Dwayne Johnson is a man with many talents. Some of these involve acting, producing, bodybuilding, and many others. But one that stands that came before anything was wrestling. But to pursue fame and money, The Rock turned his career from just a wrestler to the highest paid actor in the business in just under a decade.

Even though he came back for WrestleMania 28 & 29, fighting John Cena, was one of the most memorable matches in wrestling history, we never saw him in a full-fledged role in WWE ever again. But don’t let your hopes and dreams die down already, because this actress wants to fight him in the wrestling ring for starters.

In an interview on the red carpet for their movie, Jungle Cruise, Johnson was asked if he would make a return to wrestling anytime soon. But he didn’t say anything. Instead, his co-actor, Emily Blunt, chimed in by saying, “It’s me and him in a big BIG fight.

The rumors surrounding the eventual return of Dwayne Johnson are getting more and more intense. Many things are just getting ready at the same time for Johnson to make his return to face his cousin, Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39. Albeit, The Rock has always had, the time schedule.

From what we know, Johnson is free during the early quarter of 2023. There are no film screenings or shootings happening during that time of the year. This gives Johnson time to not only train in the Performance Center for the match but also minimize any injuries that could happen. Secondly, WrestleMania is coming to Hollywood, which is a second home to Johnson at this point.
