The WWE universe is buzzing with excitement as rumors circulate about the possible return of the legendary Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson at this year’s SummerSlam. Set to be held at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan on August 5, the 36th annual “The Biggest Party of the Summer” is already gearing up to be a historic event.
For years, fans have eagerly anticipated a dream showdown between The Rock and his cousin Roman Reigns in a one-on-one match. This epic encounter has been envisioned as a record-breaking moment for the company, with many speculating it would take place at WrestleMania, the grandest stage of them all. However, The Rock’s busy schedule as a Hollywood megastar has kept this dream matchup on hold.
It’s been nearly four years since The Rock made his last appearance on WWE TV, a brief moment on the inaugural SmackDown episode on FOX in October 2019. Meanwhile, Roman Reigns has risen to dominate the show, solidifying his status as the undisputed WWE Universal Champion and the top draft pick on SmackDown. At SummerSlam, Reigns is set to engage in a “Tribal Combat” against his own flesh and blood, Jey Uso, to defend his prestigious title.
Amidst all the speculation, Dave Meltzer, a renowned name in wrestling journalism from the “Wrestling Observer Newsletter,” weighed in on the possibility of The Rock’s return. Meltzer admitted uncertainty, saying, “I asked if there’s gonna be somebody else, and they said ‘I don’t know, maybe,’ so who knows?”
