Dwayne Johnson’s financial situation was affected because of his injuries

There was a time when John Cena called out Dwayne Johnson for leaving WWE and the latter decided to join Hollywood. He then appeared at Wrestlemania XXVIII and 29 and managed to defeat John Cena in the first match. However, Cena defeated Johnson in 29 and Johnson suffered broken tendons and hernia tears.


Johnson also spoke about his injuries, saying that he tore his abductor tendon alongside his rectus tendon and pelvis. He added, “And then I found out that I had three wonderful hernia tears. There’s a lot of fun swelling in the ‘cash and prizes’ area for the first week and a half. Those were sexy times…It’s a lot of fun pain to go through.”

Following the injuries, the look of his abs completely changed. Johnson once revealed that he does not have a six-pack or eight-pack and instead, he has a five-and-a-half or four-and-a-half pack.
