The injury occurred in 2014 during the WWE championship at WrestleMania 29, where he went up against John Cena. He was initially against receiving surgery but things went wrong two days later. “I came in for a checkup and pulled my pants down, and the doctor goes, ‘Oh! That’s a hernia,‘” Johnson told The Hollywood Reporter. “Your abdominal wall gets weak and your organs push through.

The doctor said, ‘You need to lie down,‘ and slowly starts to push my intestines back into my stomach. He said, ‘I would really recommend surgery,'” the actor added.
