Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson recently commented on potentially stepping back into the ring for the WWE.
The Rock spoke with Cathy Kelley of WWE.com earlier this week on the red carpet in New York City for the premiere of his latest movie, “Skyscraper.” In this interview, she asked if he plans on getting back in the ring for WWE.
The former WWE Champion stated that he can’t wait to get back into a WWE ring and that everybody always asks him what’s it like being in a WWE ring. This is when he noted that he would explain to them that there’s nothing like being inside of a WWE ring. You can watch the brief interview here:
It seems that everyone wants to see “The Great One” make an appearance at the biggest event of the year for the WWE, WrestleMania, to the point that every year there is speculation on whether he will appear at the show.
He hasn’t wrestled since WrestleMania 29 against John Cena for the WWE Title but did have technically a match with Erick Rowan at WrestleMania 32 but it was very brief. He returned to WWE part-time from 2011–13 and continues to make sporadic appearances for the company.
2019 won’t be any different as WrestleMania 35 is slated to be held on Sunday, April 7 in East Rutherford, NJ at MetLife Stadium. With this being the most successful and longest-running professional wrestling event in history, it’s a safe bet that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon will at the least contract Rock to see if he wants to make an appearance.
What are your thoughts on The Rock’s comments? Do you think that he’ll wrestle in a WWE ring in the near future?
