Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson was unable to attend the Hollywood premiere of his new movie Pain and Gain, on Monday, because he underwent abdominal surgery, reports E! News.
“Saw my Dr who had to push my intestines back thru the tear in my abdomen. Kinda romantic,” he tweeted Sunday. “Surgery is next week. #BringItOn.”
The 40-year-old pro-wrestler-turned-movie star recently announced his return to the ring. Earlier this month he lost in a title match against John Cena at Wrestlemania in 29. ‘The Rock’ had an emergency operation for three hernial tears he suffered during the match.
“Surgery a success! Dr repaired 3 hernial tears (fun pain). Superman is on the mend.. #WeFallWeRise,” Johnson tweeted Tuesday with a photo of himself in a hospital bed, flexing in a Superman T-shirt.
As the saying goes, no pain no gain. Check out Johnson’s new flick “Pain and Gain” in theaters on Friday, April 26.
