Dwayne Johnson's Emergency Operation Didn't Harm The Wrestler's Good Spirits

Everyone breathe easy, Dwayne Johnson is recovering after his hernia surgery. The wrestling star was rushed to hospital on Monday and had an emergency operation, but The Rock isn’t one to mope at all. He suffered three hernial tears while wrestling John Cena earlier this month. The debate over the “realness” of wrestling is still ongoing, but Johnson is living proof that you can get some pretty real injuries doing it.

Because of the emergency, Mr Johnson had to miss the premiere of his latest flick – the pretty aptly titled, given the circumstances, Pain & Gain. The flick co-stars Mark Wahlberg and opens across theatres this Friday. Director Michael Bay chided the wrestler for risking his health with the sport. But it looks like The Rock’s wellbeing is no longer in danger and neither is his good mood, as he tweeted a picture of himself in the hospital, flexing in his Superman T-shirt, accompanied by the caption: "Surgery a success! Dr repaired 3 hernial tears (fun pain). Superman is on the mend.. #WeFallWeRise."

A bit over-confident perhaps, but that’s the recovery spirit none the less. Johnson’s publicist, Alan Nierob, revealed for The Associated press that The Rock is now anchored at home, recovering. We’re sure that with Johnson’s rock solid good spirit, the recovery will be a breeze.
