The UFC Superstar took to Twitter to express his desire for his next brawl. This time, it wasn’t someone from UFC but the former WWE superstar – The Rock. Diaz declared that The Rock is his first and last choice to get involved in a fight with.

“I’m only going to fight The Rock otherwise I’m good,” Nate Diaz’s tweet read. The Hollywood star hasn’t yet responded to Diaz’s tweet. The fans from UFC, WWE and Hollywood are very excited to hear from Dwayne Johnson’s end. If he accepts the call, it is going to be one hell of a match. 

Dwayne Johnson has been a big part of the Hollywood industry now and hardly gets time for in-ring appearances. He took his leave from WWE fights in 2019 but has made multiple appearances for mega events. The fans are always excited to hear from him.

There have been very prominent rumours of The Rock vs Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39. WWE WrestleMania 39 has the tagline ‘WrestleMania goes Hollywood’ and there won’t be a better opportunity for him to get back to the ring.
