Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson needs no introduction when it comes to the pro wrestling world as he is still regarded as one of the all-time greats. He is also a dominant force in Hollywood and brings huge star power to any film he acts in. The Rock is also a businessman and a very conniving one at that. He also loves keeping himself in the best physical shape possible. Unfortunately, it seems The Rock is not going to make it for this year’s Survivor Series.

Ever since The Rock’s last appearance in WWE well over two years ago, many fans have been wondering when the Great One will make his return to WWE television. Many believed he would be returning during this year’s Survivor Series pay-per-view.

According to Dave Meltzer on the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, The Rock making his appearance on the 25th anniversary of his WWF main promotion televised debut at Survivor Series 1996 will no longer be happening. As expected, it was due to his other commitments.

This had been talked about for a long time, but it fell through since Johnson had other commitments that has him in Australia for the filming of the second season of “Young Rock” on the day of the show. Because of quarantine regulations, it’s going to be impossible to go back and forth so those involved with the show, including Johnson, will be in Australia from a few weeks from now until late January.

The Rock will be in Australia filming for the second season of ‘Young Rock’ on the day of this year’s Survivor Series pay-per-view. Due to the current quarantine regulations, it would be impossible for him to go back and forth between the two things.

The Rock hasn’t wrestled a proper WWE match in years, as his last match was back in WrestleMania 32. It remains to be seen whether The Rock will be back around time for WrestleMania 39. Many expect him to square off against Roman Reigns at the event, so it will be interesting to see if it truly happens or not.
