It is unknown when The Rock will return to WWE, but speaking to ET Canada, he reflected on his time and why he's forever grateful.

"I don't take any of this for granted. I came from that world and love that world of pro wrestling and grew up in that world. I cut my teeth there and had my debut many moons ago in New York City, Madison Square Garden, Survivor Series for WWE. I always say...if you're a wrestling fan, then you understand. If you're not a wrestling fan and you don't understand, that's totally cool, but the context I like to give people is, I have been lucky and bless to have the career I've had, but there is no greatest connection than the one I have with the audience and it all started there in that world. It forced me to think on my toes, live crowd, talking shit, but it also forced me to listen, really listen to the crowd. I would want to go one way, and I'd say something, but I would hear the reaction and go, 'Ah, maybe I should go this way.' My time in WWE will always have such a special place in my heart and that's why I love going back whenever I'm able to," he said.

The Rock has been doing media to promote his new film "Red Notice."

He told Andrew Freund that there was no truth to the rumors that he would be wrestling Reigns at WrestleMania. You can view his full comments by clicking here.
