Can you smell what the rock is cooking?
After a seven year hiatus Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson stepped into the ring on Monday Night Raw. He announced his return not to fight but to host Wrestlemania XXVII on April 3, 2011 in Atlanta.
What do fans think?
One fan – Komatose89 had this to say on Youtube:
“Im a 21 year old man, and Im NOT ashamed to say I cried a little when I saw this,” he wrote. “This is MY generation of wrestling.”
In what looked like a poorly lit cheap hotel room filmed by an iPhone the Rock made his announcement:
“Do you smell what The Rock is cooking? The Rock has come back to Wrestlemania. The most electrifying man of all of entertainment is hosting the most electrifying event of all of entertainment!”
Since leaving WWE, Dwayne Johnson has had fairly successful movie career with “The Game Plan”, “Scorpion King”, and “The Other Guys”.
For now it’s just a hosting gig but who knows what the future will bring?
Here’s a clip from last night’s event:
Are you excited to see the Rock back on the WWE?
