Backstage Update: The Rock's Return Kept Secret, More

As noted yesterday here on the site, The Rock's WWE return was kept a secret from nearly everyone within WWE. WWE senior management members were led to believe through the course of the week that Bob Barker would be the host. This was obviously a plant in order to keep the return a secret.


The Rock arrived to the arena late during the evening yesterday. He was kept in a secluded dressing room until his return to TV.

Original plans called for Vince McMahon to appear on the show to announce the WrestleMania guest host. They even plugged it last week. Also, The Rock was not scheduled to appear on RAW so something changed over the weekend.
