Freedom High School grad Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, told fans he would never return to WWE in a wrestling match.
In a new Q and A on his Facebook page, Johnson said he will come back in some capacity for a show called "Rock Raw" that he plans to create with Vince McMahon, the head of WWE.
The pro wrestling star turned actor retired from the WWE to pursue his childhood dreams of going to Hollywood. He has since starred in movies including "The Mummy Returns," "The Scorpion King" and "The Tooth Fairy." He has been cast to play Sinbad in Chuck Russell's $70 million "Arabian Nights."
Johnson says the WWE will always be "in my blood."
He will return for "Rock Raw" "a lot sooner than you think." He promised the show will be "something electrifying and historic for the fans."
He said he retired from wrestling because he had "succeeded in accomplishing every goal" he set out to achieve. He said his goals included becoming the youngest WWE World Champion; setting WWE box office and attendance records; setting pay-per-view buy rate records and becoming the "most entertaining and electrifying performer the WWE had ever seen or will ever see again."
He says the WWE is a "business and company that is in my blood and that I will love forever," and he will "always be The Rock."
Up until recently, the new USA drama "Fairly Legal" which airs at 10 p.m. Thursdays, had a different title.
Originally scheduled to be called "Facing Kate," the title put the spotlight on Kate Reed, played by Sarah Shahi, as a top litigator frustrated with the bureaucracy and injustices of the system, who decided to become a mediator.
So why the name change? Apparently producers were concerned the name sounded a little too much like a certain local reality show star with a large family.
In an interview with the Toronto Sun, star Shahi said 80 percent of a test audience thought "Facing Kate" was a reality show about Berks County's Kate Gosselin. Hence the last-minute name change to "Fairly Legal."
"I was pretty bummed out when they changed the title," Shahi said in the interview. "I thought I got to be the title character of a show, and now I'm no longer in the title."
