Hines Ward NFL Dancing With the Stars Winner 12,000 sf 8 bedrooms 13 baths mansion for sale $7,500,000:Hines Ward, the NFL Pro Bowler Dancing With the Stars Winner architecture buff's mansion, listed his mansion for sale for $7,500,000. Ward achieved the "W Hotel" look he was striving for. And as far as size and scope, the house is standard-issue professional athlete: 12,000+ square feet, eight bedrooms, 13 baths, and two car garages (one with an apartment above, where Ward's mom currently lives). Reports of the home's location were understandably vague then; we now know it sits among the many other enormous houses on Sandy Springs' picturesque Riverside Drive. According to the listing, Ward has been in the house for less than four years. Given his retirement from the NFL on Tuesday, one wonders if this isn't the beginning of a career in real estate for one of Georgia's favorite Bulldogs.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s house is truly tricked out. It is also no longer his. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s house sold for $4.9 million to an undisclosed businessman. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson went from wrestler to popular actor in record time. Handsome, athletic, and smart, the California-born Mr. Johnson, played football in college and graduated with degrees in Criminology and Physiology. His football career did not advance much past college, so he joined his family’s very well established wrestling dynasty. From the late 90s through the mid-2000s, he was incredibly popular on the WWF/WWE circuit, and brought many new fans to the sport. His appearance as The Scorpion King, in both “The Mummy”, and “The Scorpion King”, further increased his fame, and he slowly began to remove himself from wrestling to focus on his acting career. While he has returned to wrestling periodically, he has built a solid resume in action films and comedies, and has managed to achieve that rare crossover success about which pop stars and athletes dream. He has also managed to amass a sizeable fortune, and, as most stars do, he used a portion of those funds to purchase a lavish home in California. Recently, however, he sold it, and judging by the photos, if one thing can be said about “The Rock”, it is that he likes to live large.
