In 2021, just like in 2020, WWE wanted to give its fans several surprises, such as the various returns of the last period of Bill Goldberg, John Cena and after last night also those of Becky Lynch and Brock Lesnar. One of the most sensational names that the McMahon company has never taken into consideration in this last period, is instead that of The Rock, elder cousin of the Tribal Chief of Smackdown, which has now been missing from the WWE for quite a while.
In recent months there had been a lot of talk about the fact that WWE wanted to propose for the edition of Wrestlemania next year, a dispute between cousins and therefore a match valid for the title currently alongside Roman Reigns, the Universal Championship, with The Rock as an opponent of the Tribal Chief.
However, at the moment everything seems to have been put in mothballs, with Reigns now having to deal with the newly returned, Brock Lesnar.
Backstage news on The Rock
Speaking of The Rock topic in his latest interview, WWE co-president Nick Khan also wanted to reopen the return speech, with the homonym of the AEW president, who in fact revealed to Ariel Helwani's microphones: "As for Dwayne Johnson and him building himself as a mega star all by himself.
We are in constant contact with him regarding different opportunities that may come into our relationship. WWE was also a producer on 'Young Rock' They graciously let us do that because they wanted us to be their partner."
At the moment there are no clues as to when and how we will see the return of The Rock in WWE, but the certain thing is that between the two parties the relationship is excellent and thus great plans could be built for the return to the ring of the actor of Hollywood most famous of the moment and also the highest-paid.
We will therefore only have to wait and see. Lance Storm is widely regarded as one of the best technical wrestlers in the world. He was signed by WWE during the invasion angle in 2001 when they bought the erstwhile WCW. Close to a month after the 'Winner-Take-All' match at Survivor Series, Storm defeated The Rock in a one-on-one bout via count-out on an episode of Monday Night RAW.
The Brahma Bull eventually gained two pinfall victories over Storm, once in 2001, teaming up with Rob Van Dam, and later in 2002 when he teamed up with Hulk Hogan.
