The Rock suffers elbow injury filming The Smashing Machine

Posting a video on Instagram, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson revealed that he suffered an elbow injury during the filming of The Smashing Machine and needs to rest it up and for the fluid to go away before he can undergo an MRI.

“I got banged up pretty good today in our scenes,” Rock said, adding that when you’re filming a movie with a title called The Smashing Machine, well, things can go sideways.

“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,” he explained.

It’s unclear if the injury will delay filming certain scenes for the movie.

The Rock avoided injury throughout his run on WWE television earlier this year, culminating with a match at WrestleMania.
