Director Says The Rock Needs To Grow Up & Stop Wrestling 300lb. Men

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.”

  • John Elvis Heaney

    I dunno if a man who sacrifices story and drama for the sake of cool looking effects should be questioning anyone else’s maturity.

    • Andrew Campbell

      Bay’s one of the worst directors in Hollywood. Nuff said. He thinks explosions, excessive CGI, and Victoria Secret models are the key ingredients to making a good film.

      • Kris Mystery

        And The Rock… sounds about right.

      • wiz

        thats going a bit far , its fair to not like his films bacause of those reasons but casual movie fans like non stop action movies with an easy to follow plot. you cant argue with success

    • SOBI

      Explosions and Boobs
      Now thats Grown up!!!

    • doobie

      Well fucking said.

  • bayarea08

    It’s an ignorant statement by Michael Bay nothing more.

  • Rhawk

    Hate it when people use the term ‘grow up’ when it involves wrestling as the topic that people need to grow out of. Sounds to me like they are the real ones that need to grow up more than anything.

  • Walter White

    Mr.Explosions needs to shut the hell up! We all know he’s gonna kill yet another childhood memory with his shitty TMNT movie.Did u know he tried 2 make them aliens? Instead of “Mutants” u know as the title clearly states.-__- Fuuck u Bay! XD

    • Andrew Campbell

      Lmao I was just about to mention Ninja Turtles too, Mr. White! He’s going to rape that film just like he did with the Transformers franchise.

  • 7 year old boy

    What a jabroni. He gets more pie in a day then in your lifetime babay!!!!

    • TheKillingMoon

      Come up with something original you muppet.

  • MalaysianInvasion

    i am not a rock fan!! but dont you ever!!! and i mean EVERRRRRR make fun of the rock again!!!

    • Andrew Campbell

      I don’t think he’s making fun out of The Rock in a malicious way. That’s a death wish. I think it’s just Bay’s poor attempt at humour.

      • Marvin B.

        Sad they give rock hell regardless…dude tries to give his fans all he can yet critics always have shit to say

  • Muhahahahaha

    Hey hey hey, 260lb men. And why does Rock need to grow up? He came back to do something that he loves and is passionate about.

  • Forceton Banfodder

    Because 360 degree shots of explosion after explosion is very mature.

  • Coltcabunny

    To give Michael Bay the benefit of the doubt; is there a video of this? A hell of lot of humour and intent are lost when translated to text. We’ve got no tone of voice or context to tell if he was being facetious or was not joking.

    • backblack25

      stop sucking his cock

      • Coltcabunny

        Duck my sick.

        • Progress_Now

          lol if you miss that shot, then you’ll need a bigger bucket. call Hillbilly Jim and his slop

  • Stephen Wadelin

    Michael Bay…. Transformers 4: The Rock takes Justin Longs head, turns that son bitch side ways! And sticks it up your candy ass!

  • Two Cents

    As a filmmaker, Bay should,’t be telling anyone to grow,, especially when filmmakers a big kids that never actually grow themselves.Then again, this is the guy that barely has any imagination at all and is more bent on recycling ideas or dumbing them down.

  • currygoi

    Bay has actually said: “I make movies for teenage boys. Oh, dear, what a crime.”

    Rock makes wrestling shows for teenage boys and girls and children and their parents and their grandma and grandpa.

  • Captain Obvious

    Michael Bay, borderline racist, with stereotypical characters and crappy movies, calling other people immature. Yeah, right.

  • bigroo006

    Michael Bay, do us a favor and remake No Holds Barred. Signed, the IWC

  • backblack25

    Michael Bay needs to grow up and stop making bad movies about cars that turn into robots from outer space.

  • Reality

    lol after seeing this guy in South Park I can’t take him seriously

  • Kris Mystery

    Well should be quite awhile before we see Rock back again in WWE. He is starting to piss off the movie folks… and lets face it… that’s where most of his money is.

  • WillWhite

    I want to hear John Cena’s reaction to this… I bet he had no idea he was even 300 lbs.

  • Shane Smith

    Whether he was attempting to be humorous or not, its a ridiculous statement.

  • 7 year old boy

    Wait CM punk is barely 200 pounds and John Cena is 260 pounds. If my calculations are correct these numbers seem lower then 300 pounds. Come on Mr. Director no pain no gain!

  • Randomotic

    Bay needs to grow up, because if you think being mature is making a movie about cars that turn to robots from outer-FUCKIN-space… I question your choices in life.


    It proves The Rock is not a sell out! I do think he should retire from wrestling though! He left and became a huge movie star! He came back and gave us a reason to cheer for WWE again reminding us of the Attitude Era! The Rock now and forever is truly the greatest WWE Superstar EVER! Hes not my fav, but hes done it all and sacrificed for the WWE with the last 2 Wrestlemanias! Thank you Rock! I took my son to Little Rock Smackdown this year! It was awesome and my son got to see what WWF wrestling was! WWE is different and changed with the times! My son saw a 15 min glimpse of what the attitude era was like! 15,000 people screaming, yelling, and chanting his name! Now he watches Raw every week and we watch the PPV! The Rock brought some of us back and wrestlers like CM PUNK, DOLPH ZIGGLER, RANDY ORTON, THE SHIELD, Team Hell No, MARK HENRY, RYBACK, and the strange enigma that is SUPER CENA are entertaining us by hate or love! Our part timers Jericho, HHH, Lesnar, and the Undertaker help filling the gaps. We are awaiting hoping this generation gets its Superstar soon! One that appeals to all and takes over WWE much like the Rock and Stone Cold did!!! BTW WRESTLEMANIA 30 Main EVENT: STONE COLD vs CM PUNK! DEMAND IT!!!!

    • Ghost

      I feel like u just spoke ma heart man…. Amen bro….!! Rocky may not be the greatest wrestler ever, But I can say that he was, is & will be one of the greatest entertainer of WWE all time period….!!

      • Progress_Now

        he would’ve spoken better if he used paragraphs :)

  • Stoops Nic

    Someone should tell Michael Bay to grow up and stop making crap movies.

  • yes

    Michael Bay needs to grow a pair and not act like the smartest guy in the room.

  • fatneal

    who in the blue hell does michael bay hack ass think he is?

  • fatneal

    who in the blue hell does michael bay hack ass think he is?

  • Nate

    Uh neither John Cena nor CM Punk are 300lbs.

  • Eric Zeigher

    who the hell is michael bay?

  • w4rm4chine

    Hey Mike, make a movie that has a tangible plot line and at least 5 minutes with no over the top spec effects. Then I might give a flying monkey f*ck what you think about anything. Probably not, but you never know, stranger things have happened… douche nozzle.
