No, it wasn’t a scene from any of his hard-hitting action movies, but rather from a real life scuffle that broke out with a fellow teammate while playing football at the University of Miami. Johnson, shared the eye-opening story in his recent Sports Illustrated interview, where he admitted to trying to pull a man’s tongue out of his mouth with his bare hands.
The Rock goes on to explain how he lost it after continuously getting razzed from teammate Kevin Patrick about about his lack of playing time. During the SI interview, Johnson said, “It was like a movie fight. The desk got turned over, stuff was flying all over the place. We spilled out onto the weight room floor, still going at it. He wouldn’t stop talking, so I decided to pull his tongue out. I stuffed my big ol’ hand into his mouth, and I had a couple of fingers around his tongue, but it was so damn slippery! I was quite serious about pulling it out, but I couldn’t quite get a hold of it. Eventually I gave up, the fight ended, and two minutes later we were hugging each other. It was so dumb.”
Glad it all worked out and everyone was able to keep their body parts intact. In the future, we suggest anyone stupid enough to piss off DJ, keep their thoughts to themselves and just bite their tongue…if they want to keep it.
