As previously noted here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com, director Michael Bay had some fun at The Rock’s expense by jokingly saying the former WWE Champion needs to “grow up” and stop wrestling while on the red carpet at the premiere for “Pain and Gain” in Los Angeles on Tuesday night. Rock had to miss the premiere due to emergency hernial surgery related to injuries suffered at Wrestlemania 29.
Video of Michael’s comments were featured on Entertainment Tonight and can be seen at this link or embedded in the video below:

Some publications unfairly took the comments out of context, playing the comments like Bay made a snide comment about The Rock or pro wrestling in general.
Rock made reference to the comments on Twitter and Michael Bay issued a statement.
