WWE superstar and Hollywood action hero Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson underwent successful abdominal surgery on Monday to repair injuries sustained at WrestleMania 29.
The injury caused The Rock to miss RAW the following night as well as the Los Angeles movie premiere of his new film, “Pain & Gain.”
It’s been known that The Rock’s decision to wrestle for WWE was not looked upon fondly by his associates in Hollywood, who rely on their leading man to be healthy in order to shoot and promote his movie projects. Now, director Michael Bay (Pain & Gain, Transformers) is speaking out about The Rock’s decision to juggle wrestling and movies.
At the recent Pain & Gain premiere event, Michael Bay explained why The Rock was not in attendance and gave him some career advice:
“Dwayne’s hurt tonight. He was pushing it too hard. [He] needs to grow up and stop wrestling 300-pound men.”
