The Rock Needed Emergency Hernia Surgery

Shortly after his Wrestlemania bout with John Cena, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson had to undergo emergency hernia surgery. A day before the surgery, he tweeted, “Saw my Dr who had to push my intestines back thru the tear in my abdomen. Kinda romantic. Surgery is next week. #BringItOn.” Well, that’s…

The Rock explained the injury happened during the match and that he tore his abdomen and abductor muscles off the bone. He then added that the doctors advised him against training for a while because it “would be a b*tch.” He found out for himself that they were right. He also informed everyone that the he and the doctors decided not to reattach tendons to his pelvis because they’ll scar up.

And of course he’s still flexing even in his hospital bed. Hopefully he doesn’t strain too hard while flexing and pop his intestine out again. Don’t you hate when your intestines are just flopping everywhere outside of your abdomen? So embarrassing.
