Michael Bay Clarifies His Comments That The Rock Needs To Stop Wrestling

“Pain & Gain” Director Michael Bay has clarified his remarks about Dwayne “” Johnson needing to “grow up and stop wrestling 300 pound men.” (Video above)

Bay wrote on his official website:

“Wrestling fans, it was a joke said on Entertainment Tonight–with a laugh. You can see the clip for yourselves. The most important person to see the on-air joke was Dwayne. I love seeing The Rock wrestle. I hope he wrestles 10 more years. I joked on air because Dwayne was not at our LA premiere due to his injury.”

As noted earlier, The Rock responded to the controversy earlier today:

      Jurassic Park was Spielberg lol. You’re right though, Bad Boys is definitely one of his better films.

      • fatneal

        oops….after lookin it up i sqw he directed “i am number 4” as well…i liked that movie…but thats it

    • TrueFan

      um.. what jurassic park did bay direct again?? =S I think you mean Michael Crichton.. who wrote the book that inspired the first one.

      • fatneal

        i failed….

  • Bret

    Wow. Don’t ever let Michael Bay talk on air again. What a douche….

    I won’t be shocked at all if the Rock never wrestles again. They certainly have to pay him more now since his injury is probably preventing him from filming for a bit. And the Rock looks huge. Looks like he is roiding.

    fuck Micheal Bay. i think he needs to grow up and quit destroying Classics!

    • Handled1411

      He’s not destroying classics. He’s pouring money into suck ass remakes. George Lucas destroys classics….

        the new tmnt isnt finished, and its already destroyed, either way, he’s an idiot, he needs to stop with the suck ass remakes, they r horrible.

  • TrueFan

    Optimus Prime needs a Rock bottom

    • Handled1411

      Optimus would totally kick out of a Rock Bottom

      • TrueFan

        ok, but not after a People’s Elbow was added to it. ;) lol

        • Dave Smith

          Cena would tho

          • http://twitter.com/AJCampbellNYG Andrew Campbell

            Of course, Super Cena kicks out of anything.

          • http://www.facebook.com/chuck.scaggs.1 Chuck Scaggs

            Cena is over rated

            That’s the understatement of the century lol.

          • Handled1411

            I want Optimus Prime’s robotic dick. I want to stroke it until it transforms.

          • RuthlessRaj

            dafuq did I just read? lol

          • Handled1411

            I’m not sure why you are pretending to be me to make gay robot jokes. Don’t worry I’m not offended by your trolling. But just so you know if I were gay for robots, I’d be a top. Optimus would be taking it up the tailpipe and I’d make him starscream.

            You would “be a top”? What is that some sort of Craigslist slang for “I have sex with men who wish they were women”?

            Gross

    Michael Bay may make shitty movies but I’ll give him credit hes a money maker. Hell if it wasn’t for Bay no one would know who Megan Fox is.

    • Bo

      Because that’s what the world needed. An ugly piece of plastic that can’t act

  • big nig

    Well that statement blew up in bay’s face.

  • http://twitter.com/ToonamiFaith Toonami

    The bigger joke is that he thinks majority of wrestling fans actually watch Entertainment Tonight.

  • Just FYI

    When people have to clarify that something is just a joke, that shows you how over sensitive society has become.

    • BMPunk

      Or not funny.

  • http://www.facebook.com/craig.deboard Craig DeBoard

    LOL @ all of the “smart fans” who were too stupid to see Bay was joking around with one of his FRIENDS about the situation.

    Morons.

    • Stranger

      Why did you refer to them as “smart fans”?

    • Progress_Now

      lol at the pot calling the kettle black, you’re one of the “smartest” fans around here

  • Coltcabunny

    I would say “I told you so”. But those words have lost all meaning to certain people on SeScoops. So I will therefore say “I informed you thusly.”

    I pointed out he might have been joking in the comments on the other news piece and got downvoted to shit for even daring to suggest Michael Bay may have had a sense of humour and this was a joke.

    I. Informed. You. Thusly.
