The Rock has been expected by WWE fans for some time now, also because there doesn't seem to be anyone able to beat Roman Reigns and surely The Rock could build something special also for the family bond between the two.
After the great anticipation of the legend at the Survivor Series, which obviously did not show up despite the anniversary of the debut and the constant clues left by the company, now at every premium live event, ex pay-per-view, everyone is expecting his return.
Obviously, with the approach of the Royal Rumble, which also brings with it the factor of surprise, it is not excluded that the current Hollywood actor may also make an appearance, if not in the match, to disturb Reigns and Rollins in theirs.
Will The Rock participate in the Royal Rumble?
Ringside News decided to update us on this situation: “We were told by a tenured member of the creative team that" The Rock was never scheduled at all "for Royal Rumble.
The company made every Royal Rumble plan without even considering The Rock for a role. Since it is well known that Jumani star is busy, "Rock was never even once discussed for a chance to appear. This hasn't changed and won't change, so dismiss all rumors of any consideration for The Rock on January 29th." Ringside News also exclusively reported that WWE never planned The Rock vs Roman Reigns for Wrestlemania 39: “Dwayne Johnson is a very busy man, and WWE will pick him up when he's available.
That availability won't open anytime soon. Dwayne Johnson will return to WWE eventually for, at least, one appearance. He might even fight again, but he's going to take a lot of softening. " So let's say that anything can always happen but the site invites fans not to pin their hopes too much on a return of The Rock to the Royal Rumble.
Having held the Universal Championship for over 500 days now, Reigns seems unstoppable and fans are hoping to see The People's Champion return to face his "bloodline". WWE has been dropping several hints of the same, but the clash hasn't been made possible due to The Great One's busy Hollywood schedule.
Speaking to Brandon Davis of Comicbook.com last year, The Rock mentioned that while he's not sure if he has another title run left in him, he didn't rule out another match. "I don't know if I have another title run, considering I'm the People's Champion.
But I don't know if it's another title run. I think possibly, you know, there might be another match down the road. It would have to make sense," said The Rock.
