The Rock Tastes His Own Blood After Suffering a Cut During Training

The Rock works through a cut during training.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is no stranger to working hard in the gym. The actor and WWE star has constantly pushed himself in training to build a truly impressive physique.

With so many projects on his plate like the Athleticon, purchasing the XFL, and staring in numerous film and TV projects, you have to wonder when The Rock has the time to do any training at all. Yet, his home gym, what he likes to call his own Iron Paradise, has provided him the ability to do some hard training.


Unfortunately mishaps can occur when pushing yourself hard. Recently The Rock learned that the hard way after suffering a cut during a session. Yet despite drawing blood from the cut, The Rock seemed unfazed. He even went so far as to taste his own blood.

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.

What do you think of The Rock tasting his own blood in training?
