Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson returning to WWE ... kind of
Can you smell what "The Rock" is cooking? It has the distinct odor of publicity stunt.
The football player turned professional wrestler turned movie star made his first appearance in seven years on Monday night's "WWE Raw" to announce that he'll be hosting Wrestlemania 27. While that sentence makes about as much sense to me as "Malkovich Malkovich Malkovich," I'm assured by a WWE fan of my acquaintance that this is, indeed, big news.
Johnson, who used his WWE popularity as a launching pad for a career making a string of meathead-does-good movies, later found success as "The Scorpion King" and in kid fare like "Race to Witch Mountain." He is also one of the most surprisingly funny "SNL" guest hosts, most recently making appearances as "The Rock" Obama.
