The Rock Reveals What “Sealed The Deal” For Him To Return To WWE; Sheamus On Rumors Of The Rock Backstage

- The Rock told The Palm Beach Post that Wrestlemania XXVIII being held in Miami “sealed the deal” for him to return to take part in the event. WWE negotiated with The Rock for years in hopes of a return for a main event match against John Cena which of course will become a reality on Sunday.

- Sheamus was asked by ESPN about backstage jealousy of The Rock as well as him receiving heat for taking up a main event spot when he’s not a full time performer. Here’s what he said: “Rock’s been nothing but cool to me. I haven’t said too much to him, we’re all so busy backstage doing stuff for Wrestlemania, but I’ll be honest with you, Rock came over to me, shook my hand, and introduced himself to me from day one. When I see him on Mondays, I ask him how he’s doing, and he asks the same of me. I have no problem with him at all. He’s been nothing but cool to me. I have no problem with The Rock. He’s as cool as ice.”

    Nice to see someone give respect to Rock for all that he has done for their careers. Without Rock and Austin they would all be working for Ted Turner and have the same lame story lines they are trying to recycle over at TNA.
