With WWE stacking the deck on bringing in major names for the 25th Anniversary show, there may be an addition to that list. Right now, The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, and Kevin Nash are the marquee names on the ticket, along with superstars from both Raw and SmackDown Live. According to PWInsider, The Rock could also make an appearance. However, it is likely that it would not be a physical appearance, but via satellite or a pre-recorded video.
Typically, The Rock makes an appearance at every WrestleMania event since his official return in 2011. He was the host of WrestleMania 27, and competed at both WrestleMania 28 and 29, splitting matches against John Cena. He was a part of the opening segment of WrestleMania 30, along with Hulk Hogan and Steve Austin, and brought Ronda Rousey to the ring at WrestleMania 31 during a segment with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. He returned back to the ring after a three-year hiatus to defeat Erick Rowan in quick fashion at WrestleMania 32. However, he did not appear at WrestleMania 33 due to his intense schedule.
While The Rock would make a terrific addition to the 25th Anniversary Show, it is reportedly unlikely that we will see him in the ring, as his schedule will most likely not permit.
