They have revealed no details as to how ‘The Rock Month’ will be celebrated. But WWE has confirmed that content dedicated to Dwayne Johnson will be uploaded throughout the month.

WWE has already uploaded a collection of all of Rock’s championship wins on their YouTube page and will be uploading more tribute videos on Peacock.

According to reports, The Rock would appear on RAW or SmackDown this month, but unfortunately, nothing is confirmed yet. Meanwhile, Dwayne is busy promoting his upcoming film, ‘Red Notice,’ cast alongside Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds.

Johnson was also going to return at Survivor Series supposedly, but he will be busy shooting in Australia. An appearance from Rocky seems unlikely.
