For Johnson, that meant responding to “what’s wrong with the rock’s abs.” (Find that a part of the dialog at 8:12 within the video abovr.)
While each Johnson and Blunt appeared shocked to see the query — they agreed it was “f***ed up” — Johnson had a really particular reply.

The wrongdoer is his wrestling previous.
“But the problem was, which a lot of people don’t know [is that] I tore in a wrestling match,” he mentioned. “I tore the top of my quad off my pelvis… and what that did, it caused a chain reaction and it tore my abdomen wall. So then… I had to do a triple hernia emergency surgery. I had a tear, tear and a tear. So, they’re not like perfect abs!”
Blunt joked, “You know what, it’s not his fault, guys… what’s wrong with your abs? Where are your abs, you know?”
Then Johnson famous precisely what went down: “It’s called a wrestling match for 45 minutes, and the top of my quad popped out of my pelvis. And my abductor popped off my pelvis.”
As Bleacher Report famous in April 2013, the damage occurred throughout a match with John Cena at WrestleMania 29.
