The host of WrestleMania XXVII appeared on Piers Morgan Tonight tonight on CNN. Piers Morgan asked Johnson whether he plans on wrestling again.
"I'm open to it," Johnson said.
Morgan asked, "You are?"
"Very open to it. Sure. I've always been open to it," Johnson replied.
"When I left wrestling seven years ago, at that time, two things happened. I accomplished everything I wanted to accomplish in wrestling and I also wanted to become a good actor. In order to do that, I felt, I needed to concentrate solely and commit myself to acting."
We reported last weekend that both WWE and The Rock are very happy with the current Cena-Miz-Rock storyline. The Rock originally agreed to host WrestleMania 27 back in January but he's so genuinely happy about being back that he's said to be more than willing to get back in the ring for a few more matches. WWE is being very secretive about any plans for more matches. Most people within WWE expect The Rock to wrestle both John Cena and The Miz at some point. He's also expected to stick around on a part-time basis following WrestleMania 27.
The approximate 30 minute interview, which was taped two days earlier, featured Johnson reflecting his life, career and future aspirations.
