The Rock is a former multi-time WWE Champion and an in-ring legend. He is no longer so active inside the ring, but over the last two and a half decades, Dwayne Johnson has entertained everyone across the world. He made his WWE debut 25 years ago at the pay-per-view titled Survivor Series. He famously said that he only had seven dollars with him, and now his one appearance helps in earn in seven figures.
The success story of The Rock is very inspiring. However, like everyone else, Dwayne Johnson was young and idolized many people once upon a time. In a recent Twitter conversation with WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair, The Rock named the heroes of his life. It was Flair who first sent a message to The Brahma Bull. Ric wrote on Twitter that the word respect is the biggest one in the world. He also wrote things about the megastar with an old photo of himself with The Brahma Bull.
Replying to the 16-time world champion, The Rock called him his hero and added that not just Ric Flair, but his own father, Dusty, Muraco, Hawk, Animal and Roddy Piper were his heroes growing up.
Respect, always brother.
You, Dusty my dad, Muraco, Hawk, Animal, Piper, all you guys were my heroes. This pic was taken in 1984 ~ in Vegas at the NWA annual convention.
I was pimply faced 12 year old with an afro and you were (and will always be) “The Man”. #woo https://t.co/xVAX4wVRObAdvertisement

Will The Rock return to WWE again?
There is a big question mark over The Brahma Bull’s return to the WWE. It is highly unlikely that fans will see him wrestle again. According to rumors, WWE wanted The Rock to return at WWE Survivor Series 2021. However, he did not appear because of quarantine rules. Nevertheless, WWE celebrated the 25th anniversary of its debut. They also promoted his Netflix film Red Notice.
It will be interesting to see if The Rock ever returns to WWE. Many fans are expecting a WrestleMania match between The Great One and Roman Reigns next year.
