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

rock-pain-gain

– 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.”

    He didnt sound like he was joking. The only funny thing related to Michael Bay is his films. And that isnt a compliment. Nice to see Rock being the bigger man here.

      I wonder if he was implying that Michael Bay likes fat girls? If anyone needed proof that Michael Bay is a joke, look at how he’s butchered the NInja Turtles movie releasing soon.

        The movie isn’t even released yet and because of Bay’s track record we all already know it’s going to suck lol.

    funny the reason why he missed the premier is the same reason why this movie is relevant

    I would image wrestling is more fun than acting

    • French_Toast_Mafia

      I would rather make millions (and millions!) of dollars making 4 movies a year than wrestling on a full time WWE schedule.

    I’m pretty sure the rocky doesn’t do too much of anything with women.

  • wwetnadudez

    Would be so cool if Morgan Freeman narrated WWE’s promo packages for big matches.

    Michael Bay is just another asshat who can’t keep his mouth shut. Maybe it was a joke – who knows – but that doesn’t change the fact that he’s an asshat.

    Basically he joked and meant that Dwayne is working too hard and he is spreading himself too thin WWE should think about that with all the schedules he has to do. and if the rock wants to wreslte a woman i would do it dam the rock is hot

    Switching to 300 lb women? Guess it will be Rock vs. Kharma at Wrestlemania 30 then.

      The funny thing is, that would be a whole lot more entertaining, and an overall better wrestling match than either of the Roch VS Cena matches.

    If Morgan Freeman narrates/commentates a PPV I will buy it even if the only match is David Otunga vs Khali.
