The Rock, Twitter


Could it be that undergoing emergency hernia surgery left Dwayne Johnson with even more energy than usual?

The erstwhile Rock showed that it's impossible to keep his bod of steel down for long, posting a twitpic of himself that was taken from his hospital bed in which he's wearing a triumphant look and doing his best to burst, Hulk-like, out of his Superman T-shirt.

"Surgery a success! Dr repaired 3 hernial tears (fun pain). Superman is on the mend.. #WeFallWeRise," Johnson tweeted.

The action star's rep told E! News that he is now back home after undergoing the operation last night, unexpected drama that forced him to miss the Los Angeles premiere of his latest film, Pain & Gain.

Director Michael Bay suggested on the red carpet that the injury stemmed from Johnson's other job.

"He was pushing it too hard," Bay told E! News. "[He] needs to grow up and stop wrestling 300-pound men.
