There was a rumor that The Rock would come back to WWE at WrestleMania 39 against Roman Reigns. One of the reasons for this was that WrestleMania 39 (April 2nd, 2023) is when WWE goes Hollywood.

However, ‘The Most Electrifying Man in Sports Entertainment’ does believe he can return for one last match, as long as it makes sense. While it seems it will not be at WrestleMania 39, he could still make an appearance during the PPV.
