Average male who is 6'0'' and weighs around 160-180-lbs and is pretty active(lifting,bball,crossfit,...) needs around 200g of protein per day. If the same guy would be consuming 300-350g of protein per day, those 150g of excess protein won't go to waste, it will just transform into glucose which is main source of energy. But the carbs are also converted into glucose so it's really pointless to seek energy(glucose) in protein sources when it can be found in much cheaper carbs. Of course for the Rock that's not really an issue.
