I believe that Fred Durst and Limp Bizkit really tapped into something with their 1999 release of "Break Stuff", a startlingly accurate portrayal of the collective frustration we all experience when it comes to bad days and how we rally against them by breaking physical, inanimate objects.
Now if you know anything about The Rock, it's that he's probably one of the busiest men in the world and his days are always jam, jam packed.
So jam packed that in order for him to get his workout in, he needs to wake up at 4am in order to stay fit. So jam packed that his meetings are planed down to the very minute, so any little obstacle can throw his entire day out of whack. Like if there's a power outage that makes it impossible for him to leave his home. Which is exactly what happened.
The fully automated electronic gate placed in the front of The People's Champ's house didn't have a functioning manual override apparently.
So Dwayne decided to make his own "manual override", which consisted of him putting his massive muscles to work in order to tear the gate right off of its hinges and cast it aside to the ground. The aftermath looked like something straight out of the action star's movies, with iron shrapnel decorating the pavement.
In The Rock's own words, he needed to "get to work," and we all know how serious he is about getting stuff done.
While he admits it wasn't his finest moment, he certainly was more than willing to share the results of his freak out when he learned that the override system for the gate's hydraulic system wasn't working. He called techs to see how long it would take for them to arrive on the scene...but was disappointed to learn it would take an entire 45 minutes for them to arrive.
And that's time that the Rock just didn't have.
Which is why he ultimately decided to Hulk, errr, Black Adam out on the gate. When repair crews showed up on site they were "in disbelief and equally scared."
Now, is The Rock engaging in some form of meathead braggadocio? Absolutely, but the man's clearly one of the most intelligent "meatheads" in the world, who managed to leverage a pro-wrestling career into becoming one of the most powerful men in entertainment who loves what he does.
