Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a renowned figure in the world of professional wrestling and maintains a strong connection to the industry despite his flourishing career in Hollywood. He is undoubtedly one of the biggest names in pro wrestling and fans really wanted to see him back in WWE. That being said, even his mom wants to see him back in WWE.
Last year, Roman Reigns even called out The Rock during a WWE live event. In fact, The Rock’s WWE return was said to be 100% in the plans. However, the likelihood of it happening now seems unlikely.
This is because The Rock simply couldn’t be ready in time to wrestle at WrestleMania 39. This certainly disappointed fans who wanted to see The Great One duke it out with The Tribal Chief.
While speaking to Insider, The Rock’s cousin Tamina talked about The Rock making his return to WWE in the future. Tamina revealed that The Rock’s entire family, including his mother, wants him to return to WWE.
All of us, including his mama, want him to come back. I feel like everybody wants him to return. It’s what you were made to do, and born to do. Wrestling is a love. Dwayne’s a huge mentor, you know, because when I first started, it was because of him. He’s a huge example. The way he is in interviews, that’s really him — he’s really that funny person. He’s that loving man, that husband, and he is that father. Like, his girls are crazy about their dad. You see him as a character, you see him as a superstar at WWE. It’s all these different things, but he’s an entrepreneur. He could probably become the next president for crying out loud, and I’m proud of him. You can never repay anybody back for any of that for the kind of love that they show you.”
Triple H has said that the door is always open for The Rock to return. We will have to wait and see whether The Rock will still somehow make an appearance at WrestleMania 39 this year.
