The Rock WWE: Could he return to the company?

Last updated

Sure-fire WWE Hall of Famer The Rock has not been active in the ring for some time, but one of his colleagues believes that we could see him back.

Speaking to TV Insider, former WWE creative writer and executive producer of The Rock’s TV series Young Rock, Brian Gewirtz, spoke about The Great One.

“I sometimes learn of Dwayne’s wrestling aspirations the way everyone else does: through his social media posts,” Gewirtz began.

“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” the former WWE writer noted.

‘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” Gewirtz concluded.

The Rock vs Roman Reigns

Of course, the big match that WWE wants to put together is The Rock vs Roman Reigns. It was previously rumoured that the company were looking at WrestleMania 39 as a destination for the bout.

Whilst that is not out of the question, it is unlikely at this point. Still, having Dwayne Johnson vs Reigns would easily be the biggest match in quite some time.
