The Rock celebrates a special occasion

26 years ago, The Rock made its WWE debut at New York's Madison Square Garden. Who would have thought that that silly looking rookie would become one of the greatest wrestlers ever? 'The Great One' has had a stellar career, contributing to the spread of this business in every corner of the world.

In the early 2000s, the 'Brahma Bull' left the ring to pursue a film career. Within a few years, The Rock became one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood and is still on the crest of the wave today. According to insiders, Johnson could return to the ring at WrestleMania 39 to face his cousin Roman Reigns, the undisputed leader of WWE for a couple of years.

No one has managed to break the hegemony of the 'Tribal Chief', who got rid of Brock Lesnar, Drew McIntyre and Logan Paul this year.

New details on The Rock

Through a post published on Twitter, The Rock recalled his WWE debut: “It has been 26 years since my first WWE match at Madison Square Garden in New York.

From a very young age, I was willing to work harder than anyone else. Despite the difficulties and the unexpected, it was a wonderful journey ”. Some time ago, The Rock had seriously considered running for president of the United States.

'The Brahma Bull', however, has rethought it: "I have no intention of running for the presidency of the USA. I love the United States and I adore all of its citizens, but I already have a busy life. I have to look after my family and support my daughter at this stage in her life.

I have been absent for a long time due to my work and now I want to be next to her. She is my priority. If I tried to become president, I would no longer have time to be with her”. The Rock's appearances in WWE have become more and more sporadic over the years, but the WWE Universe has never stopped loving him and calling for his return.

Former WWE writer and close friend to The Rock, Brian Gerwitz, recently commented on the possibility of The Great One making his return to the ring in 2023. "I have no idea. I really don’t. All I know is if and when Rock, Dwayne, you know, comes back to WWE, the bar he always sets, and wrote about it in the book, you see it in and all those projects, and Black Adam, which we just at a screening for, it’s like, the expectation level is so high, and this audience first mentality that is very, very real, it needs to match it, and it needs to be something gigantic," said Gerwitz.
