Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson via Twitter when responding to fan questions regarding his statements earlier in the year that he would never leave WWE again:

“A few years ago when Cena – inexplicably – started talking trash publicly, I knew then I could turn this into a massive main event. One that could elevate the WWE to unprecedented heights. The timing had to be right though. Wrestlemania 27: for me and the fans – the time was right. The build to Wrestlemania 28 will be like nothing the world has ever seen before.

The match itself will be historic. I didn’t come back to the WWE to become champion again. I came back for these reasons: entertain the fans like no-one else can. Elevate the WWE to new heights never seen before. Challenge and mentor some of the younger talent. Give the millions what they want which is to kick John Cena’s f’n ass.

I never meant to mislead of confuse the fans and I apologize if I did. The overall goal was to make huge impact and elevate WrestleMania. Shoot my movie commitments, then return as soon as I wrap the film and help elevate the WWE and the overall business of professional wrestling.”
