The Rock recently discussed his WWE return in an interview with ESPN. His last match was in 2013 against John Cena at WrestleMania 29.

According to the article, The Rock set up a training camp for his upcoming Wrestlemania 40 tag team match, utilizing rings in Los Angeles and Hawaii. The Rock trained with NXT’s Gallus to prepare for his return to the ring. Here are the highlights:

What he’s been doing in training: “Suplexes, a launch off the top rope, a catch, like bodies hitting bodies. It’s things like that that you have to do and have to prepare for. And you’re getting bruised up, you’re hitting the ropes. It comes back fairly quick. … It’s like riding a bike.”

Working hard for the match: “Fortunately for me, very lucky in that I became somewhat of a ring general where I see the circumference of the ring and where I need to be usually timing wise. Because timing is really important in our business of wrestling. So, just putting in the work, training, the diet begins, which always sucks. And taking the falls and just getting my ass kicked every day. So, we’ll see how it goes.”

Why he came back now: “I was excited to work with [Nick], Ari and Mark Shapiro to help expand the WWE/TKO business to new heights. That relationship that I have with Nick has certainly helped propel a lot of this forward. Even though things didn’t work out philosophically for us to get the deal done for WrestleMania 39 at SoFi Stadium, that allowed this incredible opportunity for Cody Rhodes to come in. And as we are feeling and sensing and hearing from his passionate fans … what an incredible opportunity for him.”

The Rock, also known as Dwayne Johnson, has recently opened up about his return to the WWE in an interview with ESPN. The iconic wrestler and Hollywood star last competed in a match in 2013 against John Cena at WrestleMania 29. Fans have eagerly awaited his return to the ring, and The Rock has been working hard to prepare for his upcoming tag team match at WrestleMania 40.

To get back into wrestling shape, The Rock has set up a training camp in both Los Angeles and Hawaii. He has been training with NXT’s Gallus to ensure he is fully prepared for his return. The Rock has been focusing on various aspects of wrestling during his training, including suplexes, launching off the top rope, and catching opponents in mid-air. He acknowledges that these moves require practice and preparation, but he is confident that it will all come back to him quickly, comparing it to riding a bike.

The Rock emphasizes the importance of timing in wrestling and mentions that he has developed a keen sense of the ring’s circumference and where he needs to be during a match. This experience as a “ring general” has given him an advantage in his training. He is dedicated to putting in the work, following a strict diet, and enduring the physical toll that comes with wrestling. The Rock admits that getting his “ass kicked” every day is part of the process, but he is determined to give his best performance.

When asked about why he chose to return to the WWE now, The Rock explains that he was excited to work with individuals like Nick Khan, Ari Emanuel, and Mark Shapiro to expand the WWE/TKO business. Although a deal for WrestleMania 39 at SoFi Stadium did not work out, this setback allowed an incredible opportunity for Cody Rhodes.
