The Rock to have surgery on abdomen

entdwaynejohnsontherockWWE’s fights may be fake, but the injuries? All too real. Case in point: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson announced on Twitter recently that he would undergo surgery to repair damage sustained during his WrestleMania clash with John Cena earlier this month.

“Saw my Dr who had to push my intestines back thru the tear in my abdomen. Kinda romantic,” the pro wrestler turned movie star tweeted on Sunday, April 21. “Surgery is next week. #BringItOn.”

According to, Johnson, 40, met Cena in the ring on April 7, during a WWE Title defense match for WrestleMania 29. As a result of the confrontation, he suffered a fairly serious injury to his midsection.

“In the middle of last night’s Wrestlemania match I tore my abdomen & abductor muscles off the bone. Just part of the job,” the People’s Champion tweeted April 8. “But as we know…It’s all about #JustBringIt. WWE Universe, THANK YOU for all the love & well wishes. Means everything to me. #LeaveItAllInTheRing.”

“My drs said that starting back training w/ torn abdominals would be a *****. Just found out they were right. We gotta push thru…” he added a few days later. And then, on April 13: “Drs & I elected not to reattach tendons to my pelvis. They’ll just scar up.”

In possibly related news, the actor was absent from the April 22 Hollywood premiere of his new movie, Pain & Gain. The Michael Bay-directed flick costars Mark Wahlberg and hits theaters Friday. (Us Weekly)
