The Rock appeared on Sports Nation yesterday with Michelle Beadle and said that he would love to return to the WWE and wrestle again, even revealing that he has been in negotiations and planning with Vince McMahon about a comeback.
In the interview, Rock once again confirmed that the night after WrestleMania 29 he was supposed to start a long-term feud with Brock Lesnar, but that was derailed after he tore two tendons from his pelvis in his match with John Cena.
He said that Rock vs. Lesnar was slated to be one of the main events for WrestleMania 30, and if it went well, they would have had a Visit Wrestling Inc. rematch next year at WrestleMania 31. Rock noted that there are other plans for Lesnar now.
As for returning to the ring, Johnson said that he has spoken with McMahon about an in-ring return, and it’s just a matter of finding out what opponent makes sense.
He would need to face up against a star that has a real marquee factor to him. Rock noted that there are up and coming stars like Bray Wyatt and Roman Reigns who have lots of potential at the moment, but need to truly become stars in the industry for them to be considered.
The crux of the piece however remains that Rocky wants his return, we’re just not sure when it will be yet.
