The Rock: Huge rumors on his WWE return date

Last updated

WWE and Hollywood megastar The Rock could be making an absolutely massive return to the company sooner than expected.

There has been a lot of talk with regards to how Dwayne Johnson could be making his return for a match at WrestleMania 39 against Roman Reigns.

From what we’ve heard from sources, The Great One is being considered as a secret entrant in the WWE Royal Rumble match in 2023.

“Potentially in the Rumble match I’m hearing, surprise number 30 or number 40, [that’s] if they do the 40-person Rumble that is currently being discussed” is what we were told.

The Rock WWE Return

We’ve already heard reports that Triple H is looking to make his first Rumble event massive, and there have also been rumors about a potential return to the 40-man Rumble format.

Whilst it’s not anywhere near confirmed, having The Rock return as part of the Royal Rumble event would certainly be a massive move from the company.

Plans can of course change between now and January, and the company may opt to simply have The Great One make an advertised appearance rather than be a secret entrant in the match.

Either way, the 2023 Royal Rumble event should be extremely notable as the company heads towards WrestleMania 39.
