I want ‘The Rock’ to make a shocking return to WWE as I did – John Cena admits
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is a star in his own universe. There is no one like him. There will never be anyone like him, says John Cena
The 16-WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena has admitted that he wants Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson to follow him in making a sensational return to WWE.
The wrestler turned Hollywood star finally made his in-ring comeback in epic fashion at Sunday’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view.
The 2008 Royal Rumble winner has not wrestled since WrestleMania 36 in April 2020.
Yet Cena is now set to headline Summerslam against WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns after he confronted the Tribal Chief.
The Rock meanwhile was recently linked with his own comeback to start a feud with his cousin at November’s Survivor Series.
The Universal Champion himself said earlier this year that 'it made sense for the Hobbs & Shaw co-stars to throw down in Hollywood at WrestleMania 39 in 2022.
Cena has now weighed in by claiming a return would be great for both WWE and The Rock after heaping praise on ‘The Most Electrifying Man In Sports Entertainment.’
“Dwayne Johnson is a star in his own universe. There is no one like him. There will never be anyone like him.
“For him to be gracious enough to return to WWE, it’s own global entertainment phenomenon, that’s great for WWE and it is great for The Rock.”
“As a fan of WWE, I really hope he returns. I think it would be special for everyone.” Cena told E!:
The Rock has previously entertained the idea of fighting Reigns back in 2017 when he was asked who would he love to face in the ring? ‘The Great One’ immediately said:
“One would be Triple H, The Game. The other would be The Beast Brock Lesnar.
“The other one would be a guy that actually just needs my foot in his ass, Roman Reigns. Yeah.”
The Rock has indeed been linked with a return to face the Universal Champion – Roman Reigns in the ‘grandest stage of them all’ – Wrestlemania next year.
