The Rock Issues Update On WrestleMania Injury, WWE To Make Announcement Thursday In Orlando

– Former WWE Champion Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has issued an update on his claim of an abdominal tear injury mid-way through his match with John Cena at WrestleMania.

Johnson wrote on Twitter Wednesday afternoon, “Injury update: Physical therapy starts tomorrow. Hardcore training starts today. Thank U guys for the love. 5 weeks out..#RoadToHercules.”

Johnson had previously indicated on Twitter that he believes he suffered the injury while delivering the Rock Bottom to Cena during the bout. Last Saturday, Johnson revealed that he and his physician had elected to not re-attach tendons to his pelvis as part of the rehabilitation process. “They’ll just scar up,” he noted.

– According to the Orlando Sentinal, WWE is scheduled to make an announcement tomorrow at 11:30 a.m. in Orlando, Florida, regarding a “new developmental.” State Gov. Rick Scott, Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs, WWE Executive Vice President, Talent and Live Events Paul Levesque (a/k/a Triple H) and Garry Jones, president of Full Sail University, are expected to attend the conference.

WWE representatives would not provide any additional details to the publication. The Sentinal notes that “several wrestling-insider websites” have speculated that the WWE will open a training facility.

    I know Rock does love the WWE and all because it made him famous and what not, but everytime he Tweets something about movies or whatever makes me feel like he doesnt care

    • pwnez

      You also have to remember that’s the Rock’s personal twitter account, not just a WWE-made account. He uses it to promote both WWE appearances and his movie roles.

        Yeah i know but i feel like he says it so blunt when he says #RoadtoHercules

        • pwnez

          It’s only because that’s his next project. He isn’t scheduled to do anything with WWE anytime soon. The next time we’ll see him is probably around SummerSlam so that’s about 4 months away.

          I single tweet can only have like 140 characters.

      So, he can’t have any interest on career endeavors outside of pro wrestling without you feeling he doesn’t care? Do you direct the same vitriol at Jericho and his Rock interests? HBK and his hunting hobbies? Brock and his farming/banging Sable?

      They owe nothing to us. They do a job. Entertain us. We pay them for it. That’s where it ends. They have no obligation to be attached to us beyond that. We certainly aren’t going to be attached to them beyond their usefulness to us.

      Example: When’s the last time anyone gave a crap about Braden Walker, Hade Vansen or Mordecai? Gone and forgotten and we don’t care.

    damn rock is a hard ass worker between wrestling and being a movie star. i don’t know how he does it

  • Kenneth Anderson Jr.

    Get better Rock, we’ll be waiting for you at SummerSlam.

  • LargerBellasPie

    We have already seen Rock VS Lesnar. At least put him with some other talent like Orton, Cody Rhodes or Cessaro

    • Keith

      Nobody is going to be interested inthe Rock vs. Cesaro. The mass audience have to care about Cesaro first. Come on man….. and Cody Rhodes is still wet behind the ears for people to care about him taking on a guy like the Rock. He much like Cesaro does not get mass audience support either. Not to mention the fact that he is no threat to him at all. A guy like Randy Orton yes. More established, badass, respected, has huge fan support, and looks like he could legitimately kick the Rock’s ass and win.

    As much as I like the Rock I think he should retire from WWE. I’m looking at this from a personal/profitable perspective. Rocky makes a mil+ a year in the WWE as to where he can make a million+ per movie. Rocky has another few years left in him as an action movie hero and he doesn’t need to be getting injured and jeopardizing big pays. I’m not saying he can’t come back when he’s done doing action movies for a while but he needs to prioritize to what is best for him financially and that is movies.

    • Andrew Campbell

      A million per movie?? Try $15 million+ per movie lol

  • Marko

    I would love to see The Rock wrestle with guys like Randy Orton, Daniel Bryan, Dolph Ziggler, Antonio Cesaro or Sheamus for that matter when he returns.

  • GodsLoyalSon

    I just hope that he’s heathy enough to do both that and Fast 7

    FINALLY We may have seen the last of this not talent piece of trash. Thank god almighty we are free at last!
