• Will The Rock Wrestle At Survivor Series 2021?
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.”
Zarian also reported that The Rock won’t stick to just one brand. He’s set to appear on both RAW & SmackDown:
“I can tell you, USA Network tentatively wants him on that Monday. By the way, he’s gonna go everywhere. This isn’t like a RAW storyline. He’s going to be on everything.”
There were rumors that The Rock might wrestle at Survivor Series 2021, by Zarian is reporting that there are no plans for him to wrestle this year (as of this writing).

• Old School NWA Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School NWA Veteran Al Pérez celebrates his 61st birthday today.
Al Pérez wrestled for several territories during the 80s & early 90s, including Jim Crockett Promotions, Mid-South Wrestling, World Class Championship Wrestling, World Wrestling Council, Professional Wrestling Federation, World Championship Wrestling, Global Wrestling Federation, … and even had a short stint in the World Wrestling Federation.
He also portrayed The Black Scorpion in 1990, before Ric Flair was revealed to be under the mask at the end of Starrcade.
Al (in his prime) facially resembles current WWE wrestler Seth Rollins so much, that it’s safe to say: If Rollins actually had the body of a (heavyweight) professional wrestler, that’s exactly how he’d look like.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AL PEREZ!
