Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has broken his silence about circulating claims about his return to wrestling

Is Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson finally heading back to the wrestling ring? It looks like his die-hard fans will have to keep waiting. 

The professional wrestler-turned-actor was interview by ET’s Matt Cohen, along with his Jungle Cruise costar Emily Blunt. Upon being inquired about his probable WWE return, Johnson said: "There's nothing.”

Blunt then joined the conversation and quipped: "It's gonna be me and him."

"Yeah, it's gonna be a tag team," Johnson responded.

"Gonna be me and him, and there's gonna be a big fight," joked Blunt.

Addressing speculation around The Rock’s return, WWE star John Cena told ET’s Ash Crossan: "Dwayne Johnson is a star in his own universe. There is no one like him.”

"There will never be anyone like him. For him to be gracious enough to return to WWE, it's own global entertainment phenomenon, that's great for WWE and it is great for The Rock,” he said.

This comes weeks after Andrew Zarian of the Mat Men Pro Wrestling Podcast claimed that the wrestler-turned-actor is planning to return for this year’s Survivor Series pay-per-view.
