WWE’s annual Survivor Series event took place on Sunday evening, and the show had been built up as the 25th Anniversary of The Rock’s debut. While at no point did WWE declare The Rock would be in attendance, it was firmly believed by many he would make an appearance. However, if you watched the show or read the results, you’ll know his presence wouldn’t electrify those in attendance, and many fans were left tweeting their disappointment resulting in him trending.
Some fans are still hoping The Rock may appear during Raw, although that won’t be happening as he is filming a movie, and current restrictions always made him appearing for WWE impossible. Therefore why WWE went so heavy on hyping up The Rock isn’t clear. Although the obvious speculation is that it was simply done to attract viewers to Survivor Series while receiving payment from Netflix to promote The Rock’s latest movie Red Notice.
The belief is WWE intends to headline WrestleMania 39, which is being marked as WrestleMania Hollywood with The Rock vs. Roman Reigns. Therefore the Hollywood star will likely return to WWE television within the next 15 months to begin building the match. In the meantime, though, fans will have to make do with his movies for their fix.
