The Rock Provides Gruesome Injury Update [Photo]

The Rock WWE

The Rock has been showing off a nasty-looking elbow injury.

After WrestleMania 40, The Rock headed back to the safety of Hollywood, away from physical danger and the chance of injury. Well, at least that’s the theory.

The Great One is currently working on a new movie, The Smashing Machine, based on the life and career of UFC legend Mark Kerr. Not one to do things in half measures, the star has thrown himself into MMA training for the film’s several fight scenes. However, that gung-ho approach has come at a cost.

In a recent post on social media, The Rock revealed he’d suffered an elbow injury, commenting that he was pretty banged up. Although he was going to work through a bottle of his signature Teremana tequila to help ease the pain.

The Rock Is On The Mend

In a new update on Instagram, The Rock confirmed there’s no extensive tissue damage in his elbow, just a ruptured bursa sac that will eventually heal.

Elbow got kissed by the boo boo monster 👹 💪🏾
No extensive tissue damage.
Ruptured bursa sac that will eventually heal.
I’ve had much worse, and as always let pain – and tequila – be the guide 😈
Back to work.
(thank you all for the love and healing/medicine recommendations ❤️‍🩹 Im good 👍🏾)

Although there’s no word on when he’ll be back with WWE, The Rock is expected to face Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania 41. The megastar pinned Rhodes on night one of WrestleMania 40 and the pair then came face to face on Raw.
