Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is reportedly negotiating an appearance on episode 1,000 of WWE Smackdown, which will take place at the Capital One Arena in Washington, DC.

 

According to the podcast ‘Barnburner’s Fired Up’ hosted by wrestling insider Joe Peisich, he said: "For the 1,000th SmackDown which happens on October 16th they are negotiating and very very close to a Rock appearance. The effort to bring Johnson back is not surprising given the former wrestler helped catapult the brand during its early years. It also helped jumpstart The Rock's film career as he logged a considerable amount of screen time during his WWE days.”

 

The Rock appeared on a WWE program back  in 2016 for WrestleMania 32 a pay-per-view wrestling competition.
