Triple H and The Rock are no strangers in the ring, but it has been some time since the two have locked up in the squared circle. Dwayne Johnson is a highly successful movie star and Paul Levesque is the executive vice president of talent, live events and creative for WWE. However, never rule out another meeting between these two Attitude Era icons.

“About two years ago, he and I did a backstage promo with each other where we talked about WrestleMania and the competitive nature of that and it lit the internet about the possibility of it,” Levesque said in a Facebook Live this month. “It’s something we’ve discussed. It’s just making schedules work. He’s pretty busy – me too – so it’s making schedules work.

“But look, right place, right time, I’ll dance one more time with ‘The Great One’, Rock.”

It’s hard to imagine a match of this magnitude taking place anywhere but WrestleMania, but if their schedules don’t accommodate that, SummerSlam could be a destination. Levesque made two things clear in the interview: He will wrestle again, and he’s still highly competitive with Johnson.

“See, it’s always competitive with Rock and I from the very start of our careers. Now he’s using Dwayne Johnson. They call me Paul Levesque. It’s all competitive. He grew a beard. I grew a beard. It’s all competitive,” Levesque said, courtesy of 411Mania.com transcription. “Yeah, we’re just … it’s funny, he and I over the years we’ve had this interesting rivalry at a time in our lives when we were really trying to establish ourselves and make something. It’s what made WWE great and it’s what makes WWE great to this day, it’s that competitive nature.

“We’ve come to a point where we appreciate that competitive nature, but to this day, if he posts something at 4 a.m. on Instagram, he was working out, and I’m like, ‘oh man, I can’t take the day off today. I’ve got to train too. Rock trained.’ Yeah, I don’t know what it is. We’ve laughed about it with each other, but there’s still something about our relationship with each other. We get along great, talk business and the things that he does intersecting with WWE.”
