WWE legend Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has revealed that there is no legal agreements between himself and World Wrestling Entertainment.

The People's Champ is known for making dramatic returns to the squared circle, with a shock appearance at this year's WrestleMania one of the highlights for WWE fans across the globe.

The Rock turned up and had a very quick match with Erick Rowan, hitting him with a Rock Bottom and picking up the quickest win in WrestleMania history, beating Sheamus' record over Daniel Bryan.

That wasn't all for The Rock that evening, however, as The Wyatt Family soon circled the ring, only for The Brahma Bull to be helped out by John Cena.

There is no doubting that The Rock will continue to make dramatic returns to WWE, the place he calls home, but after talking to 'Newsweek', the 44-year-old has revealed there are no contractual obligations between the two parties.

It's been a long time since The Rock had a long stay with the WWE, and even when he was the WWE World Champion, he still remained a part-time wrestler and a part-time figure on the screen.

Due to his numerous movie roles and TV bookings, The Rock doesn't have time to be a full-time WWE superstar anymore, and that could be one reason why he's still over with the fans when he returns, because they know it's likely to be a one-off.

Speaking with Newsweek, The Rock revealed that he has no legal agreement with WWE, but because of his relationship with Vince McMahon, he knows that he can trust him with just one handshake, rather than a full-length contract.

He said: ”We have no legal agreements between us.

"With Vince McMahon we’ve always been able to shake hands. That’s a very special relationship in this day and age, that we can operate with that level of trust.”

The Rock then continued to discuss his relationship with Vince, and admitted that he learnt a lot from the chairman.

“He has taught me some amazing lessons that we use [today] as far as taking care of the audience and being an audience-driven company. He’s helped raise the lion is how he looks at it.”
