The Rock will not be wrestling at WrestleMania 32

The WWE Universe was set ablaze earlier in the year - when it was revealed that The Rock would be making his return to the company at WrestleMania 32.

People were dreaming up potential fantasy bookings, with Rocky coming back to take on Triple H, or his cousin Roman Reigns, or maybe face Brock Lesnar or Stone Cold Steve Austin.

However, it has now been revealed that none of these huge events will be happening. That's because The Rock isn't actually allowed to wrestle.

That is according to a report from Dave Meltzer in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, via NoDQ, who says that insurance issues mean that Rocky can't compete inside the squared circle.

The insurance issues are related to The Rock’s role in the new Baywatch movie. He can’t take the risk of getting injured around the movie’s shooting schedule.

The WWE are desperate to make this 'Mania the biggest of all-time, so have a major role planned for the star of TV and the big screen. 

It seems more and more likely that he will take his place in Reigns' corner as the former Shield member looks set to face Triple H - potentially for the WWE Championship - in the conclusion of his storyline with Vince McMahon and The Authority, with Vince being in HHH's corner.

The Rock won't be the only WWE legend there, though, with Stone Cold all but confirming that he would be making an appearance and has some plans in the works with the creative team. Austin probably won't wrestle either and it is truly a mystery as to what he will be doing come April 3rd.
