WWE is known for surprising fans with big moments, and the Day 1 RAW was no different. The Great One came back, and he dropped big teaser for Roman Reigns, and that shocked everyone, including those who work for the company.

The Rock returned to WWE during the 1/1/24 RAW, and that was a huge surprise on Day 1. Samantha Irvin had no idea that he was coming, either.

The Great One drew an incredible surprise reaction when he returned to the squared circle for that promo on RAW. Jinder Mahal was doing his thing before that, and WWE’s camera was on Samantha Irvin the whole time to capture her reaction to The Rock’s return.

Samantha Irvin always had a live mic in her hand, so she had to hold it very far away from her as she said, “Wow, oh my god” as The Rock made his way to the ring. This was an organic reaction, as you could tell that the WWE ring announcer had no idea The Rock was returning.


We will have to see if The Rock gets his match against Roman Reigns. That seems to be on the table once again as we round the corner to another road to WrestleMania.
