WWE’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.
UPDATE: Johnson’s rep tells E! that the star had an emergency hernia operation on Monday, April 22, forcing him to miss the Hollywood premiere of his new movie, Pain & Gain. He is now recovering at home.
One day before the procedure, the pro wrestler turned movie star tweeted: “Saw my Dr who had to push my intestines back thru the tear in my abdomen. Kinda romantic. Surgery is next week. #BringItOn.”
