Bringing him back to his roots, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been doing it old-school style since his return to WWE in 2011.
After a successful pro-wrestling career from 1995 to 2004, Johnson took a break from WWE to pursue an acting career with roles in “The Scorpion King,” “Walking Tall,” “Be Cool,” “The Other Guys,” and “Gridiron Gang” among others.
Back in the ring, Johnson has been hyping up feuds with John Cena and CM Punk in particular to bring some buzz around his upcoming fights. But don’t think he’s given up acting for good. In 2013 alone, Johnson has five movies lined up to release including “G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” “Fast Six,” and “Pain & Gain” just to name a few.
WWE Monday Night Raw is returning to First Niagara Center at 7:30 p.m. on March 4. Featured superstars include John Cena, CM Punk, Randy Orton, Sheamus, Ryback, The Big Show, Alberto del Rio, The Miz, Daniel Bryan, Kane, Kofi Kingston and of course, The Rock.
To get a little taste of The Rock’s return, check out this clip of Johnson at an event from earlier this week.
