Entertainment Weekly is featuring an article regarding the return of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to WWE this past week during Monday Night Raw.
“At the moment he’ll only cop to hosting Wrestlemania on April 3, but of course he’s going to wind up in the ring — and count me among those fans who feels a thrilling jolt at the idea of seeing The Rock once again kick some jabroni ass. I used to love wrestling — so much so that I co-wrote EW’s 1999 cover story on the popularity of pro wrestling, and even went to see The Rock destroy Triple H in a ladder match at Madison Square Garden lo these many years ago. And Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was a big reason — perhaps the biggest reason — I was a wrestling fan. Say what you want about the concept of “sports entertainment,” but true star power can shine through even the most ridiculous of scenarios, and from the very first time he stepped into the ring in 1996, The Rock was clearly a star.”
