For the first time since 2019, The Rock is back on WWE TV!

Pat McAfee returned to WWE TV to kick off tonight’s SmackDown. Austin Theory interrupted him and he isn’t happy to see McAfee back.

For those who don’t remember, McAfee beat Theory at WrestleMania 38.

After a few minutes of back and forth trash talk, The Rock came out! This is The Rock’s first appearance in WWE in 4 years! You can watch it below:

Theory asked Rock if he knows whose ring he is in and Rock told him to shut his b*tch a$$ up! Rock said Theory doesn’t know how this works and then removed his jacket, and said finally he’s come back to Denver!

Theory then said finally the people get to see Rock and ‘Austin’ back in the ring, but it’s not the old Stone Cold.

The Rock then said “The Rock says” and Theory cut him off by saying it’s doesn’t matter what The Rock says. The Rock then said it actually matters. Rock then said if Stone Cold was here, he’d ask the fans to give him a Hell Yeah if they want him to beat this jabroni’s a$$.

Rock then got the fans to chant “you are an a$$hole” at Theory. Theory got mad and shouted at the fans to shut up.

The Rock said he has a theory of his own and he’s going to beat Theory’s a$$ in 3 seconds for running down the people. Theory then attacked Rock, but Rock fired back with a few shots and a Spine Buster, followed by the most electrifying move in all of entertainment – The People’s Elbow!

Rock then told McAfee to hit a People’s Elbow as well and he did it!

Later in a backstage segment, The Rock thanked McAfee and then reunited with John Cena. Rock and Cena shook hands and hugged. You can watch it below:

As soon as this happened, IMPACT Wrestling’s Twitter account cashed in on this opportunity.

They posted footage of the only time The Great One appeared on their programming, when Rock recorded a video to talk about his WrestleMania 14 opponent Ken Shamrock, prior to Shamrock’s induction into the IMPACT Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2020.

You can watch it below:

The Rock also reunited with his old rival / friend Triple H (who’s the Chief Content Officer in WWE now) backstage:
