– The Rock made a surprise return to WWE TV on tonight’s RAW from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
Rock confronted Rusev and Lana after Rusev called Big Show to the ring. Rock had words with Lana and Rusev, even complimenting Lana and saying that she’s beautiful in person but walks around like she has “a Smirnoff bottle in her Putin.” Rock also gave props to Rusev, saying he was stronger and more dangerous than a lot of guys in the back. Rock also insulted both Lana and Rusev, leading to Rock attacking Rusev and knocking him out of the ring.
Earlier in the day it was revealed that Rock was in New York City but he later noted that he was doing business with Time Warner.
Rock was trending on Twitter during his return.
– PWInsider notes that WWE did not bring Rock in to New York City, so he really was there for other business.
Rock was also not listed in any early version of tonight’s RAW script. It’s possible his return was a case of perfect timing for WWE.
