THE ROCK SAYS HE MAY HAVE WRESTLED FOR THE LAST TIME, DISCUSSES 'WALKING OUT' ON WWE AND MORE

Dwayne Johnson was interviewed by Hot 97 DJ Pete Rosenberg to promote his new TNT reality series "Hero", which will debut on 6/6.

Rock discussed a number of different WWE topics:

Whether he has wrestled his last match: "Was it my last match? Possibly....I'm really not too sure. I wouldn't rule it out. The plan the whole time was to create the Miami [Wrestlemania PPV] and create the biggest show of all-time in the biggest market of New York."

Whether the Plan was To Do Rock vs. Cena III: "In New Orleans? No, not at all."

Wrestlemania 30: "The original plan was possibly Brock and myself...like, that was the next thing that made sense to me because, I love Brock and we've been friends for over a decade now and, we could have a great, athletic match. So, that was the plan, but when I tore two tendons off my pelvis, I had to fly home that day. So, we couldn't do what we wanted to do at Raw that day. So, so, possibly with Brock down the road."

Missing Raw: "That's so false [that I left without notice]. I talked to Vince that night when I was hurt. Vince, and Triple H, by the way, and John Cena and C.M. Punk came and all these guys came. All these guys came...it's easier and more salacious if 'The Rock just left' but it's just not how I do business by the way. So, that night, I saw the WWE guys, the Orthos. They did the fun test if one has a hernia, and Vince came by the locker room. I said I was hurt, then we agreed that I was not going to be at the show the next night. I wasn't quite too sure where all the 'scrambling' came in. That afternoon, I got a call from one of the WWE writers asking me if there was a message...not only if I wanted to Tweet a message, but if there was a statement from the Orthopedists that you saw today."
