The Rock’s return to WWE RAW this week was a big moment. It also went a lot longer than anyone planned.

The Rock and Jinder Mahal had a nice back-and-forth on television. In the end, Rock got “Day One Douche Bag” chants going for Mahal, who then ate a spinebuster and a People’s Elbow. There was no Rock Bottom, but there was also no time for it.

Sean Sapp reported behind Fightful’s paywall that The Rock’s segment actually went over time. They needed to them make up for that time later on in the night.

The Rock’s segment went about seven minutes over the scheduled segment.


The Rock hit all of his points, including laying down words that seemed like challenge for Roman Reigns. It was quite a segment, and a massive surprise for everyone involved.

The Rock’s return generated significant attention and interest. The segment, when uploaded to YouTube, quickly garnered over 1 million views in less than eight hours, underscoring the enduring popularity and star power of Dwayne Johnson in the wrestling world.

We will keep our eye on this story, and so many more, here at Ringside News. You never know what will break next, but it is bound to be a massive story if Dwayne Johnson is involved.
