Before we all knew him as the biggest and one of the most commercially successful film stars of all time, Dwayne Johnson went by the name, of The Rock in the WWF, which today is called WWE. In the professional wrestling scene yet again, he was one of the biggest names during the company’s Attitude Era of stars and match-ups.

And even after leaving his wrestling days behind, the star still makes appearances on Monday Night RAW and SmackDown occasionally, one of which happens to be recently. People were beyond excited to see The Rock make his return to the ring, with anticipation of a match-up between him and Roman Reigns.

But seeing as his days in the business are numbered, the company may just allocate CM Punk to be his next, and probably final opponent.

As the opening week for WWE commenced on Monday this month, fans were shell-shocked to witness the return of Dwayne Johnson, a.k.a. The Rock to the ring, where he flattened former champion Jinder Mahal with his signature The People’s Elbow. Then, he went to make a startling comment that got the fans excited to no end.

As he graced the WWE universe with his presence, the star went on to say that he was going out to dinner and would love to sit at the head of the table. The Head of the Table is the nickname held by the current WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, who also happens to be the star’s cousin. This has sparked the age-old Familial Feud match-up that has been in rumors for years.

But whatever the company decides to do, it has to do fast, since the Moana star’s wrestling days may be coming to an end. In a recent episode of the SmackTalk podcast, former WCW Superstar Dutch Mantell pointed this out, saying:

“They have a lot of doors open to them, and they can go through any one of them and not lose another door. I do think that The Rock, it is getting a little late for him. if he’s got to do something, I think he’s got to do it this year, and I think it’s got to be WrestleMania. And what they do there, I don’t know. That’s up to them. I will actually be interested in seeing that match just to see what kind of finish they’d have.”

Therefore, seeing as this can probably be Johnson’s last appearance as his wrestling persona, the WWE may just shift the match-up to another legend of the industry who just made his comeback as well.
