I was pretty relieved to see this tweet from The Rock today about his emergency hernia surgery.
‘Surgery a success! Dr repaired 3 hernial tears (fun pain). Superman is on the mend.. #WeFallWeRise’
Not because I’m happy he was rushed to hospital but when he had to pull out of the Pain & Gain premiere in Hollywood on Monday, there was some confusion as to what exactly was wrong with him.
I’m not sure where the message got lost in translation but what most of the press took away from the explanation was that The Rock had injured his penis!
While three hernial tears sounds pretty awful, it seems better than the alternative. I was imagining The Rock having to wear something like the cast Schmidt donned in New Girl when he broke his penis. Or who can forget the Grey’s Anatomy episode when McSteamy had a similar injury.
I’m happy to hear The Rock didn’t suffer the same fate, no one wants to see him have to wear this ….
