The Rock revealed huge news on his Instagram account earlier this evening that despite the rumours. The Rock will indeed be at the biggest Wrestlemania event of all time, Wrestlemania 32.
therock: IT’S OFFICIAL: People’s Champ is coming home to do 3 things with THE PEOPLE: Set an ALL-TIME attendance record, ELECTRIFY Dallas like never before & make all time#WRESTLEMANIA history. And we have FUN. Ok that’s four things but you know what the hell The Rock’s sayin’.. 😂. THANK YOU #WWEUniverse! It’s always an honor coming home and I wouldn’t miss it for the world. #PeoplesChamp4L#MakingElectrifyingHistory#SmackethLaidDownOnThyCandyAsses👊🏾💯
The Rock’s status for this years Mania has been questionable since Rock was scheduled to start filming in Rawson Marshall Thruber’s comedy film “Central Intelligence” during Wrestlemania season. Producers of the film are said to have warned him from taking part in any wrestling event during filming to prevent injuries. Tonight’s news is indication that The Rock will be most likely wrestling at Mania.
Following a near 7 year absence, Rock appeared at Wrestlemania 27 as the host, only to cost John Cena his WWE Championship match against The Miz, setting up two consecutive matches against the leader of the Cenation. In his last WWE match, The Rock suffered a torn abdomen and adductor at Wrestlemania 29. According to reports The Rock’s insurance company is not willing to cover him for any further injuries sustained in the ring. Despite that, The Peoples Champion appeared in the opening segment at Wrestlemania 30 with Stone Cold and Hulk Hogan; whilst at Wrestlemania 31 confronted The Authority alongside Ronda Rousey in an incredible segment.
Whilst tonight’s announcement only really confirms that The Rock will be attending the event. It is not clear what role The Great One will take. Fans will be eager to see The Rock compete in-front of potentially 103,000 fans; based upon last years segment a match against Triple H could work very well and if Ronda Rousey could somehow be involved would be incredible.
