Below are some top news stories of the day, involving The Rock and Goldberg.

• The Rock will return to the ring this Saturday night at WrestleMania 40, where he will compete in the biggest tag team match in WWE history.

He will team up with WWE Champion Roman Reigns to take on Cody Rhodes and World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins.

After WrestleMania, The Rock will be going off WWE TV to film a movie.

Here’s what WWE President Nick Khan said on The Town podcast:

“That was the whole thing. No question, by the way, it’s one of the great career pivots that I’ve seen. So even, you talk about the kids movies, he was also like in the Get Shorty sequel. Which, if you’re like, I didn’t even know there was a Get Shorty sequel. He was in that. He had slimmed down considerably.

It wasn’t the right role for him. And boom, he came back as, okay, I’m going to be the leading man who I am. (His next film) Smashing Machine. So it’s his first, I think from what I understand, like not a 100 million dollar picture since he’s become a big megastar.

So he goes into that a week or two after WrestleMania. Yeah. And then goes into live Moana after that, which knock on wood should be a big hit.”

• During an interview on the Drinkin’ Bros. podcast, Goldberg made an interesting revelation:

“Ric Flair was my brother’s roommate in college. I can tell you some stories about Ric to where you would think that him being The Nature Boy was crazy.

He was kicked off the football team and wasn’t in school and lived during the summer with my brother when his parents thought he was still on the team and enrolled.”
