– Former WWE Champion Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has issued an update on his claim of an abdominal tear injury mid-way through his match with John Cena at WrestleMania.
Johnson wrote on Twitter Wednesday afternoon, “Injury update: Physical therapy starts tomorrow. Hardcore training starts today. Thank U guys for the love. 5 weeks out..#RoadToHercules.”
Johnson had previously indicated on Twitter that he believes he suffered the injury while delivering the Rock Bottom to Cena during the bout. Last Saturday, Johnson revealed that he and his physician had elected to not re-attach tendons to his pelvis as part of the rehabilitation process. “They’ll just scar up,” he noted.
– According to the Orlando Sentinal, WWE is scheduled to make an announcement tomorrow at 11:30 a.m. in Orlando, Florida, regarding a “new developmental.” State Gov. Rick Scott, Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs, WWE Executive Vice President, Talent and Live Events Paul Levesque (a/k/a Triple H) and Garry Jones, president of Full Sail University, are expected to attend the conference.
WWE representatives would not provide any additional details to the publication. The Sentinal notes that “several wrestling-insider websites” have speculated that the WWE will open a training facility.
