It is official. There was a ton of doubt within WWE about The Rock’s status for WrestleMania but a deal must have been worked out this past week because he will be at WrestleMania in Dallas.
There was an issue with his insurance company that would have prevented him from appearing in a physical role and he is also filming a movie in Georgia during WrestleMania season but it looks like WWE was able to work things out to get him on the show. There is no word yet on whether he will be wrestling or if he will be involved in a segment on the show.
Rock made the announcement on his Instagram account today:
IT'S OFFICIAL: People's Champ is coming home to do 3 things with THE PEOPLE: Set an ALL-TIME attendance record, ELECTRIFY Dallas like never before & make all time #WRESTLEMANIA history. And we have FUN. Ok that's four things but you know what the hell The Rock's sayin'.. ?. THANK YOU #WWEUniverse! It's always an honor coming home and I wouldn't miss it for the world. #PeoplesChamp4L #MakingElectrifyingHistory #SmackethLaidDownOnThyCandyAsses ???
