The RockSeveral weeks ago, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson teased that he will be returning to WWE at Survivor Series this year. WZ then exclusively confirmed that The Rock will indeed be at the PPV this year, adding that a major promotional campaign will be centered around him.

In an update to this story, it appears as if one of the promotional tools will be to feature The Rock as a playable character in the upcoming WWE '12 video game. His name has been advertised heavily for pre-orders of the video game, and his character will be an updated, 2011 version of The Rock.

Additionally, The Wrestling Observer is reporting that Mick Foley might be a playable character in the game, as he has hinted at it recently. There has also been discussion of booking Foley for one final match at WrestleMania this year, but of course Foley cannot begin to work with WWE until his TNA contract expires in September.
