Update On The Rock’s Injury & Future With WWE

0

Following up on the news of The Rock being injured at WrestleMania, he tore his abdominal and abductor muscles, as well as his groin during his match against John Cena. He immediately flew home to be checked out by doctors and is heading overseas very soon to begin filming the movies Hercules.

Initially, there was a lot of heat on The Rock, because it was unclear why he left town so abruptly when he was scheduled to appear on RAW. Now, there’s concern that The Rock will be hesitant to wrestle again, if this injury delays the shooting of Hercules.

WWE’s creative team was not informed that The Rock would not be on RAW until the afternoon, which required massive rewrites to the RAW script.

Shortly before WWE Raw went on the air, ring announcer Justin Roberts addressed the live crowd explaining that The Rock suffered a strained abdominal muscle and he would not appear on tonight’s show as previously advertised.

The Rock himself addressed the issue on his Twitter page (@TheRock) by tweeting:

He followed up with a second tweet thanking his fans:
