Legendary wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson made an incredible return to WWE on Friday Night Smackdown, awestrucking thousands of fans at Ball Arena in Denver, Colorado, who greeted him with a deafening ovation as his signature music played.
The Rock made an unexpected return in an exciting segment where he appeared as a special guest to Pat McAfee, who also returned to action after an injury. Together they confronted Austin Theory, who had previously made fun of McAfee.
Theory tried to disparage “The Great One” with provocative words until the legendary wrestler’s patience reached its limit and he attacked his rival, whom he finished off with his famous move, the “People’s Elbow”, which caused fan frenzy .
The surprise and excitement of seeing The Rock back in the WWE ring lit up the evening on Smackdown and left fans excited for future appearances from the American wrestling icon.
Finn Bálor triumphs over AJ Styles
In addition to the exciting return of The Rock, the show also featured an exciting match between AJ Styles and Finn Bálor.
From the start, both fighters showed off their skills in the ring with a series of shocking moves, but it was Finn Bálor who managed to stay in control. Despite Damian and Dominik’s efforts to intervene, the referee immediately expelled them from the ring.
The disruption was caused by the arrival of Jimmy Uso, who ran to the ring to distract AJ Styles. Finn took the opportunity to do a quick roll-up on Styles and secured the victory with a count of three.
