There will come a time when The Rock will no longer be a part of WWE. While the wrestler turned actor is a once-in-a-while participant at WrestleMania or on a random Monday Night Raw, there is always hope that The Brahma Bull will lace up his boots and try to beat someone’s candy ass.
If The Rock formally announced he had one more match left in his career, there would be a rush of euphoria to make sure the last time we saw him in the ring was memorable.
The recent matches with CM Punk and John Cena proved the man who proclaimed himself as the most electrifying man in sports entertainment could still bring the crowds to their feet and could still deliver a knockout promo. The Rock is still must-see television.
As other wrestlers from the Attitude Era continue to hang up their boots and move on to other chapters in their lives, there will be a time when a formal announcement made of one more match. Fans of my generation will be reminded that the new stars of this business are taking it over in light speed. The 40-something wrestler will soon be obsolete.
In any event, here are five wrestlers who could serve as the opponent for The Rock’s final match.
#1. Triple H
This match that could have happened at WrestleMania 32, but sadly it didn’t. When The Rock came out of the stands at WrestleMania 31 with Ronda Rousey, it was all but on for a mega tag team match. It turned out to be a huge dud. There is a history between these two as they helped define the Attitude Era.
The Rock has come back from acting in Hollywood to challenge John Cena twice and CM Punk once. He was in outstanding shape. There is no fear of Triple H having to carry his opponent and as you know, the former WWE World Champion will be ready to deliver a five-star match.
