Rock on a roll? It’s safe to say that the Rock is one of the biggest stars in all of entertainment with wrestling just being a small part of the deal. However, wrestling was where the whole thing started. There are some long periods where Rock isn’t around, but every now and then he’ll pop up again. The idea of him wrestling seems like a lost cause, but that’s never stopped WWE before.
According to Joe Peisich on the Barn Burner Fired Up podcast, WWE is trying to have The Rock appear on three major shows in the upcoming months. The plan would be for Rock to appear at the 1000th episode of SmackDown Live on October 16, the Royal Rumble and then WrestleMania 35 in April. Rock last wrestled for the company at WrestleMania 32 in a six second win over Erick Rowan. There is no word on Rock’s level of interest or availability in a WWE return.
Remember this one?
Opinion: Well, it would be a huge deal and there have been rumors over the last few months, but I’m not sure if it’s actually going to happen. There is the chance that this is going to happen and I can completely imagine Rock putting Reigns over to end WrestleMania 35, even if the fans aren’t likely to be thrilled with the concept. That’s a heck of a path there and I’d be interested to see it happen.
