Dwayne Johnson has clarified once and for all his future with WWE via
his Facebook page. He confirmed recent talks with Vince McMahon about
doing something on Raw, but said he will never wrestle again. He wrote:
"...to the Rock's millions and millions...who will forever be my
family.. ..my honest and direct answer to you is this: I left the WWe
because I had succeeded in accomplishing every goal I set to achieve.
...I've never done this before, but I will now because I feel it's
important you know...let me share with you the goals I set for myself in
the WWE so you can have a better understanding and perspective.. -
become the youngest WWE World Champion - help set box office and
attendance records in every arena in the country - help set PPV buy rate
records ..the final two and my most important goals to achieve in
wrestling: - become the most entertaining and electrifying performer the
WWE had ever seen or will ever see again - take the brass ring of the
WWE that Vince McMahon had faithfully allowed me to earn and take it
places it had never gone before...to trailblaze...to break new
ground...to achieve unprecedented greatness for not only for myself and
the fans to enjoy...but for the business of professional wrestling
itself and the WWE... A business and company that is in my blood and
that I will love forever. ...I achieved these goals in the WWE at 30
years old and decided then to HUMBLY and QUIETLY step away and retire.
..and set my sights on another goal...a childhood dream... Hollywood.
..will I ever come back to the WWE? of course I will.. . not a match
though, but in a capacity that would allow me to do so much more.. I
LOVE that company and the fans...without the two I would not be standing
where I am today... Vince and myself stay very closely connected and
when the opportunity is right - which will be a lot sooner than you
think--we will do something electrifying and historic for the fans...he
and I were toying with the idea of a special show called "ROCK RAW"...
sounds like a perfect title for me to come back and SLAP THE LIPS OFF
THOSE JABRONIS and LAYETH THE SMACKETH DOWN ON AAAAALLLLL THEIR CANDY
ASSES!!! sorry...got carried away... I'll save that one of a kind
electricity for Rock Raw.. ...it is important to me to say this from my
heart - to the incredibly loyal "..The Rock's Millions and Millions..."
and the entire WWE UNIVERSE...I am forever humbled and grateful to you
for allowing me the HONOR to entertain you over the years...you have my
word I will continue to entertain you in ways like no one else...it's
only just the beginning... I dream big...and we've achieved those dreams
together because you never left my side... I love you for that and thank
you... I am Dwayne Johnson...and I will also always be The Rock."
