Dwayne Johnson mocks Baywatch in a feisty WWE return, setting the stage for a showdown

In a surprise return to the WWE ring after years away, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson delivered a memorable moment by humorously dissing one of his own movies during a heated exchange with fellow wrestler Jinder Mahal. The WWE veteran, now a Hollywood megastar, took a lighthearted jab at the 2017 Baywatch remake, a film that didn’t quite match the success of his other blockbusters.

Interrupting Jinder Mahal’s speech during WWE Raw on January 1, The Rock playfully threw shade at his wrestling counterpart: “If The Rock had to guess why you’re so angry, it’s probably because no one likes you and you’re not funny. As a matter of fact, if you were one of The Rock’s movies, you would probably be Baywatch.”

In a quick-witted comeback, Johnson continued the banter as Mahal claimed he hadn’t seen Baywatch. The Rock retorted, “Well, nobody else did either. Shut your mouth when The Rock is talking to you.”

The audience erupted in cheers, showcasing the enduring popularity of the 51-year-old wrestling icon who left WWE back in 2004. The verbal sparring and comedic insults added a touch of entertainment to the WWE Raw segment, proving that The Rock’s charisma is as potent as ever.

As Johnson left the ring, he hinted at a potential matchup with Roman Reigns, the current Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, using a sly reference to Reigns’ moniker, ‘Head of the Table.’ The speculation about a showdown between The Rock and Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40 has fueled excitement among wrestling fans, though no official confirmation has been made.

The Rock’s return to WWE not only brought a burst of nostalgia but also set the stage for what could be a highly anticipated face-off in the wrestling world. As the wrestling universe eagerly awaits developments, Johnson’s charismatic comeback ensures that his presence in the WWE continues to be a major draw for fans worldwide.
