In an update on former WWE Champion Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson returning to the WWE for a potential match against his cousin Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39, the potential of The Rock appearing in the 2023 Royal Rumble as a surprise entrant at number 30 and winning the match have been talked about as a “pie in the sky” type idea, according to a report from Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer.

The report notes that originally, the belief was that if The Rock’s schedule allowed for it, then he would do the match against Reigns and while the WWE pushed the idea for WrestleMania last year, The Rock wanted the match to take place in Los Angeles if he could make things happen.
