From HuffPost:

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson underwent abdominal surgery Monday after sustaining injuries from a wrestling match earlier this month. The “Pain & Gain” movie star suffered a torn abdomen and abductor muscles, he said, when defending his WWE Champion title in an April 7 match against contender John Cena. Cena won the match that took place at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium in front of a crowd of nearly 80,000.

The 40-year-old star announced the news on his Twitter page Sunday:

“Saw my Dr who had to push my intenseness back thru the tear in my abdomen. Kinda romantic. Surgery is next week. #BringItOn,” he wrote.

Johnson’s rep confirmed to E! News that the star had undergone an emergency hernia operation last night that caused him to miss the Los Angeles premiere of his new film. Director Michael Bay also wished him well from the red carpet: “Dwayne’s hurt tonight. He was pushing it too hard. [He] needs to grow up and stop wrestling 300-pound men.”
