The Rock On What It Would Take To Return To WWE, Switching Agents & More

Posted by Matt Boone June 18, 2014 12 Comments

The following are highlights of a new interview with The Rock:

Switching agents and publicists in 2011 after The Tooth Fairy: “It was incredibly difficult because you develop a friendship over the years. But it just dawned on me: Change has to happen.”

Going from wrestling to acting: “I was told that I had to conform to a standard in Hollywood that would beget me more work, better roles. Which meant I had to stop going to the gym, which meant I couldn’t be as big, which meant you had to distance yourself from wrestling. You essentially had to deconstruct yourself. Then that started to not feel good to me. It reached a point of, ‘I’m not feeling authentic.’”

Regarding a WWE return, The Rock noted that the event and the pay must be equal or bigger to his return in 2013 for him to consider it. He spoke about how he continues to work with WWE from time-to-time, but that his primary focus is his acting.

    • WWE doesn’t need the Rock

      So he’s a money whore? Fuck off Rock. If the money means more to you than the fans we don’t want your sorry ass!

      • Smark

        The phrase “money whore” is quite redundant.

      • BITW

        You obviously do want him. Otherwise you wouldn’t waste your time writing hateful comments about him.

        You’ll be the first guy riding his d!$k when he comes back.

    • Rich

      The Rock needs to grow a set and return to the WWE and actually wrestle every week, because lets give it up, his acting career SUCKS!
      …and didn’t the WWE just release like 10 WWE Superstars? What are they doing with all the $ they saved?
