The Rock Returns to the WWE
Last night, thanks to Twitter I was able to catch the return of the “Most Electrifying Man in Sports Entertainment” – The Rock. Or who is now known as Dwayne Johnson.
It brought back great moments from my childhood as a die hard wrestling fan. Most of my good friends know.. I was hooked on wrestling.
The Rock has been gone for 7 years, pursuing many blockbuster films and even some Disney family flicks as well..
The intensity and ferocity of the promo the Rock gave last night was as if he never left. He made everyone that I’ve seen in wrestling over the last seven years look bad. He claims it wasn’t to promote a movie, or a book or anything of that nature, just to come back “home” to wrestling which made him in to the star he is today. He will be the host of Wrestlemania 28, not that I could tell you any of the wrestlers on the card, it’s still more significant now that the Rock will be “hosting” it, whatever “hosting” entails..
If you were at all a fan of the Rock in the hayday of wrestling or the “Attitude Era” (late 90′s and early 2000′s) you should definitely watch this.
Oh and to optimize on the buzz The Rock joined Twitter: @TheRock . Seems to be doing pretty well for himself so far with 82,000 followers in ONE day. I’m excited to see if he keeps active.
To give you an idea of the substantial growth in social media activity after the Rock had is insanely hyped debut. I’ve used Sysomos MAP to show the huge burst in activity. I’d say his return was a huge success, and his venture into Twitter created a humongous amount of buzz around the Twittersphere.
