The Rock is not booked for WrestleMania 37. There were rumors that he would face Roman Reigns this year, but a lack of a packed stadium changed things.

Ringside News exclusively reported in December that The Rock wants to make a return inside a sold-out setting. WrestleMania 37 will not afford him that opportunity.

It was further noted in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that The Rock will require a much larger audience to make his return to the ring. That is a big “if” at this point because there is no guarantee that he will be able to fit it into his busy schedule.

Whatever talk of Reigns vs. Dwayne Johnson we were told would not happen this year because IF Johnson wants one more match, it’s going to be a full stadium and preferably Los Angeles.

The next few years could get even busier for Dwayne Johnson. Not only is he involved with a ton of projects from his tequila company to Black Adam, but there are many things in the pipeline as well. One of those considerations is also a run for U.S. President.

We’ll have to see if WWE can get The Rock back for WrestleMania this year, but they will have to make sure it’s a much larger event than this year’s pandemic-altered show of shows.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
