• Person Close To The Rock Thinks He Could Wrestle Again
During an interview with TV Insider, Brian Gewirtz (former WWE writer and Executive Producer of Young Rock) talked about the creative process in WWE and The Rock’s future in pro-wrestling.
Below are the highlights:
On the creative process in WWE:
“Things change in a flash. Even when I was there, the process went through so many different changes.
It was basically get with the talent, put something together, make it to television, and we’ll see how the audience reacts and talk about it afterward.
Then as the company became publicly traded there were a lot more eyes on it. It can be a good thing for a show-runner like Vince McMahon. You know what you’re going to get when the show is on the air.
But you can also stifle the creativity a little bit in the wrestling business, which is known for more of the off-the-cuff promo skills like Ric Flair, Randy Savage, Roddy Piper.
The idea of the writer in that era would be laughed at out of the building. I can’t speak to how it exactly works nowadays, but I think it’s a nice mixture where certain talents have gained the trust and leeway with promos while others go through a process.”
On if The Rock will ever wrestle again:
“There are so many factors that go into Dwayne’s appearance in terms of a WWE ring. Between his movie schedule and health. Infamously at WrestleMania against John Cena, it resulted in some pretty horrific injuries that required surgery and the delaying of the Hercules movie at the time.
I also know this is a passion and business he was born into and born with. That never truly goes away. I don’t know if you’ve seen the guy lately, but he is in pretty good shape.
I think he could do it if push came to shove. I think it comes down to what he wants to do and when. It comes down to what Dwayne wants to do. I’m sure WWE would be more than happy to have him.”
