WWE: The Rock suggests epic WrestleMania 32 return

WrestleMania 31 was an instant classic that was loved by everybody who watched it and will go down as one of the best of all-time.

Wrestling legend Sting competed in his first ever WWE match, which saw D-Generation X and some WCW legends come out as well, while Seth Rollins became the first ever star to cash in Money in the Bank briefcase at a 'Mania, using it to beat Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns to become WWE Champion.

But, despite how great 31 was, the WWE are apparently planning for WrestleMania 32 to blow it out of the water.

The Rock Returns?

And they could be starting with one legend making an incredible return. According to an interview with Sports Illustrated, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson confirmed that he was in talks with Vince McMahon and Triple H about making a return in Dallas, Texas - the scene of next year's 'Mania.

“Myself, Vince, Triple H have talked about creating something that is amazing,” Johnson revealed.

“Any time for me, going back into the WWE, especially if it’s a match – and these guys know this because of the open dialogue between me and Triple H – the question is, can we create, in terms of a promotional scale for the fans, something better than what we did in Miami and back-to-back in New York with John Cena?" he went on to add.

Something is certain, the WWE are doing all they can to get The Rock to smell what they are cooking up for potentially the biggest WrestleMania of all time.

“Look, the platform is there,” said Johnson. “You have Dallas and could set an attendance record, so that’s the first goal. And then what is the match that allows us to do that? I’ve had incredible matches with Triple H, so I’m not ruling it out, but I’m not saying it is going to happen.

“We continue to talk about it, and we’re still shooting each other text messages. He sent me a message from Dallas that said, ‘This could be us. The record is ours.’ So we’ll see.”

Stone Cold As Well?

Another Attitude Era star that could return alongside The Rock is "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, a Texas native who the WWE are also reportedly trying to convince to make a return in his home state. 

We have written previously that Austin seemed to confirm he would be in attendance at the event, but it wasn't 100% known if that would be in a wrestling role or as a host.

"Now with WrestleMania XXXII coming up in Texas, I would be pretty damn sure I'm going to be there. It's my home state and it just makes more sense," Austin said in an interview.

If the WWE managed to get Austin and The Rock to wrestle on the same card then WrestleMania 32 would go down in history as the best, of that there is no doubt.
