PostSubject: The Rock iS Back_Or Is He?   Thu Mar 18, 2010 12:48 am

Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson catapulted out of professional wrestling and into the mainstream in a way few wrestlers have, and he hasn't looked back. I mean, why humiliate yourself prancing around in tights on cable television when you can humiliate yourself prancing around in tights in Hollywood flicks like The Tooth Fairy?

Johnson hasn't fought in the ring since Wrestlemania XX in 2004 and, with the exception of inducting his father into the WWE Hall of Fame, has made only a few pretaped appearances on WWE programming since.

However, rumors are buzzing that the former University of Miami football player and the pro-wrestling heavyweight champion of the world might return to WWE Raw when the program tapes in Miami June 7.

Apparently, Johnson has been eager to get back to his roots and was looking into "hosting" Raw in January, but explained to Sports Illustrated he had to cancel.

"I do plan on going back and hosting. I was actually gonna go back this month, but the day I was going to host, I had to go to Mexico for promotion of [a] movie, so we had to cancel that," Johnson said.

But he said some sort of temporary return was in the works.

Will Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Makes his Return to WWE in Miami?

I don't think he'll come back when he's making millions doing dodgy comedy movies ...

I would love to see him return, and now he is a big movie star, He can and will demand maximum dollars a week?. I think what he now could be earning in WWE is not chump change and probably over-time not that big of a pay cut to that of starring in movies.

to be honest, he'd easily command $1 million dollars a week. which is roughly what he'd be earning for a movie, providing he was on location once a month or doing promotion/advertising etc.

I remember Goldberg wanted $1 mil a week from the WWE back in 2003, and they didn't respond with an offer that he thought he deserved, so he didn't renew his contract.

7 years later, WWE is going downhill, losing it's legendary status and legendary heroes.

WWE have tried different things to revive what used to be, Ie Giving Sheamus (an obscure wrestler) the WWE championship or trying ECW which was a complete failure.

Only one thing can revive the WWE and that is provided he is used properly to the full potential of his royalness is "Bring Back the Rock"

Rock is 38 or something now, I'd sign him for three or so years, To be honest I can't see him staying at his full marketing potential for the WWE for a long period of time.

WWE need the Rock back to get money back into the business and bide their time in trying a different angle which will bring wrestling back to their glory days.

I know TNA will swoop him up in his 40's when he will start to get useless the days go by.
