The Rock Confirmed He’s Finally Coming Back To WWE’s “WrestleMania 32”

Know a died-in-the-wool wrestling fan, or are one yourself? Then you’ll know that – in that world – the most wonderful time of the year isn’t Christmas, it’s the Road to WrestleMania.

The path to the WWE‘s annual, sprawling, biggest show of the year is more often than not when the company pulls out their A-material – storylines that build towards the biggest matches of the year, on the biggest card of the year, at the biggest event of the year.
And the 32nd instalment of WrestleMania is aiming higher than the company ever has before.
The event is set to take place from the gargantuan AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas – and the WWE has plans to break the stadium’s current attendance record.
The first problem with that, is that the current attendance record for the stadium is a whopping 108,713 – set in February of 2010 for the NBA All-Star Game.
The second problem is that the WWE is currently suffering from a plethora of major injuries that is severely hampering its potential star power for the event.
Fortunately for everyone, the glorious marvel that is Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson exists. And even though it was previously thought his commitments to being one of the biggest movie stars in the world would have kept him away, The Rock put that speculation to bed a short time ago.

The Rock has appeared at the past 5 consecutive WrestleMania events, including WrestleMania 31 in March of this year, when he brought UFC champ Ronda Rousey into the ring for a confrontation with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, which culminated in Rousey hip-tossing Triple H.

What role The Rock will play at this year’s instalment of ‘Mania is yet to be determined – and it is still strongly rumoured that he’ll be prevented from becoming physically involved in the event, due to insurance issues from filming commitments he has at the same time.
Regardless, The Rock’s name is a huge boost to the event, and will surely go a long way towards electrifying the millions (and millions).
WrestleMania 32 takes place from Dallas’ AT&T Stadium on Sunday, April 3rd 2016 (US time).
You’ll be able to watch it in Australia either on pay-per-view via Foxtel‘s Main Event channel, or via the WWE’s Netflix-style streaming service, WWE Network.
