Sunday, Sunday, Sunday: The Rock returns to Wrestlemania
NEW YORK CITY - World Wrestling Entertainment kicked off Wrestlemania week in New York City at Radio City Music Hall to promote the company's biggest event of the year, Wrestlemania 29.
One of the stars of WWE, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, thrilled the crowd.
"For me to come back, at this point in my career, and again to become WWE Champion to a business I love, and give back to a business that I wouldn't be the man I am today without this business, means so much to me," said Johnson, who is the current WWE Champion.
Wrestlemania 29 will be held at Met Life Stadium in New Jersey and will host a crowd of over 75,000, and will be seen in 145 countries in 30 different languages.
Johnson, whose father and grandfather both wrestled for the WWE, will be in attendance to talk about his experience in the WWE.
"There is such a really cool deep rooted connection that I have with not only this business but this event that's going to take place this Sunday," said Johnson.
Johnson is in the middle of the release of four movies over spring, which helps bring new fans to the WWE.
"The bottom line is if I can come in and help elevate the company, then I do it whether it's for a week or whether I'm able to carve out a three to four month run like I was able to do," said Johnson.
The WWE will also have over 20 social media ambassadors such as Donald Trump, Jimmy Fallon and the band Coldplay, which the WWE says will give the event an extra fan base of over 50 to 60 million people.
The event will be on pay per view, WWE.com, Xbox Live and Samsung smart TVs.
