Perhaps one of the most iconic WWE stars of his time, Dwayne Johnson, or “The Rock” as he’s more commonly known, has made a brief return to WWE in a recent appearance of WWE Monday Night Raw. The international star made his appearance in style, rolling out of his car and into the path of other WWE stars before his entrance to the stage.
Fans of The Rock will also be further pleased to hear that he made a surprise entrance into the ring once again to take on The New Day with The Usos. This comes before The Rock is expected to make a return to WrestleMania 32 on April 3, 2016. In all, there’s plenty of opportunities to catch a glimpse of The Rock returning to his roots this year, and that’s definitely something fans are looking forward to seeing.
If you missed out on The Rock’s appearance on WWE Monday Night Raw, you’ll be able to catch up with all of the action. It’s safe to say that the star, who isn’t largely involved in WWE anymore, put other contenders to shame with his bulked-up physique and obvious raw strength. It’s pretty clear that The Rock has stayed on top of his wrestling game despite the fact that he doesn’t compete is often as he once did.
As you’ll notice, the crowd went absolutely wild upon the return of The Rock, and that’s no surprise considering he’s credited with being one of the most legendary wrestling stars of his time. In fact, it almost definitely left many of his fans longing for Dwayne’s full-time return to WWE or even wrestling in general.
Dwayne Johnson made his first appearance as a professional wrestling star back in 1995 and has since then become one of the most celebrated WWE stars of all time. However, in recent years, the star has semi-retired from wrestling and made his debut as a professional actor and producer. He’s held roles in several Fast and Furious films, as well as being the main star in the earthquake disaster film San Andreas. This was all alongside Johnson’s own HBO comedy, Ballers. It’s definitely fair to say that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been kept pretty busy since his semi-retirement from WWE and wrestling in general.
With Dwayne Johnson now holding a pretty successful acting career, it’s pretty easy to understand why he might be reluctant to once again return to full-time wrestling. Plus, The Rock is now 43, so it’s safe to assume that he has passed his peak physical strength that’s needed for professional wrestling. Either way, when you take into consideration how many upcoming films and TV shows Dwayne Johnson is set to appear in, there’s very little chance that we’re going to see him disappear from the public eye anytime soon. Central Intelligence and Moana are both set to be pretty big box-office hits when they reach cinemas later this year. With that in mind, the only way is up for The Rock!
In all, though, it was a nice little treat to see Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson make another appearance on WWE Monday Night Raw, especially ahead of what is set to be a pretty exciting year for the well-known wrestling star. It remains to be seen how much more wrestling we’ll see from The Rock in the future, but as long as he remains on our screens through his film and TV work, we definitely can’t complain.
