Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson delighted the WWE Universe this week when he announced he'd be coming back to the organization for next April's WrestleMania 32.
Reports today, however, have revealed that 'The People's Champ' is set to get back to his Hollywood day job in 2016, and he could well be joined by two fellow WWE legends.
According to NoDq, citing LawyerHerald, Johnson, Stone Cold Steve Austin and Hulk Hogan are set to join forces for the fourth instalment of the Expendables franchise.

Austin is no stranger to the series, having appeared in the original Expendables movie in 2010 and it would be safe to assume he will be reprising the character of 'Paine' for the latest offering.
And, although Johnson and Hogan will be joining the likes of Stallone, Statham and a whole host of other action heroes for the first time, they aren't exactly novices when it comes to the movie business.
Johnson has become one of Hollywood's most well-paid actors since leaving the WWE, whilst Hogan has starred in Rocky III amongst others projects in the past.
One final tidbit from today's rumors is that Hogan, currently blackballed from the WWE after his racist remarks became public earlier this year, could be Expendable 4's main villain.
One thing is for sure, if the rumors do prove to be correct and The Rock, Stone Cold and Hogan join the cast, the already successful franchise is set to benefit from the combined support of the wrestling fanbase.
