We haven’t heard The Rock speak publicly since he lost the WWE Title match at Wrestlemania 29 against John Cena. Rock was supposed to be on the Monday Night Raw the following night due to injuries suffered in the main event.
The Rock spoke to Hot 97′s Peter Rosenberg about his reality show “The Hero”, which premieres in June. Naturally Rosenberg asked The Rock questions pertaining to Wrestlemania 29 and the aftermath that has ensued.
The Rock on Wrestlemania 29 being his last match: “Possibly,” Rock said. “The goal three years ago was, sat down with Vince McMahon and strategized about it and talked about three WrestleMania’s back to back, boom, boom, boom, and building to this. I committed myself to the company.
“I was very proud of that moment. It didn’t matter if I lost or did the job or not. It’s was an honor to do the honors. And in the wrestling world, there is no better way to give back to the business than to do the honors. I know there are a lot of fans who say it shouldn’t have been done or it should have been someone else, that’s not for me to say.”
Missing Raw the night after Wrestlemania: “I talked to Vince (McMahon) that night when I was hurt that night. Vince (McMahon) came to my locker room at WrestleMania. Vince and Triple H by the way, and John Cena came and C.M. Punk came. It’s easier and more salacious and more entertaining if “The Rock just left.” That’s now how I do business by the way.”
Rumors about potentially facing Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 30 next year: “The original plan was possibly Brock (Lesnar) and myself,” Rock said. “That was the next thing that made sense to me because I love Brock and we’ve been friends for over a decade now and we could have great, athletic match. So that was the plan, but then when I tore the two tendons off my pelvis, then I had to fly home that day. We couldn’t do what we wanted to do at Raw that day, so possibly, possibly with Brock down the road.”
