DMX’s raps ruled the late 1990s, and it paved the path for a revolutionary change in the industry. Now, even though he has passed, his music and words will continue echoing through the industry for a long time.

What is The Rock doing?

Coming to The Rock, he is currently working on his upcoming superhero movie, Black Adam. The teaser was released months back, and finally, the shoot has started. It’ll be exciting to watch him in a new role in the coming future.

Apart from Black Adam, he worked on a series called Young Rock. This series is an insight into Dwayne Johnson’s childhood and involves characters who shaped him to become the person he is today.

However, given his schedule, it is unlikely he will appear at WrestleMania 37. Even though a significant portion of the WWE Universe is waiting for his return to the ring, it definitely won’t be WrestleMania 37.

In fact, his cousin, Roman Reigns, revealed the perfect time for The Rock’s return. Moreover, he revealed that the best Superstar against whom ‘The Brahma Bull’ should return in Roman Reigns himself.

Not only does Reigns think this, but so does The Rock.
