WWE legend The Rock tastes his own BLOOD after hitting himself in face with a chain in workout accident


WWE legend Dwayne ’The Rock’ Johnson was left a bloody mess as he pumped iron on Monday.

And the 48-year-old Hollywood mega-star took to Instagram to show off his war wound after cutting his face with a bulky chain while exercising.

Going live on his social media channel, the ‘Most Electrifying Man in Sport Entertainment’ said: “Sometimes, well often times, things get intense here in the iron paradise.

“But we ain't playing tiddlywinks and we ain't reciting nursery rhymes. You get lumped up every once in a while and things happen.”

Johnson then took his hand and swiped his fingers across the cut and tasted his own blood, declaring that it tasted ‘good’.

The former WWE world champion captioned the video with: “We ain’t playin’ tiddlywinks and we ain’t reciting nursery rhymes - it’s called the #ironparadise for a reason and things get extremely intense.

“Threw around my 50lb chains for a drop set - I got lumped up and need stitches.

“Taste your blood, keep training and stitch up later - rules of the house.

“And I can confirm my blood tastes like Teremana, calluses and BlaMoan (black and samoan) Hot Sauce.

“Have a productive week, my friends - keep it light and a lil’ fun, but get after it like a MF. #teamchaingang #blamoanhotsauce.”

The Great One became one of the most recognisable faces on the planet during the WWE Attitude Era days in the 1990s.

Then followed a successful switch to the silver screen that led to him becoming the highest-earning actor in Hollywood.

He last competed in a six-second impromptu WWE match against Erick Rowan at WrestleMania 32 in what looked likely to be his last-ever bout.

Johnson announced that he had quietly retired from wrestling last summer but has been recently linked with a return to face family member Roman Reigns.
