Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson recently spoke with Chris Van Vliet at the world premiere of Baywatch in Miami Beach. During the interview, he was asked why he did not attend WrestleMania 33 last month in Orlando, Florida.
Johnson has made an appearance at WrestleMania since 2011 at WrestleMania 27, which he was the host of that show. He wrestled John Cena in a singles match at WrestleMania 28 and again at WrestleMania 29 for the WWE Title. At WrestleMania 30, he did an in-ring segment with Steve Austin and Hulk Hogan while at WrestleMania 31 he did an in-ring angle alongside Ronda Rousey, Triple H, and Stephanie McMahon. At WrestleMania 32, he wrestled a quick match against Erick Rowan. Johnson explained that the reason he did not appear at this year’s Mania was due to him filming his HBO series “Ballers.”
“No, I didn’t get a chance to. I was shooting at that time. We were just wrapping up Ballers in LA, so I didn’t get a chance to make it.”
