WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle believes that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson still has what it takes to perform in a 30-minute match at WrestleMania. Angle shared his thoughts on the Great One’s potential ring return on the latest episode of his Kurt Angle podcast.

Angle praised The Rock’s dedication to fitness and training, saying that he works hard and keeps his body young and active. According to Angle, The Rock does not just stick to weight training but also focuses on plyometrics and other exercises. Angle is confident that The Rock could still wrestle, especially if he wants to.

“He really trains hard, and he has been able to keep his body young and active. When you watch him train, he does a lot of not just weight training and stuff, he does a lot of plyometrics and stuff like that. I believe that he could still wrestle.”

Angle even went as far as saying that he has no doubt The Rock could put on a good 30-minute match at WrestleMania. The Olympic Hero pointed out that The Rock has been taking care of his body and is unlikely to have any problems performing in a longer match.


“I believe if he wants to do it, he could put in a good 30-minute match at WrestleMania. I don’t doubt that for a second. He’s able to take care of his body as much as he has lately. I don’t see it being a problem for him.”

The Rock has not competed in a full-length match since losing the WWE Championship to John Cena at WrestleMania 29. However, he did make a brief appearance at WrestleMania 32, defeating Erick Rowan in just six seconds. Fans have been eagerly anticipating a dream match between The Rock and Roman Reigns, who appeared in The Rock’s Fast and Furious spinoff Hobbs & Shaw in 2019.

Although it remains to be seen whether The Rock will ever return to the squared circle, Angle’s endorsement of the Great One’s in-ring abilities has surely piqued the interest of wrestling fans everywhere.
