The Rock’s return to WWE in February 2013 was one of the most hotly anticipated live events in recent memory. The WWE Universe had been clamoring for The People’s Champ’s return since he left to focus on his successful movie career, and when he finally made his way back to the ring, the fans went wild.

It had been over seven years since The Rock last appeared on WWE programming, and in that time, he had become one of Hollywood’s biggest stars. He had appeared in a number of blockbusters, including the “Fast and Furious” franchise and “G.I. Joe: Retaliation.” His return to WWE was a momentous occasion, and it was clear that he still had a huge fan base within the wrestling world.

The Rock made his return at WWE’s Raw headquarters in Greenwich, Conn., where he was interviewed by Michael Cole. He then made his way to the ring and delivered a promo that brought the house down. He talked about how much he loved WWE and how happy he was to be back. He also delivered a rhetorical knockout punch to WWE Champion CM Punk, saying that he could smell what Punk was cooking – but it smelled like “something burning.”
