Will The Rock return to perform in front of the live audience?

Currently, there’s no news of him coming back to the ring. Even though he has expressed his wish to return to the ring, he hasn’t specified when and how. Furthermore, even WWE has made no sign about his potential return.

On top of that, The Great One has revealed he cannot commit to a long-term return since his movie shooting schedule will not permit that. He can return for one PPV, but that’s about it. He cannot win a title, come back to drop it the following year or vice versa. Hence, he needs to work out a plan with the company before confirming any dates.
