The Rock Says He’s “Very Open” To Wrestling Again



Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson says he’s “very open” to wrestling again after returning to World Wrestling Entertainment last month.

The host of WrestleMania XXVII appeared on Piers Morgan Tonight tonight on CNN. Piers Morgan asked Johnson whether he plans on wrestling again.

“I’m open to it,” Johnson said.

Morgan asked, “You are?”

“Very open to it. Sure. I’ve always been open to it,” he replied.

“When I left wrestling seven years ago, at that time, two things happened. I accomplished everything I wanted to accomplish in wrestling and I also wanted to become a good actor. In order to do that, I felt, I needed to concentrate solely and commit myself to acting.”

The approximate 30 minute interview, which was taped two days earlier in New York City, featured Johnson reflecting his life, career and future aspirations. It opened with a discussion of Johnson’s background and his connection to United States President Barack Obama due to both sharing similar backgrounds. A clip of Johnson portraying “The Rock Obama” two years ago on Saturday Night Live aired.

Johnson was asked to comment on running for a political office in the future and he said he could see it happening in the future after his career in entertainment.

The second segment focused on Johnson’s careers in professional wrestling and film. A clip of Johnson’s return promo to WWE aired with Johnson shown watching it.

Johnson reflected on his future aspirations in the third segment. He discussed his family upbringing, repairing his relationship with his father, and setting new goals for himself, such as winning an Academy Award.
