Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Interview: WWE Wrestlemania 29, John Cena, Injuries


In a recent interview, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson had some interesting insight, here are some highlights:

on his Wrestlemania 29 match vs John Cena:
I had about 25 minutes left of a 50-minute match… The referee asked me, ‘Should we call it off?’ I knew something was wrong but continued to go. I reached down into my trunks to make sure no bones were sticking out [laughs]. I mean, it was WrestleMania, and we had an attendance record of like 80,000 people. I think I was running on adrenaline.

on injuries suffered in that match:
It’s always fun when the doctor comes out looking all serious. He starts shaking his head and goes, ‘I don’t know how you’re walking.’ To get nice and graphic with you, my leg was basically dangling off of my body

on shooting for 8 months in Budapest:
That was really hard; it was a long time… But the last thing I wanted to do was hold up filming
