The Rock(Dwayne Johnson) is a top name whether it is in pro-wrestling or Hollywood. He is currently enjoying his time with his acting career and has been away from WWE for quite some time now. Fans have been waiting for him to appear in WWE down the road.
The Rock could wrestle again in WWE?
In an interview with TV Insider, former WWE creative writer and executive producer of The Rock’s TV series Young Rock, Brian Gewirtz was asked about ‘The Great One’ and the potential of an in-ring return shortly.
The former WWE Champion hasn’t wrestled for WWE since WrestleMania 29 in 2013, although it is rumored WWE wants him for a match with Roman Reigns at a future WrestleMania. If he is returning, Gewirtz isn’t aware and pointed out all the factors that would go into a return to wrestling for The Rock. Here is what he said:
“I sometimes learn of Dwayne’s wrestling aspirations the way everyone else does: through his social media posts,” Gewirtz said. “There are so many factors that go into Dwayne’s appearance in terms of a WWE ring. Between his movie schedule and health. Infamously at WrestleMania against John Cena, it resulted in some pretty horrific injuries that required surgery and the delaying of the Hercules movie at the time.”
“I also know this is a passion and business he was born into and born with. That never truly goes away. I don’t know if you’ve seen the guy lately, but he is in pretty good shape. I think he could probably do it if push came to shove. I think it comes down to what he wants to do and when. It comes down to what Dwayne wants to do. I’m sure WWE would be more than happy to have him.”
WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns is set to collide with WWE Champion Brock Lesnar at this year’s WrestleMania. Who knows we might end up witnessing a possible match between Reigns and The Rock next year.
