Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has teased an epic match as he returns to WWE for WrestleMania 32. There's absolutely no doubt that a Triple H vs The Rock match will work as the biggest draw for the next WrestleMania set to take place in 2016.
The Fast and Furious star and Triple H have gone head-to-head twice over the last year, first backstage in October 2014 and then again with Ronda Rousey (UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion) and Stephanie McMahon (WWE chief brand officer and Triple H's wife) by their respective sides at WrestleMania 31, held earlier this year.

Since his back-to-back WrestleMania matches against John Cena in 2012 and 2013, The Rock has kept his promise to not stray too far from all the WWE action. During an interview with SI to promote his upcoming summer blockbuster, San Andreas, 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."
"...Look, the platform is there. You have Dallas and could set an attendance record, so that's the first goal. And then what is the match that allows us to do that? I've had incredible matches with Triple H, so I'm not ruling it out, but I'm not saying it is going to happen. We continue to talk about it, and we're still shooting each other text messages. He sent me a message from Dallas that said, 'This could be us. The record is ours.' So we'll see," The Rock added.
