According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter , The Rock could return at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, next year for WrestleMania 35. The Rock has not competed for WWE since beating Erick Rowan in an impromptu match at WrestleMania 32 in 2016.
The Rock spoke to WWE interviewer Cathy Kelly at the premier for his new movie Skyscraper last week and said the following regarding his desire to return to WWE:
“I can’t wait to get back to a WWE ring. People always ask me, ‘What’s it like being in a WWE ring?’ I always tell them there’s nothing like it. There’s nothing like inside a WWE ring because there’s a certain live crowd acumen that is second to none. That was always and will always be the best part of my job when it comes to wrestling. Whether I’m wresting a match or just giving a promo. That connection with the audience, there’s nothing like it.”
Looks like the Rock keeps on churning out some dud movies. Of course he’ll go back to the ring every so often to keep his real fan base happy.
