Watch: The Rock Electrifies the WWE with His Long-Awaited Return – Faceoff with John Cena

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson made his long-awaited return to the WWE this past Friday, and the internet is still buzzing about it.

The Rock made his first appearance in four years during an episode of SmackDown filmed at Denver’s Ball Arena. He made his grand entrance during a segment involving Austin Theory and former NFL punter Pat McAfee. (McAfee and Rock had just done an interview this week, during which the latter teased a WrestleMania 40 return.)

The 51-year-old entertainer walked in and was met with a roaring crowd and his theme song, “Electrifying.” The crowd went wild, and the internet was just as excited.

Fans Reaction:

“It has been literally twenty years since there has been a pop like that. The Rock does know how to make an entrance. The Rock. It feels funny even saying ‘The Rock’. Surreal,” wrote one fan on Twitter.

The Rock took to the ring to trade barbs with Austin Theory before the two came to blows. The face-off ultimately ended, however, with Dwayne Johnson hitting Theory with his signature move: the People’s Elbow.

Needless to say, the moment stoked up a plethora of emotions within fans.

“If you’ve been a devoted wrestling fan for years, then chances are you probably feel the same way. Viewers can probably remember many nights in which The Rock delighted audiences with his physicality and showmanship. And let’s be real, his penchant for trash-talking is still legendary. Though he’s been away from the ring for a while now, many still revere him,” wrote another fan.

After the segment, The Rock also had a chance to meet up with another WWE legend, John Cena. The two stars hugged and exchanged pleasantries, and the video of their meeting quickly went viral.

“One may be surprised to see both of these stars back in their old stomping grounds. While we can’t confirm exactly what initiated these appearances, one would think that SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes in Hollywood may have opened up their schedules a bit,” wrote one fan.

It’s unclear if The Rock’s return to the WWE is a one-time thing or if he’s planning on making more appearances in the future. But regardless of what happens, his comeback was a major moment for the WWE and its fans.

Why The Rock’s Return is a Big Deal

The Rock is one of the most popular and successful wrestlers of all time. He’s also a global superstar, thanks to his successful acting career.

His return to the WWE is a big deal for several reasons. First, it shows that the WWE is still a major draw, even for the biggest stars in the world. Second, it gives fans a chance to see one of their favorite wrestlers back in the ring. And third, it opens up the possibility of some dream matches, such as The Rock vs. Roman Reigns.

It remains to be seen what the future holds for The Rock and the WWE. But his return is a sign that the company is still going strong and that it’s still committed to giving fans the best possible product.
