The Rock Returns To WWE RAW

The Rock is back! Dwayne Johnson made a surprise return to the WWE on Monday Night RAW. The Rock confronted Rusev and Lana in what was the only bright spot of Monday’s show. Is this a one-night stand or will we be seeing more of the Great One?

This was one of the rare occasions where the WWE was able to pull off a surprise without a whole lot of leaks prior to the segment. Now there were numerous reports that the Rock was in New York on Monday. However, nobody was able to predict exactly how this all played out and many were skeptical it would lead to a WWE appearance and thank goodness it did.

Where do we go from here? Is this the start of a long road to WrestleMania 31? Dave Meltzer on his F4WOnline.com podcast noted that while a Rusev vs. Rock match at Mania is possible, it is far from booked. Meltzer noted that while possible, nothing is set in stone for the Rock to return at Mania. I would think that if Rock returned at Mania to wrestle that it would be in a far bigger match than Rusev.

I still think the betting line is a Rock vs. Brock match at Mania if Rock comes back. The match makes sense and it is probably the only match you could give both guys at this point that would make sense financially. Although that said, I still think an Undertaker vs. Brock rematch would be big, big money.

The WWE desperately needed that boost from The Rock. Other than Dean Ambrose, the company is really struggling in creative. The storylines aren’t clicking and you saw an entire arena turn on most of the show Monday, sans a few segments like the Rock’s. Not that a one-night return of the Rock is going to turn things around, maybe it will somehow motivate the creative team to give the fans what the fans want and not want creative wants.

A novel idea isn’t it?
