The Rock Responds To “Pain & Gain” Director Michael Bay Telling Him To “Grow Up”

As reported earlier, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was forced to miss Monday night’s Los Angeles premiere of his latest film, Pain & Gain, due to an emergency hernia operation earlier in the day. Speaking to E! Online on the red carpet, movie director Michael Bay suggested the injury stemmed from Johnson’s wrestling exploits.

“He was pushing it too hard,” Bay said. “[He] needs to grow up and stop wrestling 300-pound men.”

Johnson responded to Bay’s remark via Twitter this afternoon, writing, “Funny sh*t! Michael Bay joked I should stop wrestling 300lb men. I agree – I’ll switch to women. #ALLPainNOGain.”

    A great majority of the American public has known of the Rock for more than a decade. Before he was in the movies The Rock was mentioned nearly as much as Stone Cold Steve Austin. I would be astounded if in 2-3 years no one knew who Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was… Phase? He’s not Justin Bieber, friend.

    “He needs to grow up and stop wrestling 300-pound men.”

    Way to slap every wrestler in the face with that statement. Also, Cena is 250 and Punk is 220. Not exactly 300 pounds. Michael Bay sounds like a jerk.

    It’s funny because The Rock is the one getting great reviews on this film. So many people talking about him being the standout performance in Michael Bay’s film and now he wants to talk shit.

    Hey Bay, so I’m pretty sure we all agree you’re a hack director and The Rock is a good actor that basically just made your new movie. Go to hell?

    Enough to injure himself every other match, apparently -__-
