The Rock is back in WWE to ‘make history’ and ‘do things that have never been done before’

The Rock returned to WWE on the Day 1 episode of Raw to whoop Jinder Mahal’s candy ass and heavily tease a match against WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns.

It definitely looks like The Rock vs. Roman Reigns is happening, it’s just a matter of whether the match takes place at Elimination Chamber in Australia, at WrestleMania 40 in Philadelphia, or at some other major stadium show.

The Rock’s latest WWE run is just getting started. Last night on Instagram, the People’s Champion posted a video that included a brief behind-the-scenes look at his return at Day 1, and he told WWE fans that it’s time to make history.

We’re having some technical difficulties embedding The Rock’s video in this post, but you can click here to check it out, while reading his comment on the video below:

These ‘electrifying’ nights are so special and unforgettable. The connection with the people, the energy, vibe, authenticity, disruption, love, mana — the CHILLS.

And now we make history, raise the bar and do things that have never been done before in @wwe.

We go all out.
And all in.

What exactly does The Rock have in mind when he says he’s back to “do things that have never been done before” in WWE? Can he achieve that goal in Australia, or does it have to happen at WrestleMania?
