Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson suffers face injury after workout
The Rock is not unbreakable.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson posted a video on Instagram on Monday that revealed he suffered an injury while working out at his home gym, dubbed the “Iron Paradise.”
“Threw around my 50lb chains ⛓ for a drop set – I got lumped up and need stitches,” he wrote in the caption with a crying, laughing emoji. “Taste your blood, keep training and stitch up later – rules of the house.”
In the clip, Johnson, 48, did indeed lick his blood off the cut on his face, and said after a taste, “That’s good. That’s real good.”
“Sometimes, well often times, things get intense here in the ‘Iron Paradise,’ but we ain’t playing tiddlywinks and we ain’t reciting nursery rhymes,” he added in the video. “You get lumped up every once in a while and things happen.”
The “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” star appears to be in good shape after a brief battle with COVID-19.
He said in September, “This has been one of the most challenging and difficult things we have ever had to endure as a family. We’re on the other end of it, we’re on the other side. We’re no longer contagious, and we are — thank God — we are healthy.”
