Triple H opens the possibility for The Rock to return at WrestleMania 39

WrestleMania 39 is scheduled for April 1 and 2 in Inglewood, California.


Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson hasn't thrown a People's Elbow for a while now. This has left us fans wondering when The People's Champ will come back to the WWE. Unfortunately, The Rock is the only one who can answer that question.

The Rock played himself in 2019's Fighting with My Family.

However, it appears that Triple H, the newly-instated creative head of the WWE, is more than happy to give The Rock the spotlight once again whenever he wants.

In an interview with Ariel Helwani of BT Sport, Triple H covered several topics, including a potential appearance of The Rock as soon as April.

Here's an excerpt of what Triple H shared in the interview:

He looks like a million bucks, but believe me, you look as good as you are, when you hit that canvas then stuff starts to fall off of you. The clock is ticking, but if there is a time it is becoming now, and I know there is a burning desire for him to take advantage of that time. It’s just a matter of can he harness the other things to focus on that long enough to get it done.

The success of Black Adam will likely determine how busy The Rock will get over the next decade.

Triple H is no stranger to taking a hiatus only to come back and compete again. Triple H had sporadic appearances in the WWE in his later years as he slowly transitioned towards a more executive role. The now-retired professional wrestler officially retired in March and he later appeared during the second night of WrestleMania 38 a week after with a symbolic in-ring retirement.

On the other hand, The Rock has not officially retired yet. But, the 50-year-old Hollywood superstar hasn't wrestled since 2016 after beating Erick Rowan at WrestleMania 32. Before that, The Rock's last "real" match was in 2013 when he lost to John Cena at WrestleMania 29.

In total, The Rock has only wrestled just seven times since 2003 after he made the full dive into his acting career.

However, The Rock is still synonymous with WWE. People will watch him wherever he goes just because of who he is. It will be a huge missed opportunity if The Rock doesn't take the time to go back and lace his boots once again if only for one last time. Also, it would be a huge win for Triple H to back one of wrestling's all-time greats one last time less than a year into his new role as the Chief Content Officer of WWE.

Until then, fans of The Rock can look forward to watching him make his debut in the DCEU as Black Adam on October 21.
