During an appearance on Live With Kelly And Ryan, The Rock spoke about his WWE career and how much he misses it. However, he also said that he quietly retired from professional wrestling.
“I miss wrestling, I love wrestling. Yes, I do.”
“I quietly retired from wrestling because I was lucky enough to have just a really wonderful career and accomplish what I wanted to accomplish, but there’s nothing like a live crowd, a live audience, a live microphone as you both know. Plus, I grew up in wrestling. For a lot of you guys that don’t know, my grandfather wrestled, my dad as well, my whole family. And I actually had my very first match ever in the WWE, was in Madison Square Garden and it was a big pay-per-view, and it was funny because I credit my time and my journey in pro wrestling to getting me to where I am at today,”
The Ringside View: Fans all over would surely love to have The Great One back in the ring especially with all the great new talent in WWE. Matches with guys like AJ Styles, The Fiend Bray Wyatt and Ricochet would be something special. Although The Rock is one of the busiest stars in the world he’s still very involved with WWE and there’s always a chance that he could come back for another run or a match at WrestleMania.
