The Rock May Not Return to WWE Until 2022

Some time ago, The Rock hinted at a wrestling return against his cousin, Roman Reigns. Reports suggested that The Great One wants to wrestle Reigns at WrestleMania, and fans speculated that he would perform next year. 

It’s unlikely that The Rock will return next year for a match. As of now, WWE is considering Goldberg to face The Big Dog for the Universal Championship at next year’s show. 

However, Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that The Rock hasn’t ruled out the possibility to return in 2022. By then, he would be 49 years old which also means that The People Champion will be physically limited in the ring. 

The last time WWE fans saw The Rock wrestle was in 2016 when he wrestled Erick Rowan at WrestleMania and won the match in just a few seconds.

In the past, WWE had to scrap some of their plans involving The Rock due to his Hollywood schedule. Only time will tell if The Great One would return to WWE once again.
