Last Friday, September 15th, WWE experienced a historic moment with The Rock’s return to the company. The actor and former wrestler appeared on SmackDown to confront Austin Theory, who had been mocking him in recent weeks.
Theory had been introduced as a protégé of Vince McMahon and had bragged that he would one day be as big as The Rock.
The Rock’s return was a surprise for fans, who received him with a standing ovation. The Rock turned to Theory and told him that he wasn’t someone to make fun of. Theory then attempted to attack The Rock, but was quickly stopped. Still, Theory wants the fight, as he expressed on his Instagram.
“Give the people what they want.”
Impact of The Rock’s return
The Rock’s return was an exciting moment for WWE. The Rock is one of the most popular Superstars in the company’s history, and his appearance on SmackDown sparked a huge reaction from fans and on social media.
The fight between The Rock and Theory would be an event of great significance for the young fighter, who had not yet established himself as a dominant figure in the ring.
The Rock’s return is also a good sign for the WWE. The company has grown in popularity in recent months, but The Rock’s return alongside John Cena could help accelerate its push.
Possible opponents for The Rock
Besides Austin Theory, there are other wrestlers who could be The Rock’s opponents in the future, possibly WrestleMania. Roman Reigns, the current WWE Universal Champion, would be an obvious choice given his family ties. Brock Lesnar, another former Universal Champion, would also be an interesting opponent since he met Rock many years ago.
Other possible options include Drew McIntyre, Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens. All of these fighters are talented and popular, and a match with The Rock would be a new combination for fans.
