WWE: Disappointing update on The Rock at WrestleMania 32

Published 1 Comments

Football News

Considering the WWE have high hopes that WrestleMania 32 will be a record-breaking show, the organization's hierarchy must be tearing their hair out at recent developments.

Right now, it feels like every week a Superstar is being ruled out of a match at next April's AT&T Stadium event. In the wake of Stone Cold, Seth Rollins and Rob Van Dam seeing a red mark put through their name, the most recent big name star added to that list was The Rock.

Reports last week suggested an issue with insurance will prevent The Rock from working 'Mania 32, but there had been hopes the Superstar-turned-Hollywood star would still be able to be involved in a non-wrestling role. Unfortunately for WWE fans, even that now seems highly unlikely.

As reported by NoDq.com, it looks like Dwyane 'The Rock' Johnson's commitments to Hollywood are to blame yet again.

Per the report:

"Those close to The Rock are now saying it's doubtful that he'll be able to even appear at the show at all as he has a movie filming during WrestleMania weekend."

The Rock's hectic life as a Hollywood A-lister means he is almost constantly involved in a project. Unfortunately for the WWE Universe, the one that falls in April 2016 doesn't appear to be being filmed around the Texas area.

Slim chance

It's not all doom and gloom, however, according to another source. Wrestling Inc. has noted that, although getting the future Hall of Famer to 'Mania 32 would be "challenging to pull off" it isn't totally impossible.

Considering the way things are going at present, Vince McMahon would probably be willing to do all it takes to get The Rock to WrestleMania 32 even if there was only a one-percent chance of pulling it off.
