Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, appeared at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour to promote his new TNT reality series, The Hero, but also talked briefly about his return to RAW and his upcoming, headlining match at WrestleMania 29.
A casting call for Johnson’s competition series The Hero is currently underway, so it will be a while before he has to head off and film it. That being said, the WWE’s “Road to WrestleMania” storylines are about to kick in and Johnson is about to return for a multi-month commitment.
“The storyline will be that starting this coming Monday [for RAW], I’m gonna go back, and it’s going to be a big return,” Johnson said. “That will lead to, hopefully, what will be the biggest WrestleMania of all time at Giants Stadium. I will headline that show, with someone who I can’t say right now. We’ve got an amazing four months lined up and planned out that will culminate in the biggest WrestleMania of all time. It’s going to be a hell of a thing.”
Most assume that The Rock will face John Cena in a WrestleMania rematch, but being months out, thinks could always change. Either that, or Johnson just didn’t want to give away to the story, no matter how obvious.
