The Rock tore his abdomen and adductor muscles off the bone in his WWE title match against John Cena at Wrestlemania 29 on Sunday. The former WWE Champion wrote the following on Twitter:
A panic broke out backstage at WWE Raw Monday afternoon at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey when The Rock was nowhere to be found. Stories began circulating with speculation regarding his absence. Vince McMahon ordered the show to be rewritten as Rock was scheduled to have a role on the original broadcast.
The word later in the evening was Rock suffered an injury in his match against John Cena and returned home to have it examined. This latest information confirms that story as The Rock is off this week's broadcast with a torn abdomen.
