In case you didn't know...

The Rock grew into a household name at the peak of the Attitude Era. He would leave the ring behind and embark on a career in Hollywood and is currently one of the most recognizable faces in the whole world.

He was last seen at WrestleMania 32 when he pinned Erick Rowan in record time. The Rock remains a big advocate for WWE despite his critical acclaim. Fans have wanted him to return to the ring for a long time now.

The heart of the matter

The Tweet in question just says 'appearances' and not matches per se. However, this does not rule out the possibility of The Rock competing with some of the topmost stars in the roster right now in a battle of the generations.

The Rock was part of arguably the biggest 'battle of the generations' when he took on Hulk Hogan in 2002. Could he enter into battle with a fellow Samoan in Roman Reigns, a man whom even he could not get over after the travesty that was Royal Rumble 2015 in Philadelphia? There are a bunch of other superstars that he could also engage in battle with!

What's next?

Who knows if WWE and The Rock have arrived at any sort of consensus at all about future appearances? One thing's for sure...The Rock's return will be quite massive indeed. And he will make you all smell what he's cooking!
