The Rock’s highly anticipated return to the wrestling ring at WrestleMania 40 marked his first in-ring appearance in eight years since his last record-setting match and over a decade since he competed in a full-fledged bout. In preparation for his grand comeback, several NXT stars assisted him with his training, and it seems The Rock showed his appreciation with special gifts for those who helped him get back into top form.

WWE enlisted the support of a trio of NXT talent to help The Rock prepare for his return to the ring at WrestleMania 40, aiding him in regaining his in-ring form and shaking off any potential ring rust. It has been revealed that this trio is none other than Gallus, prominent NXT faction.

Gallus, comprising real-life brothers Joe Coffey and Mark Coffey, along with Wolfgang, is a well-established group within WWE’s developmental brand. They played a key role in The Rock’s training sessions, contributing their expertise to ensure his return was successful.

The Rock was deeply appreciative of the assistance he received from the Gallus faction, particularly Joe Coffey, during his preparation for his return to the ring at WrestleMania 40. To show his gratitude, The Rock sent Joe Coffey a package containing Teremana Tequila, his own brand of tequila, along with a heartfelt message expressing his thanks. Coffey revealed this on his Instagram account for good measure.


“Joe, Enjoy the Mana brother! Congrats on WRESTLEMANIA and THANK YOU AGAIN for being a critical part of my training prep.” 

The Rock is expected to wrestle another match in 2024 before WrestleMania 41 as well. Nevertheless, we will have to wait and see when The Brahma Bull will make his return to the company again.
