The Rock Suffers Injury While Filming 'The Smashing Machine’

The Rock has picked up an injury during filming of ‘The Smashing Machine’

The Rock hasn’t been seen on WWE TV since the Raw after WrestleMania XL, with Rock undergoing production on ‘The Smashing Machine’ - a movie based on the life of MMA legend Mark Kerr.

Rock is playing Kerr in the A24 production, and as revealed on a post on his official Instagram account, ‘The Great One’ has picked up an elbow injury during filming:

“As you guys know, I’m filming a movie called ‘The Smashing Machine.’ And anytime your film is called ‘The Smashing Machine,’ well, you’re kind of going to get smashed up,” Johnson said. “Look at that sucker right there. It looks like I have a cantaloupe in the bottom of my elbow. I got banged up pretty good today in our scenes. And then there might be some soft tissue damage in there. That’s a lot of fluid. We’ll see. I got to get it out of there first before I get any kind of any MRI.”

Production of the movie began in May 2024 and was initially set to wrap in August, how much of a delay to filming Rock’s injury will cause is as yet unknown.
