There is already speculation regarding The Rock possibly appearing at WrestleMania 34 next year. During the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer took fan questions. When asked if The Rock would be available to wrestle at the upcoming event, Meltzer noted that he didn’t know if there are plans for the WWE Champion to be involved in next year’s event. He brought up how there are many factors that could prevent him doing a match or even making an appearance.

Insurance reasons are the primary factor as to why The Rock has not been an active competitor at the event over the last few years. If you recall, he was injured during his match with John Cena at WrestleMania 29, and there were setbacks to filming the Hercules movie. It all comes down to this, if The Rock does wrestle at the event and get injured, then that would jeopardize his film projects which are more important to him right now than pro wrestling.

Meltzer would go onto say that if The Rock has a project going on around the time of WrestleMania 34, then it’s doubtful that he will wrestle in a match of any sorts. However, if The Rock is not filming a movie, then there is a chance that he could wrestle at the upcoming event.
