Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock has confirmed that he will be the star attraction at WrestleMania 32. The professional wrestler-turned-Hollywood star announced on Instagram that he will be heading to Dallas in the US on 3 April 2016 for the grand event.
WrestleMania 32 with three goals: Set an attendance record, make history, and electrify. Here's how The Rock captioned his post:
"IT'S OFFICIAL: People's Champ is coming home to do 3 things with THE PEOPLE: Set an ALL-TIME attendance record, ELECTRIFY Dallas like never before & make all time #WRESTLEMANIA history. And we have FUN. Ok that's four things but you know what the hell The Rock's sayin'.. . THANK YOU #WWEUniverse! It's always an honor coming home and I wouldn't miss it for the world."
Since his back-to-back WrestleMania matches against John Cena in 2012-13, The Rock has kept his promise of not completely staying away from WWE action. In an interview earlier this year, The Rock made it clear that a return to the WWE ring is definitely in the pipeline.
"Myself, [WWE chairman Vince McMahon], Triple H have talked about creating something that is amazing," The Rock stated.
"Any time for me, going back into the WWE, especially if it's a match -- and these guys know this because of the open dialogue between me and Triple H -- the question is, can we create, in terms of a promotional scale for the fans, something better than what we did in Miami and back-to-back in New York with John Cena? Can we put together something that's different but equally, if not more, exciting? So there's a lot of elements involved that we continue to talk about and chop up. That's the coolest part about the relationship I have with the McMahons, including Triple H," he added.
