Dwayne Johnson’s recent WWE return was a complete secret

Dwayne Johnson recently made his return to WWE and surprised a lot of fans because it was a clandestine operation. The Rock had a segment with Austin Theory.

The Rock was a recent guest on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. There he explained how he made a phone call to Nick Khan and it all came together. On that day, SmackDown was held in Denver, and Johnson was nearby. This prompted the phone call to Khan, which made it all possible.

So I called my buddies at WWE, Nick Khan, and I said, 'Hey man, I heard SmackDown's here. Can you confirm that?" He said it is. I said, 'Good. Well, The Rock is coming to SmakcDown.' And I went out there and it was incredible. They had no idea, and you guys know how hard it is to keep a secret. This was a full-on secret. The people went nuts; 13000 people sounded like 1,30,000 people, and it was just incredible.

There has been a lot of speculation about The Rock facing his brother Roman Reigns for the ultimate leadership and the top prize in the industry at WrestleMania, but it seems near impossible because of his hectic work schedule.
