The Rock Jokes About WrestleMania 33, Talks About Leaving WWE

The Rock could be headed back to his home state for WrestleMania 33.

The sure-fire WWE Hall of Famer appeared at last year's WrestleMania, defeating Erick Rowan in a lightning fast match. The Rock was interviewed by Chris Van Vilet this weekend, and was asked about the potential of appearing at next year's show in Orlando. The Rock replied with "Sure, I'll see you there," after the video stopped rolling according to Van Vliet.

Singing in WWE, singing in movies:

"What really helped was Lin-Manuel Miranda who wrote the music for our movie, did a lot of research and he pulled up all of those old concerts that I used to do in a WWE ring where I'm singing and I'm talking and I'm singing and I'm talking s--t. He had the greatest time doing that and he thought the perfect song for me would be a song called 'You're Welcome'. Lin's a genius, I loved working with him. He's phenomenal. So when he sent me the song I thought 'OK, sounds good. I can do this' and then it goes into a rap and I thought 'alright, I'm down. Let's do this. I'll spit that fire!'"

The challenge of a voice role:

"It was a great challenge for me because it was a different muscle to exercise. It's one thing when we're just talking like this, but it's another thing to really inject life into your voice and intonation."

Leaving WWE for an acting career:

"I wanted to challenge myself. And I wanted to be better. And I didn't want to settle. I was really fortunate to accomplish what I accomplished in wrestling. I loved it. There's nothing like wrestling. That crowd, I love it. But I also wanted more and there's that interesting thing when you're lucky enough to get that little bit of success and then you want to do something else that's not your forte, that clearly is not, but you're willing to take the challenge on, you're met with a lot of cynicism. You gotta fight through that and you gotta listen to the voice inside and then you gotta bring it."
