Former RAW GM discusses the importance of The Rock’s presence at WWE Elimination Chamber

RAW: Day 1 event saw the return of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, where the “Brahma Bull” basked in the love and appreciation of the WWE Universe. Johnson surprised the fans during Jinder Mahal’s promo and even successfully executed “The People’s Elbow” after their altercation.

Since his appearance, the former WWE champion has addressed a lot of issues, during which he took a jab at Roman Reigns for taking the title of “Head of the Table.” Former RAW General Manager Eric Bischoff recently discussed Dwayne’s presence at WWE Premium events like Elimination Chamber.

Former RAW GM wants The Rock at Perth

Eric Bischoff, the former RAW General Manager, was hired by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) in 2002. The 68-year-old served for a total of three years as the GM of the Red Brand. In recent times, the former Senior Vice President of WCW explained why The Rock’s attendance in Perth, Australia, will help WWE make a lot of profit and smooth the future expansion of the business.

The former GM shared a clip on Twitter/X; the caption of the video read, “The Rock in Australia makes all the sense in the world. #StrictlyBusiness.”

Following the clip, he said, “Rock showing up at Perth right before WrestleMania in the headline is…..get only gonna make the future international expansion even more profitable. It’s a great calling heart.”

The Rock is a global celebrity; since his time in WWE, people have loved him for his unique attitude and his versatility as a superstar. In the coming event of Elimination Chamber: Perth, which will take place on Saturday, February 24, 2024, at the Optus Stadium in Australia, if the global superstar were to attend the event, then WWE may get its record-breaking audience attendance in the history of Elimination Chamber pay-per-view.

Update on the potential match between The Rock and Roman Reigns

Since the “Brahma Bull” made a surprise appearance in the Day: 1 event he made it clear that a fight for the right to be the “Head of the Table” may take place between the cousins. The Rock, whose last official WWE match was in 2016 at WrestleMania 32, facing Roman for the WWE Undisputed Universal Championship will hype any fan around the world. The fans were hoping that Johnson and Reigns would face each other on January 27 at the Royal Rumble but during the last SmackDown Live event, Roman had already been finalised for a fatal 4-way match.

The event was scheduled by Blue Brand GM Nick Aldis, who wanted Roman to suffer after “The Tribal Chief” interrupted the triple threat match between Randy Orton, LA Knight, and AJ Styles. Paul Heyman, the wise man of Bloodline, was informed by the GM that the January 27 event would have a fatal 4-way match for the WWE Undisputed Universal Championship.

The potential match between The Rock and Roman Reigns might never happen, as the superstar already has three opponents who want his title. Fans were closely eyeing Cody Rhodes or The Rock to take Roman’s gold from him and dethrone him from his streak of holding the championship for over 1255 days. Now that the Big Dog is in a 4-way bout, the likeliness of him winning and still reigning as the champion is uncertain.

WWE will give Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson a match of his caliber, and fans are anticipating what the Hollywood superstar will get if not Roman Reigns. Fans worldwide are sharing and speculating on future match cards that will be worthy of the “Brahma Bull.”
