Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Announces Return to WrestleMania


Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is going to be back to his roots. The wrestler-turned-actor announced on Monday, December 28 that he would be making appearance at WrestleMania 32 in April.

Johnson took to Instagram to spread the good news to his fans. “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,” he wrote.

He also expressed his excitement to be back on the show on Twitter. “I can’t wait. We have a big and history making night planned. And a fistful of fun,” so he tweeted, adding the hashtag “Electrifying.”

WrestleMania 32 will take place in Dallas at the AT&T Stadium on Sunday, April 3, 2016. There’s no word if The Rock will fight another wrestler or he will simply make appearance before the crowd at the upcoming show.

In other news, the “Furious 7” actor recently gave his uncle Tonga a new truck as a Christmas gift. “Merry Christmas Uncle Tonga – enjoy your new truck!” he wrote in a caption of a photo collage posted on Instagram, showing a Ford truck.

He went on sharing about his uncle, “My Uncle Tonga is a family man, humble man and champion. Most importantly one of the greatest human beings I know. So we walk outside and I said ‘Uncle how do you like my truck?’ He said, ‘Whoooaaa nephew it’s beautiful… I love it!’ I said ‘Good ’cause it’s yours.’ He was speechless. Thru tears (manly of course;) we monster hugged ’cause I’ll never forget what he did for me when I had nothing.”

The 43-year-old hunk, who just welcomed a daughter, Jasmine, with girlfriend Lauren Hashian earlier this month, also praised his uncle on Twitter. “If he hadn’t given me his trunks when I was broke, I never would’ve had my @WWE tryout. Rest is history. #Family,” he tweeted.
