WrestleZone has learned exclusively that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon and Stephanie McMahon-LeVesque have informed key members of the WWE writing team to expect Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson to be appearing in a WWE ring, only not as Wrestlemania host, but as an active participant in a match coming soon.
"This is breaking behind the scenes," a key WWE insider told us late this evening, "If there was a way to properly build and advertise it, I bet they’d make the Wrestlemania match with Cena and Miz into a three-way with The Rock. But Vince is determined to make a potential Rock return mean a lot more than Bret Hart’s return, or anyone else’s return. Vince sees Rock’s involvement this year as a major saving grace for Wrestlemania, and he wants to capitalize on it as big as he can."
No timetable is set, although the speculation for SummerSlam is either "right on target," according to the insider, "or just the next step towards next year’s Wrestlemania."
