Rumors are now circulating that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson could be returning to WWE, although the wrestler turned actor is yet to confirm any details.
WWE fans have speculated that The Rock could once again appear in Wrestlemania, after Johnson made a surprise appearance last month at a WWE event in Boston. According to the Inquisitr, Johnson performed as part of a segment with fellow wrestler Bo Dallas but did not wrestle.
The publication further said that Johnson was in Boston filming Central Intelligence, and could have made the appearance out of convenience.
Johnson, a former wrestler before he became a successful actor since 2001, had revealed in May that he is thinking about making a return to the WWE during Wrestlemania 32. This return is apparently being worked out by the big boss of the WWE himself, Vince McMahon.
“Myself, Vince, Triple H have talked about creating something that is amazing,” Johnson revealed in an interview with the Sports Illustrated.
The San Andreas actor said that his return is dependent on whether or not they can create something that is exciting for the fans and large enough on the promotional scale. Johnson said that there are “lots of elements” that he and the other parties are still discussing and arranging.
He also said that it could be a possible match with Triple H, who is also working to come up with something to convince Johnson to make a comeback in Wrestlemania 32.
“We continue to talk about it, and we’re still shooting each other text messages. [Triple H] sent me a message from Dallas that said, ‘This could be us. The record is ours.’ So we’ll see,” the wrestler-turned-actor revealed.
After appearing this year in the disaster movie San Andreas, Johnson is due to appear next year in the upcoming film Central Intelligence opposite Kevin Hart. Variety said that Johnson will play a CIA contract killer who forcibly enlists the aid of his former classmate to prevent the sale of classified secrets.
