Guess what? It is very possible to see Dwayne Johnson in a big WWE comeback! The Rock has been linked with this comeback and we could definitely see him in one of the most epic WWEWrestleMania clashes with Brock Lesnar.
In fact, the WWE planned to have The Rock at the Men’s Royal Rumble Match. This match will take place on January 27at the Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona. Even though we were all looking forward to a battle with Roman Reigns which was to happen at the Universal Championship at WrestleMania on April 7 at the MetLife Stadium in New York, this isn’t happening. The main reason is that Roman Reigns took an extended leave of absence as he was diagnosed for leukaemia and needs treatment.
However, this doesn’t mean that we won’t see Dwayne Johnson at WWE. Instead, it is very likely that The People’s Champion will return and battle former rival Lesnar for the Universal Championship at Mania. This return will definitely depend on one condition and that is the deal The Rock and WWE will make.
Recently, WrestleVotes tweeted that the plan was that The Rock should face Roman Reigns at Mania. However, as this won’t happen, it is possible that Dwayne faces Lesnar and that it only depends on the kind of agreement they make.
Rumble tidbit: Plan at one point was for The Rock to win the Royal Rumble & face Roman Reigns at Mania. That’s obviously not happening. Can Rock still win it & face Lesnar? I guess. Depends what kind of agreement Rock and WWE have. Once plans changed, Rock may have reconsidered.

We have only seen these two face only once. The battle between Lesnar and Johnson happened in 2002 at the SummerSlam. Lesnar earned his first world title after winning the championship after pinning The Rock following an F-5. Lesnar was then 25 and became the youngest WWE Champion of all time. In 2004, Lesnar left the WWE and moved to the UFC where he became Heavyweight Champion. Then, in 2012, he again returned to the WWE and has beaten some of the best wrestlers, such as CM Punk, John Cena, and Triple H.
On the other hand, Johnson left WWE and started with his acting career, which became very successful. In fact, he has acted in many blockbusters, such as the Fast & Furious franchise and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. Moreover, he has worked side by side with many movie stars, including Kevin Hart, Bruce Willis, and John Travolta. However, he revealed that he would like to return to the ring in the future as he misses the connection with the audience.
