• Big Name Rumored To Appear At Survivor Series 2018
According to Joe Peisich of the No Holds Barred podcast, he has heard that The Rock might appear at Survivor Series 2018 PPV in Los Angeles, California.
The Rock’s appearance isn’t confirmed, Joe has only heard about this possible plan.
WWE officials tried to get The Rock to appear on SmackDown 1000 last night, but his busy schedule didn’t allow it.
Huge #SD1000 congrats to my @WWE family!
Fun fact, in 1998, I said to @VinceMcMahon “I’m gonna use the word ‘Smackdown’ tonight in my promo”. He said what’s that mean? I said it means I’m gonna whup some ass. He belly laughed and said say it!
The rest was history! #IfYaSmell ? https://t.co/IVXI0WkkGl
