Will The Rock Return To WWE At Royal Rumble 2023?

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is rumored to be involved in WWE’s main event Wrestle Mania 39 with Roman Reigns likely to challenge “The Tribal Chief” for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. But as that show approaches, the big question is how WWE will set up the match between its top champion and one of the biggest stars in Hollywood who hasn’t been in the ring for a professional wrestling match in nearly a decade. One of the popular theories is that Johnson could be a surprise entrant to the 2023 Men’s Royal Rumble and take a shot at Reigns’ title with a triumphant surprise return.

Dave Meltzer touched on that idea on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, noting that there’s at least a chance Johnson could return there. He explained (h/t WrestleTalk), “This Royal Rumble, there are so many different things they can do at this Royal Rumble to build up to WrestleMania. Obviously everyone would expect Cody (Rhodes), there’s always a chance of Dwayne, others who are in that could be thrown in.” While this is mostly speculation, more information about Johnson’s possible involvement is likely to emerge as we get closer to the royal rumble event on January 28.

Roman reigns over his future with WWE

Reigns spoke with The Ringers this week about his current run as WWE’s top star. While there’s been a lot of fan speculation about how Reigns’ two-year world championship will end, he stated that his run in WWE’s stardom isn’t quite halfway over.

“I’m in the thick of it,” Reigns said. “People want these interviews, they want to do these documentaries. But this is the bottom of the third inning for me. We’re in the second quarter of the Super Bowl now.”

“We did this in turbulent times, through a pandemic, through the biggest change of all time in this industry,” he continued. “And we did it seamlessly. We did it without hesitation. Later on, 20 years from now, when we start disclosing all these crazy inside details, there’s just going to be even more respect for the performances we’ve put on Man, it’s been a great journey, but it’s only just begun. It’s about to get bigger.”
