the title from last year's holder, "Iron Man" star Robert Downey Jr., who dropped to eighth place this year with $33 million.
The number two earner on this year's list, Jackie Chan, made $61 million.
Johnson has been making profitable moves both in front of and behind the camera.
His roles in films like "Central Intelligence" and "Fast 8" have continued to establish him as a film star. He also serves as a producer on the latter, which will be the latest in the highly successful "Fast and Furious" franchise.
On the small screen, he's got a hit on his hands with his HBO series "Ballers," which was recently renewed for a third season. Johnson stars as a retired NFL player turned financial manager and also acts as one of the executive producers.
"Jason Bourne" star Matt Damon came in third with $55 million earned, thanks in part to his Golden Globe winning performance in "The Martian." That sum was a 120% increase over his total from last year.
Fourth place earner Tom Cruise made $53 million; Johnny Depp came in fifth with $48 million.
One surprising entry on the list for some may be Adam Sandler.
The actor landed the number 12 spot with $30 million thanks to his straight-to-streaming production deal with Netflix.
