It turns out The Rock did indeed suffer a severe injury in his match against John Cena in the main event of WrestleMania 29 last night (Sun., April 7, 2013) at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. According to the man himself on Twitter, and this is incredible:
In the middle of last nights Wrestlemania match I tore my abdomen & adductor muscles off the bone. Just part of the job. But as we know..— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) April 8, 2013
Yeah, that's unbelievable.
That's also the explanation for why he's not at tonight's episode of Monday Night Raw at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, which reportedly caused a panic with WWE officials who were forced to rewrite the most important show of the year on just a few hours notice.
This doesn't give us the full story but it does clear up quite a few things.
Stay tuned for further details as they become available, Cagesiders.
