There is no doubt that The Rock was one of the most successful wrestlers to have played in WWE, thanks above all to a truly unique charisma and personality. Not surprisingly, Dwayne Johnson has enjoyed just as much success outside of wrestling, quickly becoming a major Hollywood star.
In recent weeks, rumors have grown that Vince McMahon intends to bring the Attitude Era symbol back to the ring, nearly five years after his last appearance. Via his official Twitter profile, former WWE superstar Shane 'Hurricane' Helms (who now plays an important backstage role) explained that he was covering the match between The Rock and Booker T that took place at SummerSlam 2001.
Helms added that he would have liked to see a longer feud between these champions.
The Rock is one of the greatest WWE Superstars of all time
The Rock spotted the tweet and responded almost immediately, revealing one of his biggest regrets relating to his run in WWE.
"Thanks, bro. I also happen to think about it again. One of my biggest regrets in WWE was not having a long rivalry with Booker T. He was one of my favorite superstars and the best pure athlete I've ever worked with. Fluid, intelligent, incredible movements and work style.
I always say that his moves had a rare elegance" - he wrote. In 2001, WWE President Vince McMahon bought WCW and took over the contracts of several wrestlers. Among them was Diamond Dallas Page, who was eager to compete with The Rock.
"I should have faced The Rock, that was the initial idea. Instead, in the end, I got involved in the stalking affair with The Undertaker's ex-wife, Sara. The Rock and I would have made a lot of money, I have no doubt about that.
However, I was happy to join WWE, it turned out to be the best choice for me,” confided DDP. "I would say a good percentage of professional wrestlers, maybe 69% to be exact, wanna be The Rock by the time it's all said and done," said Dean Muhtadi.
He further added that he had a great experience being a part of "Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins" and looks forward to acting in more movies. "It was such a cool experience. I'm looking forward to more in the future," added Muhtadi.
The most electrifying man in all of sports entertainment, The Rock could be on his way back to WWE sooner rather than later. Ever since current Universal Champion Roman Reigns' heel turn and new gimmick, the WWE Universe has wanted to see him feud with his cousin and WWE legend The Rock.
