The Rock made a sensational return to WWE on Monday Night Raw, proving to be the highlight of what was an otherwise boring show.
The People's Champion told Miz to go park his truck for him, had a chat with Rick Ross, made Big Show break a laptop in half in anger, and had a rather raunchy conversation about Lana - all before he had even gotten to the ring.
When Rocky did finally make his way down inside the squared circle he immediately went off-script, going over to talk to some fans at ringside who were in fancy dress. Apparently, this has angered WWE officials.

The four fans in the front row were dressed as Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, The Rock and The Undertaker, respectively.
"Apparently the guy dressed as Savage kept standing up and doing the Savage twirl and other things to draw attention," NoDQ wrote. "This led to "Randy Savage" chants, and some backstage were not fond of that. After the Kane - Bray Wyatt match, security asked them to cut it out."
"At one point during the show they were taken out but let back in after they were told to cut it out. The Rock saw this in the middle of his interview and decided to go off script and talk to them."
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that there were people backstage freaking out over the incident. The feeling is anyone else short of John Cena would have been fired for an incident like that, but what can they do? It's The Rock. He can do whatever he wants, go over in time, vary from the script, etc.
The Rock single-handedly gave RAW ratings a huge boost by his mere presence. If the WWE want to reduce his mic time or tell him to stay on script then that is only their loss - as Rocky speaking to the fans only made it more entertaining.
