According to Bryan Alvarez of The Wrestling Observer, The Rock does not currently have any movie or TV filming commitments from January through March of 2023. Alvarez said, “He is going to do zero movie commitments for the first quarter of 2023, which would allow him to do WrestleMania without having to worry about movie commitments and also have the time to help launch the first season of the XFL. So actually, the timing for doing a WrestleMania match would be excellent this year because he has two different projects which would require him to take time off from movies.”
As mentioned above, The Rock is heavily involved in the relaunch of the XFL which will be taking place roughly the same time as WWE WrestleMania season, the perfect recipe for him to take some time away from acting to return to WWE. The Rock has expressed a desire to come back to WWE for numerous years now, but his filming schedule makes it impossible to do.
The belief has been that The Rock wants to compete against Roman Reigns at the showcase of immortals, and Dave Meltzer reported a few months ago that this match had already been preliminary penciled in as the main event of the show.
