Report: Update On Plans For The Rock At WWE Survivor Series
No Rock at Survivor Series?
The Rock hasn't appeared inside a WWE ring since October 2019, but that was reportedly set to change later this year as The Brahma Bull was scheduled to appear at Survivor Series for the 25th anniversary of his WWE debut.
Those plans have seemingly been scrapped, though, as The Rock will be in Australia on Sunday, November 21, according to Andrew Zarian of the Mat Men Pro Wrestling Podcast. The Rock may still make a video appearance at Survivor Series.
Zarian said: "Little update on The Rock – he is apparently in Australia during Survivor Series. Now does that mean that he won't be doing something at Survivor Series? They're definitely gonna mention it. They're definitely gonna talk about it. There will be maybe a video appearance or something that's planned. But he's not gonna be there, and it really looks like the focus has shifted to moving a Roman/Rock match to LA (WrestleMania 39 in 2023). I'll say it this way - there are people that are adamant that it needs to take place in Los Angeles. They're adamant. There are certain people that say, 'No, this match should not happen at Dallas (WrestleMania 38 in 2022), it should happen in LA.
"There's a lot of back-and-forth happening right now with this, but originally, this was happening. Multiple sources from in the company, out of the company, told me that the plan was this. Where it goes from here, we'll find out."
Original plans for The Rock would have seen him appear at Survivor Series ahead of a match with Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 38. The feeling as of early September, though, was that the match was more likely to take place at WrestleMania 39 in Inglewood, California.
