Rock is a busy man with a lot going on but still finds time to help others. It’s important to note that he has been in the discussions for an appearance at Wrestlemania 33 next April. Vince McMahon prefers that he works a match but that’s not looking likely. If they can get The Rock at all it will more than likely be a cameo to help tie-in with the premiere of The Fate of the Furious, the eighth film of the Fast & Furious franchise that stars Rock.
