The Rock: “I’m Done With Wrestling”

If anyone was holding out hope that The Rock would come back… to WWE, a recent story in the Houston Chronicle puts that to rest, quoting Dwayne Johnson as saying, “Absolutely, I’m done with wrestling.”

“I love wrestling,” The Rock continued. “My grandfather (Peter Maivia) and father (Rocky Johnson) wrestled. I grew up with wrestling. But wrestling was something where I always wanted to keep growing. I had the opportunity to wrestle with the best — Hulk Hogan, Mick Foley, Steve Austin, Undertaker and Bill Goldberg. But once I wrestled all the guys I wanted to wrestle, I realized that I couldn’t grow any more with wrestling … The reason people still ask if I’m coming back is because I never made a big production of my retirement like a lot of guys do. I just wanted to quietly get out. I quietly walked away.”

What? No “never say never?”
