ROCK SURGERY GETTING LOTS OF ATTENTION, HOLLYWOOD DIRECTOR SAYS JOHNSON NEEDS TO 'GROW UP'

By Mike Johnson on 2013-04-24 09:31:33
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's surgery to repair several tears in his intestines and a hernia led to him missing the premiere of his new film "Pain and Gain".

That in return, led to a lot of media attention on Johnson's surgery, with some referring to it as emergency surgery. That gives the impression that Johnson was rushed into an emergency room, but the reality is that it was a scheduled procedure after Johnson initially was not going to have surgery and instead rehab the injury.

Meanwhile, "Pain and Gain" Director Michael Bay suggested that Johnson's WWE career needed to end, commenting to E! that The Rock, "...was pushing it too hard....needs to grow up and stop wrestling 300-pound men."

Johnson is already home recovering. As we've noted here on the site, there is some concern within WWE that Johnson may have wrestled his last bout, something Johnson conceded could have been a possibility in an interview promoting his "Hero" reality series.
