The Rock Responds To Michael Bay Telling Him To “Grow Up”, Cody Rhodes Challenges Morgan Freeman

– As reported earlier, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was forced to miss Monday night’s Los Angeles premiere of his latest film, Pain & Gain, due to an emergency hernia operation earlier in the day. Speaking to E! Online on the red carpet, movie director Michael Bay suggested the injury stemmed from Johnson’s wrestling exploits.

“He was pushing it too hard,” Bay said. “[He] needs to grow up and stop wrestling 300-pound men.”

Johnson responded to Bay’s remark via Twitter this afternoon, writing, “Funny sh*t! Michael Bay joked I should stop wrestling 300lb men. I agree – I’ll switch to women. #ALLPainNOGain.”

– Cody Rhodes has challenged Morgan Freeman to a wrestling duel.

When asked which celebrity he would like to wrestle, the WWE Superstar said the famous actor, film director, and narrator could lend his authoritative voice to the bout.

“Morgan Freeman, because I feel like I could win because he’s old; although I’m sure he’s tough,” Rhodes told www.tv3.ie in an interview promoting WWE’s annual November tour of the UK. “But then we could sell it and he could narrate the match, like he narrates everything. He could explain everything because he’s such a great storyteller he could tell the story of me beating him. That would be wonderful.”

While Rhodes initially pursued an acting career in Hollywood before officially entering the family business in 2006, he has no ambitions to launch a career now.

“I always said absolutely not, but if a man was to walk in and tell me, ‘Alright, you’re going to be in ‘Fast and the Furious 35’, for instance, I’d be running with him,” said Rhodes. “I would only want to do it as a pro wrestler, like Cody Rhodes from WWE in something, because my home is the ring, I don’t really have any ambition to platform into another form of entertainment.”
