On November 17, 1996, The Rock made his WWE debut and took the world of professional wrestling by storm. He quickly rose to become one of the most popular wrestlers in WWE history. In this article, we will take a look back at The Rock’s WWE debut and discuss some of the highlights from that night.

The Rock WWE debut took place on November 17th 1996, at the WWE Survivor Series event. He made an immediate impact on the WWE landscape and quickly rose to become one of the most popular wrestlers in WWE history.

The Rock’s charisma and natural ability to entertain fans made him a fan favourite, but only after a dismal run as Rocky Maivia, which saw the fans boo him mercilessly.

However, The Rock turned things around and became one of WWE’s biggest stars. He won the WWE Championship on numerous occasions and even headlined WrestleMania on multiple occasions. His matches against Hollywood Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and John Cena are considered some of the best in WWE history.
