Update – Between The Rock and a Hard Place – The WWE

Dwayne Johnson The Rock

As some of you may know, there is some serious friction between Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and The WWE right now. Both the WWE’s management and even the top wrestlers. John Cena touched on the issue recently during an interview published in the UK Sun where he asked why Rock couldn’t attend more WWE events.

It seems The Rock has rejected many of The WWE’s invitations to events since he left the company and landed in Hollywood – and that doesn’t sit well with John Cena, Vince McMahon, Triple H or Steve Austin, just to name a few. Everyone feels that Rock should do more to “pay back” the company, and the fans that helped him become a star.

There are a number of people within the WWE who sympathize with Rock’s situation however. Since he has become a hot name in Hollywood, he could be advised to distance himself from pro wrestling. Now that the Rock makes a lot more money with movies than he did with wrestling, he would obviously want to do what takes care of his family best.

From The Texas Rattlesnake’s perspective however, he has said he wishes he was in the physical condition to continue wrestling. So it’s hard for him to understand why someone like Dwayne Johnson wouldn’t want to do more in wrestling. Austin’s lengthy list of injuries probably won’t allow him to wrestle another full-length match. Rock and Austin haven’t stayed in touch with each other over the last few years and there was reportedly some friction between the two at the Hall of Fame ceremony on Saturday night.

One source at the WWE mentioned Rock might be returning to the ring at WrestleMania 25, but said that the chances of it happening are pretty slim if for no other reason than his busy filming schedule.
