Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's WWE Return on the cards?
According to reports, The People's Champ will be heading back to WWE this year.
Andrew Zarian of the Mat Men Podcast has reported that the 10-time world champion will be returning at Survivor Series in November, which is being scheduled to be held at the Barclays Centre in New York.

Dwayne has not been seen on WWE television since an episode of Smackdown, on 4th October 2020. He has taken a backseat on the wrestling business and become one of Hollywoods biggest stars, featuring in The Fast and the Furious franchise, Disney's 'Moana', Jumanji, Welcome to the Jungle among many, many others.
Survivor Series also happens to be the 25th anniversary of the great one's debut into WWE, so could we see a tribute show for him, similar to the one held for 'The Undertaker' back in 2015?
After the Survivor Series PPV, Johnson will be appearing on both Monday Night RAW and Friday Night Smackdown. This could possibly be to set up a potential match with The Rock's cousin, Roman Reigns which has been highly speculated to happen at Wrestemania 38 set to be held in Dallas, Texas next year at the AT&T Stadium.
Roman Reigns is currently the WWE Universal Champion and in an ongoing storyline revolving around his family's bloodline of himself, Jimmy and Jey Uso who recently captured the Smackdown Tag Team Championships at the Money in the Bank PPV.
There is absolutely no doubt, that The Rock is one the greatest in ring performers of all time for WWE, and its always great to see him perfom in the ring, even on a very limited basis.
The Rocks Survivor Series appearance could certainly be the moment that kick starts the potential feud between himself and his cousin, Roman.
Personally, however much I enjoy seeing the great one perform in the ring, this is one match that I dont think I would like to see. I cant quite put my finger on why, I just have a feeling it wouldnt be great.
