Johnson gets emergency procedure for three tears in his hernia as the results of WrestleMania match against John Cena, causing him to miss his movie premiere.


Dwayne Johnson, or The Rock, underwent emergency surgery for three tears in his hernia. The surgery was carried out on Monday, April 22. Johnson's representative told E! News that the surgery forced Johnson to miss the Los Angeles premiere of his new movie with Mark Wahlberg, "Pain and Gain".

Johnson took to Twitter on Tuesday, April 23, to inform fans that he was recovering well. "Surgery a success! Dr repaired 3 hernial tears (fun pain). Superman is on the mend.. #WeFallWeRise," he tweeted. He attached a picture of him showing off his biceps in a Superman costume on his hospital bed along with the post. Johnson's publicist Alan Nierob told Associated Press that Johnson had been discharged from hospital and now he is recovering at home.

Director Michael Bay wished Johnson speedy recovery at "Pain and Gain" premiere. "Dwayne's hurt tonight. He was pushing it too hard. [He] needs to grow up and stop wrestling 300-pound men," the director said.

Previously, Johnson announced via his Twitter account that he got injured after having a wrestling match against John Cena earlier this month. "In the middle of last night's Wrestlemania match, I tore my abdomen & abductor muscles off the bone. Just part of the job," Johnson wrote on Monday, April 8. He added, "But as we know, it's all about #JustBringIt. WWE Universe, THANK YOU for all the love & well wishes. Means everything to me. #LeaveItAllInTheRing."

The "Fast Five" actor wrote again on Sunday, April 21 to say that he had to undergo surgery. "Saw my Dr who had to push my intenseness back thru the tear in my abdomen. Kinda romantic. Surgery is next week. #BringItOn," he tweeted.
