The Rock is taking this "no pain, no gain" thing to heart.

Dwayne Johnson announced he's set to undergo surgery next week for an abdominal tear.

"Saw my Dr who had to push my intestines back thru the tear in my abdomen. Kinda romantic," the pro wrestler turned movie star tweeted on Sunday. "Surgery is next week. #BringItOn."

VIDEO: Michael Bay talks Dwayne Johnson's baby oil routine

As it happened, Johnson was MIA for last night's Hollywood premiere of his new action flick, the Michael Bay-directed "Pain & Gain" costarring Mark Wahlberg.

A rep for the 40-year-old thesp was unavailable for comment.

But news of the operation comes after Johnson got back in the ring earlier this month to take on rival John Cena at Wrestlemania 29, a title match he subsequently lost.

"Pain & Gain" hits theaters this Friday.
