Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock was unable to make the Los Angeles premiere of his new movie Pain & Gain on Monday, after receiving an emergency operation for three hernial tears. The actor and wrestler is doing fine now after a successful operation, though it's unlikely he will return to the promotional rounds for Michael Bay's movie, also starring Mark Wahlberg.

"Surgery a success! Dr repaired 3 hernial tears (fun pain). Superman is on the mend.. #WeFallWeRise," Johnso tweeted on Tuesday with a photo of himself in a hospital bed, flexing in a Superman T-shirt. His publicist Alan Nierob told the Associated Press that he is now recovering at home. 

The injury occurred when Johnson wrestled John Cena at Wrestlemania 29 on April 7, losing his championship title. "In the middle of last night's Wrestlemania match I tore my abdomen & abductor muscles off the bone. Just part of the job," he wrote April 8, adding, "But as we know... It's all about #JustBringIt. WWE Universe, THANK YOU for all the love & well wishes. Means everything to me. #LeaveItAllInTheRing."

As for the specifics of the surgery, Johnson announced that the doctor had to "push my intestines back thru the tear in my abdomen. Kinda romantic." The actor plays a workout obsessed body builder in Pain & Gain, though director Michael Bay gave his apologies for the Rock's absence on the red carpet. "Dwayne's hurt tonight.He was pushing it too hard. [He] needs to grow up and stop wrestling 300-pound men," he told the Los Angeles Ties.

Pain & Gain hits theaters in the U.S. on Friday April 26, 2013.
