Moana fans, look away now.
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, known for playing the mythological Polynesian trickster Maui in Disney Pixar’s smash-hit, has spoken out about a fight scene in the upcoming Fast & Furious spin-off Hobbs & Shaw that was deemed too violent for inclusion in the film’s final cut.
The scene, which has been edited out of the movie, involved Johnson’s character biting an opponent’s eye out and spitting it onto the dirt.
The former WWE wrestler, who is filming Hobbs & Shaw in Samoa, shared a behind the scenes clip on Instagram. “This bludgeoning will be in the film,” he said, “but unfortunately the scene where I bite the bad guy’s eye out and spit it on the dirt didn’t make it.”

A lil’ behind the scenes taste of the HOBBS & SHAW savagery that takes place in SAMOA. This bludgeoning will be in the film, but unfortunately the scene where I bite the bad guy’s eye out and spit it on the dirt didn’t make it. MPAA ratings board forbid us to show it because it was too violent. True story. Plus, anytime you see a Samoan in a fight wearing their Lava Lava (traditional fabric I’m wearing around my waist) you know the other person is getting fucked up 🤣 HOBBS & SHAW AUGUST 2ND 🌎 #SamoanSmackdown Much love and respect to my stuntman brother @rosskohnstam who commits with no pads, takes my spine buster and smacks his head on the earth like a fucking champ.
“MPAA ratings board forbid us to show it because it was too violent,” he added. The film is aiming for a PG-13 certificate.
What can he say except: you’re welcome?
