The Rock To Miss Several Weeks Of Raw To Film Reality Show

Chris Cash

The RockCurrent WWE Champion The Rock is likely to miss several weeks of WWE Raw between now and WrestleMania as he left Tuesday for Panama to film the new reality show, "The Hero". F4WOnline.com reports that his next scheduled appearance is March 4th.

Rock's next advertised appearance after 3/4 isn't until the 25th.

Rock, following 'Mania and the Raw after, will then leave for another long trip to Hungary and Croatia to begin filming for the movies "Hercules". Rock has described that movie as a passion project of his and he's been training to play the part of Hercules for over a year now, which is the reason he looks so jacked right now.

Brock Lesnar is scheduled for this Monday's Raw in Dallas, and it's also being reported that Rock and Brock alternating appearances is by design. WWE doesn't want to have the two main eventers appearing on the same shows as much as possible. This is likely due to the fact that current plans are calling for Rock vs Brock to headline next year's WrestleMania at the Superdome in New Orleans.
