Well, for those of you who were unaware, The Rock went under the knife Tuesday morning.

The surgery was due to injuries he sustained during his WrestleMania 29 match against John Cena.

Initially "The Great One" revealed he would not be getting surgery and would be following through with his upcoming movie production schedule.

However, that all changed on Sunday when he posted on Twitter that surgery was necessary.

The good news is that his surgery was a success. In fact he took to Twitter on Tuesday afternoon to reveal a post-surgery picture.

Overall, I got to say that The Rock looks to be in great shape and ready for to start filming. However, he will obviously need to take some time to heal from this surgery before he can start shooting any scenes—especially physical ones.

Now that the surgery is behind him, one has to wonder where he stands with the WWE and if he will be returning to the ring once his Hollywood schedule clears up. The fact is The Rock has truly given fans more than most expected over the past three years.

That being said, I think it's safe to say that if he decided to walk away, no one would fault him. Let's face it; he is in the prime of his film-making career and it would be insane for him to continue to try and balance the two.

Especially considering that potential injuries that could conflict with movie productions or WWE pay-per-view obligations.

All in all, if the WWE wants to retain The Rock, they should sign him to a "Legends" deal and have him do appearances at their "Big Four" pay-per-view events. This would be beneficial for both sides and give him a break from having an in-ring presence.

However, as we all know the world of wrestling is an odd one. So who knows what the future has in store for The Rock and the WWE?
