If you think that Heath Slater is the hottest free agent in the world of sports entertainment then you are bound to be wrong.
We are over with the WWE Draft for nearly 2 months now and still left with quite a few names available who are still not under a WWE contract. So, both Raw and Smackdown better get ready to grab these superstars to increase the star attractions of their shows.
WWE recently published the list of 4 hottest free agents of the pro-wrestling circuit and it starts with none other than the biggest movie star in the world, The Rock.
The Rock is also the biggest star attraction in the WWE, till date. The former WWE Champion was last featured in an actual match at Wrestlemania 29 against John Cena. Since then he appeared in certain capacities in WWE ring including this year’ Wrestlemania 32. The show that took place in Dallas, Texas saw him beating Eric Rowan in a record six-second span.
Now, we know The Rock is committed to his movie duties and hence is not available for wrestling, anymore. With that being said, we were in pretty much doubt to seeing him again competing inside the squared circle or not. But, quite interestingly WWE posted the following which suggests that there’s more to come from the People’s champion. (quotes are courtesy allwrestlingnews.com)
"In the original brand extension draft in 2002, Mr. McMahon chose The Rock as the top pick for SmackDown. The most electrifying man in all of the entertainment has created a Hall of Fame worthy resume but as he showed at WrestleMania 32 with a record-breaking win over Erick Rowan, his in-ring career is far from over.”
WWE posting this could eventually mean that The Rock is on for the rumored match against his Fast and Furious co-star, Vin Diesel at next year’s Wrestlemania. Since the movie is going to release just one week later to the mega event, this match is supposed to hype up the promotion.
The other free agents mentioned by WWE in the post and video were The Undertaker, Luke Harper, and Emma. The phenom is rumored to join the blue brand upon return whereas we have no clues about the later two.
They both are healing from legitimate leg injuries, at this point. No details about their return have been disclosed by WWE.
