We’re gonna have times in our lives where we get fucked up and knocked down. It’s a very defining moment when that time comes because you can either say, “I’m done”... or you can fight thru your pain - physical or emotional - get back up and finish the job.
We had a scheduled 45min WrestleMania match (including our entrances and post match celebration) and at 15min mark of my match against John Cena, for the @wwe
Championship - I ripped my quadricep and my adductor tendons off my pelvis.
Laying on the mat, I also had no idea that my tendons torn off my pelvis, caused a wicked chain reaction of three immediate hernia tears throughout my abdomen which would eventually lead to emergency surgery.
I need tequila.
I pushed thru and continued the match for another 20+ minutes.
We all have these moments...
Pain is temporary, but finishing the job is forever.
Good to see this message had a real impact on the team. My guy @kuz#GeniusTalks#LAKERS#PushThruPain
