The Rock Hints At Potential In-Ring Return

The Rock making an entrance in WWE.

WWE legend and Hollywood icon The Rock has responded to recent rumours that he may be returning to the squared circle.

The Rock’s situation has been one of the most talked-about topics in WWE in recent months. Despite being one of the most beloved Superstars of all time, The Great One hasn’t competed in a WWE ring since his brief match with Erick Rowan at WrestleMania 32 in 2016.

In 2013, he tore his abdominal adductor tendons off his pelvis in a match against John Cena at WrestleMania 29, when he tore his abdominal adductor tendons off his pelvis. This is said to have caused a significant delay in the production of his next film, Hercules, at a significant financial loss to the studio.

Survivor Series 2021 will mark the 25th anniversary of The Rock’s WWE debut at Madison Square Garden. This has sparked speculation that the former WWE Champion will attend the event, possibly setting up a bout with Roman Reigns. It was then confirmed that The People’s Champion would be filming the second season of Young Rock in Australia at the time of the event.

Despite this, there is still talk that The Rock will meet Reigns at WrestleMania 39 in Los Angeles.

The Rock was questioned by comicbook.com whether he would defend a championship if he were to steal it from Roman Reigns while promoting his new film Red Notice, which also stars Wrexham FC owner Ryan Reynolds. While a title run might be beyond The Great One, Rock stated that one more bout isn’t completely out of the question:

“I don’t know if I have another title run, considering I’m the People’s Champion, but I don’t know if it’s another title run,”

“I think possibly, you know, there might be another match down the road. It would have to make sense.”

Following on, the third-generation Superstar praised Roman Reigns for his current performances, and expressed his pride in the WWE Universal Champion:

“It seems like Roman, you know, I’m very close with Roman obviously, and we talk about this all the time, and I continue to encourage him to keep doing your thing, keep sharpening those skills,” Johnson said. “I think he’s doing a great job with his promo, his execution, his in-ring work. It all continues to improve and grow.”

“And that’s always the best part, I think, about that world of professional wrestling is that when someone gets anointed and given the ball to run, they either score a touchdown with it or they don’t. But then some, not only score a touchdown with it, but then they begin to change the way the game is played.”

“And in Roman’s case, he’s slowly doing that, and you could start to read the tea leaves. And again, I’m very, very proud of him. I like everything that he’s doing. I like everything that the Usos are doing. I like what they’re doing together, and we’ll see down the road.”
