Update On The Rock Possibly Appearing At WrestleMania 31, Steve Austin’s Show

– It’s looking more and more like The Rock won’t be able to do WWE’s WrestleMania 31 next year. Rock will be booked all over the world a few weeks before WrestleMania to promote Fast 7. As noted, the movie was recently pushed up to April 3rd from April 10th.

– Steve Austin’s new Broken Skull Challenge was reportedly filmed somewhere in Southern California, not Austin’s actual Broken Skull Ranch in South Texas.

    So Dwayne won’t be able to do WM31? What’s the issue with that? Plenty of people that can step up or legends that can do a guest host role

  • Jonathan Baylor

    So glad. He is just in it for the money.

    I hope he doesn’t return, even if it would be ‘best’ for business, whatever that means now. The lack of dates to work with would hurt whoever he is feuding with especially when it seems he is more committed in making the movie than actually competing in the WWE. Would make more sense for him to stay in Hollywood.

    Anytime the Rock makes an appearance or wrestles a match, it puts asses in the seats and eyes on the TV.

    With the way WWE is literally saving money every way possible, it’s not worth it to pay Rock millions to return. Even if it’s for a match, it wouldn’t be worth it. Even at Wrestlemania I was there live, I was way more excited for Austin then Rock. Rock is awesome but if he doesn’t want to be there unless they pay him to make it worth his while, they don’t need him. They don’t.
