Although it would seem his injuries were severe enough to warrant extensive care, The Rock, who says he suffered a torn abdomen and abductor muscles on top of a hernia during his match with John Cena at WrestleMania 29 on April 7, 2013, in East Rutherford, New Jersey, is electing not to get surgery.
From his Twitter:
Injury update: Dr's & I elected not to reattach tendons to my pelvis. They'll just scar up. Now I prep to shoot HERCULES #TheDemiGOD— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) April 13, 2013
I'm certainly no medical expert but that sounds utterly insane to me. On top of not actually getting surgery to repair the damage that has been done to his body, "The Brahma Bull" is already back to training. That has led to all the obvious questions and speculation on how severe the injury really is and if it's not that bad, then why couldn't he be at Monday Night Raw this past week to shoot the angle with Brock Lesnar?
After all, working hurt is part of the job.
The obvious conclusion is that Rock is a movie star before he's a pro wrestler and this incident may very well have completely flip flopped his priorities. He has yet to comment on what his future in pro wrestling will be and it's probably safe to assume he won't be doing so any time soon.
And even when he does, it may not be good news for all you Rock marks out there.
