• “It’s very possible” – Triple H On The Rock Returning To WWE For A Match In 2023
Triple H was recently interviewed by BT Sport, where he was asked about fellow WWF Legend The Rock and the ongoing rumors regarding a potential ‘cousin vs. cousin’ main event match against Roman Reigns at WWE WrestleMania 39 at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California on April 2nd (Night 2 of the event).
The Game noted that The Great One might be able to return to WWE in 2023 for a match because of his lighter movie schedule for next year due to the XFL.
Below is what HHH said:
“We’ll have to see what the future holds. A match with The Rock versus Roman Reigns seems to write itself.
The Rock might be able to block off the time, especially with him taking a lighter film schedule, so he can focus on the XFL. It’s very possible that could give Dwayne Johnson the needed free time to have one more WWE angle.
When you are maybe the most recognizable man on the planet, the most famous actor in Hollywood, probably the most in-demand social media influencer out there — you’re busy. That business is fluid. You’re doing something and then 30 seconds later something comes along, and you must do this, and it’s the nature of what you do umm… I thought I had to do this, I gotta do this.
A few years ago, we were gonna have a match at WrestleMania. We shot a video and everything and then the year it happened it changes. The opportunity changed.
I do know this, because I’ve had this conversation with him. At no time when Rock is making a movie in Hollywood does he stand in the position where he pulls off his elbow pads, and he filled by the WWE Universe — there’s nothing else like that on the planet that gives you the rush that he gets when he’s standing in the middle of the ring, so I know he knows that deep inside of him is that burning thing, ‘I gotta feel that one more time, I gotta get in there one more time.’
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 Rock’s last official pro-wrestling match took place at WrestleMania 32 in 2016, when he defeated Wyatt Family member Erick Rowan in an impromptu match in only 6 seconds.
