• Current Plan For The Rock’s WWE Return
As we have noted before, there were rumors that WWE wants to bring The Rock back for Survivor Series 2021, which will be the 25th anniversary of his WWF debut.
Andrew Zarian has now confirmed on The Mat Men Pro Wrestling podcast that WWE is indeed planning The Great One’s return:
“You’ve got a big show in a big building and you’re trying to sell it out. I mean who better than the most electrifying man in sports entertainment. He is definitely Walking Tall, but he was in Get Shorty. Dwayne ‘The Rock’ is expected for Survivor Series. That is the plan.”
Also, the plan for the WrestleMania 38 main event right now is The Rock vs. Roman Reigns:
“By the way, Rock vs. Roman, that is what is soft on paper for the main event in Dallas. I mean, Dallas, 100,000 people, you need the freaking Rock.”

• Old School WWF Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Legend “The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels (Real name: Michael Hickenbottom) turns 56 today.
Shawn Michaels wrestled for Vince McMahon’s World Wrestling Federation from 1988 till 1998 and then (for the renamed WWE) from 2002 until 2010.
Shawn is widely considered one of the greatest professional wrestling superstars of all time, a statement hardly anyone disagrees on.
The Heartbreak Kid has been the leader of arguably the 2 greatest factions in wrestling history: D-Generation X (1997-1998) and the New World Order (2002).
In 2011, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by his close personal friend “The Game” Triple H, but in 2019 Michaels got inducted a second time, this time as a member of D-Generation X.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY HBK!
