Ever since The Rock became a huge Hollywood star, his wresting schedule was virtually nil for seven long years. It wasn’t until his return to the WWE in 2011 that he started to wrestle again. He’s confirmed he will wrestle once again next year at WrestleMania XXX.

During the WrestleMania XXX press conference held at New Orleans earlier this week, Rock confirmed he will be there to compete. It was also confirmed that the event will be held at the Superdome. This is the same venue for this year’s Super Bowl.

One thing fans will not want to see is a third match between him and John Cena. He’s already scheduled to face Cena for the second time at WrestleMania 29.

It’s interesting to note that Paul Heyman tweeted about Rock and his potential opponent for WrestleMania XXX. He said “do I have an opponent for him!”

This might be an indication that Rock might face Brock Lesnar next year. It has been rumored this match is currently scheduled for this year’s SummerSlam, but a match of this magnitude is better suited for WrestleMania in my opinion. This is because both men are bigger stars now than their first encounter at SummerSlam 2002.

Rock’s current commitment to the WWE shows how much he’s willing to give back to the wrestling fans that made him famous in the first place. Rock revealed a few years ago in multiple interviews that he had no interest in wrestling again. I guess that was “Dwayne Johnson” who was talking at the time instead…
