• WWE Wants The Rock At Survivor Series 2021
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE wants to have The Rock appear at Survivor Series 2021 pay-per-view in November (which is expected to take place in Brooklyn).
No word yet on why they want him to appear on that show (for a match, to build an angle, or just a one-off appearance), but they most likely want him there because Survivor Series 2021 will mark 25 years since The Rock’s WWF debut, which took place at Survivor Series 1996.
This has obviously begun speculation that WWE could be planning to have Roman Reigns vs. The Rock in the main event of WrestleMania 38, and this appearance could result in that angle kicking off.
“The hope is for Dwayne Johnson to make an appearance at that show but that isn’t locked in, but the hope is for around that time. If he’s involved that would make it a huge show and it would lead credence to Reigns vs. Johnson for WrestleMania.”
It should be noted that WrestleMania 38 will take place at the AT&T Stadium and in order to sell it out and have 100,000+ fans in attendance once again (like WrestleMania 32), WWE needs to book a very strong main event, and at this point there’s no bigger match than The Rock vs. Roman Reigns, especially with Reigns’ Tribal Chief / Head Of The Table storyline going on.
We’ll keep you updated regarding this on our App.
The Rock last appeared on WWE programming on the October 4, 2019 episode of SmackDown (SmackDown’s first show on FOX under their new deal).

• Old School NWA Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School NWA Legend Magnum T.A. (Real name: Terry Allen) celebrates his 62nd birthday today.
The story of Magnum T.A. is actually a very sad one as he was supposed to become the NWA’s counterpart to the WWF’s Hulk Hogan, which means that he had the potential to not only become the face of the company but could’ve even turned Jim Crockett Promotions into a serious competitor against the World Wrestling Federation during the 80s.
Magnum was already booked to defeat “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship in the main event of the Starrcade 1986 PPV, but unfortunately had a car accident a few weeks before the event, in which he suffered several injuries that forced him to end his professional wrestling career.
It’s safe to say that history would’ve been different if that accident had never happened. Who knows? It’s quite possible that Jim Crockett Promotions wouldn’t have needed to sell to Turner in late 1988, so people like Jim Herd, who ruined a lot for a lot of people, never would’ve gotten hired. One can only dream.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAGNUM T.A.!
