Replying to this The Rock said, “The problem was, which a lot of people don’t know, in a wrestling match, I tore the top of my quad off my pelvis. It went bang in a wrestling match. And then what that did, that caused a chain reaction and it tore my abdomen wall. So then I had to do a triple hernia emergency surgery…so, they’re not, like, perfect abs.”

Johnson said that an abdominal operation changed the structure of his abs. Additionally, he also remarked that Instagram fitness models have incredible six-pack abs. Since his abs aren’t perfect, he only has five and a half packs.
