The Rock hasn’t made his way back to WWE in a long time. Although he is still one of the most popular Superstars of all time, Dwayne Johnson’s career in Hollywood kept him from WWE’s bright lights, but there could be a change for that coming up.

The Rock received an invitation from Grayson Waller to show up at SmackDown. This was after the two had a back-and-forth Twitter battle on the social media site.

Grayson Waller went on to bring his Twitter beef with The Rock to SmackDown. Waller called out The Great one by throwing some shade in his direction. The piqued a lot of attention as well.

During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that The Rock must be doing this online Twitter work with Grayson Waller for a reason. After all, The Rock usually puts over talent in some way when he returns.


If he’s doing this, he’s doing it to put the guy over, obviously. If he’s doing this, then he’s doing this for a reason. Maybe he’s gonna show up soon? They sure talked about it a lot. Maybe they talked about it cause it’s Dwayne Johnson?

Ringside News exclusively reported that we reached out to inquire about The Rock’s current WWE status. A tenured member of the WWE creative team confirmed to us that, “as of now, there is nothing for Waller and Rock.”

We were also told that, “Rock is hurting for positive publicity, so there may be something in the works.” This could bring a lot of positive attention his way.

We will have to see if The Rock shows up on WWE television again sooner or later. He is always welcome to come back, because WWE will be his home forever. That being said, you never know what WWE has planned as we make our way toward the biggest party of the summer.

Do you want to see The Rock come back and have a segment or match with Grayson Waller? Sound off in the comments to let us know what you’re thinking!
