The People’s Champion is back.
The Rock, a nine-time WWF/WWE champion and fan-favorite legend, is returning to host “Wrestlemania XXVII.” He announced his return on WWE Raw on Monday night in a short video that electrified the pro wrestling world.
“The most electrifying man of all of entertainment is hosting the most electrifying event of all of entertainment!” he exclaimed in a behind-the-scenes video. He brings back his self-important persona, third person references, self-proclaimed “People’s Champion” title and, of course, The People’s Elbow.
The Rock, of course, is the wrestling persona of Dwayne Johnson, the one-time college football player and now movie star. Since leaving wrestling, he’s been a consistent action movie performer, drawing big box offices for “The Mummy Returns,” “The Scorpion King,” “Doom,” and comedies such as “The Game Plan,” “Tooth Fairy,” and “The Other Guys.”
