One of the globally best known characters initially thanks to pro-wrestling and then thanks to Hollywood cinema, responds to the name of The Rock, the highest paid actor in recent years of American cinema, who has now been absent from the rings of the McMahon company for some years .
Although Rocky owes his fame to the rings of the Stamford company, which saw him protagonist of countless feuds and storylines between the 90s and early 2000s, in the end the consecration for the athlete arrived on the big screen, where The Rock has even managed to shoot 6-8 films a year, not to mention TV series, TV shows, reality shows, etc.
In recent years, The Rock has also seen fit to return to make some appearances in the rings of the McMahon company, with some situations that have also seen him fight or return to being WWE Champion, when CM Punk was still in the ring.
of the Stamford Federation. Although in his last interview The Rock confirmed with a big NO the much discussed match between him and the Tribal Chief of Friday Night Smackdown, as well as his cousin, Roman Reigns, in that of the next edition of Wrestlemania, to the microphones of ComicBook, The Rock still wanted to open up to a future still in the McMahon ring, asserting that a new match, if there are the right credentials, would be more than possible.
Speaking precisely about his possible return to the ring, Rocky said: "I don't know if I'll ever have a new title run, considering I'm the People's Champion, but I don't know if there will ever be this title reign.
Instead, I think, more likely, that there could be another match down the road. That should make sense though." Finally, speaking of his cousin, WWE Blue Show Universal Champion, The Rock said: "I'm really, really proud of him.
I am enjoying whatever he is doing at the moment. I also like all the things the Usos are doing. I like what they are doing together and we will definitely see each other along the way."
Is Charlotte Flair leaving WWE?
This week in Writing With Russo, a format where the former WWE booker analyzes the main topics of WWE and AEW, Russo spoke about the situation between the McMahon company and Charlotte Flair.
According to the man, in fact, the Queen could ask for his release shortly, with the WWE who, however, will not want to grant it to him, forcing her to still respect the years she has on the contract, which we know to be a little longer, even if we do not have the precise number.
These are his words: "So now we're going to play this little game of chess. Probably, I think, she'll ask for her release, and I don't think they'll let her. They'll make her life hell. I don't know the terms of her contract, brother.
I don't know how long he's under contract, but in the end, brother, he's probably going to have to use it until that contract is done. " Russo himself also said a few days ago: "When you get to the point that you are unhappy and you don't want to work for that company anymore, and you make it up in your mind… Let's take a look at Charlotte Flair, brother.
Her husband [boyfriend] is in AEW, WWE has treated her father like shit about her over the years. Brother, you can make any price of any kind to Tony Khan [president AEW ed], any price, and you know it." Russo also said that no amount of money would have been enough to entice Charlotte Flair to stay if she had already decided to leave WWE psychologically, remembering her days in WCW.
"I negotiated a two-year contract for a million dollars, like. For two years, because I was going to save everything and was going to end it, plus brother, I got bonuses, incentives and things like that. I swear to God, Chris , three months later, three months later, I was on the phone with my lawyer and I said, 'I don't care what you have to do, get me out of this deal.'
And brother, I don't have Charlotte Flair's money, I don't have the money of a wrestler, but there was two years, two million dollars and I was like, get me out of this. So, money doesn't matter. All the money in the world won't make her happy."
