The Rock’s influence in the world of professional wrestling needs no introduction as he has accomplished a lot in the business. It’s always a big deal when he appears on WWE television and his Smackdown return was no different. Now The Great One has disclosed the story behind his Smackdown return and how it was an impromptu decision.
The Rock made his return after almost four years on the September 15th episode of Friday Night Smackdown. Unsurprisingly, he ended up getting the biggest pop on the show by a mile. He even hit The People’s Elbow on Austin Theory, electrifying fans in attendance.
While speaking on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, the WWE legend talked about his return on Smackdown. The Rock revealed that it was an impromptu decision as he informed Nick Khan the night before Smackdown that he was going to be at the show.
”It was incredible. So here’s the crazy thing about that is we were in Boulder [Colorado]. I was there for College Game Day. And I found out the night before that WWE SmackDown is going to be in Denver, which is right up the road. So I called my buddy at WWE, Nick Khan, and I said, Hey, man, I heard SmackDown is here. Can you confirm that? He said it is. I said, good. Well, The Rock is coming to SmackDown.”
The Rock certainly made a lot of memories in Denver for SmackDown. That said, his in-ring return remains undecided even now. It remains to be seen when The Brahma Bull will make his triumphant return to WWE television once again.
