Because WWE movies suck, and the entire budget would have to be Rock's salary.

I wish WWE would wash their hands of this whole failed "Let's try and be a movie studio!" experiment.

I'm a Brock Lesnar Guy.

Like many others have said, WWE studios is a joke. Their movies are complet garbage as well. WWE Studios barely qualifies as single A ball compared to the major leagues where The Rock usually shoots films.

And yes, the money difference is fuckin huge. The Rock made more money doing a shitty movie like the Tooth Fairy than wrestlers like CM Punk have made in their entire wrestling careers. And yes, the difference is that big.

Rock gets about as much for a single Hollywood movie than the entire regular WWE roster gets in a year of doing shows. Maybe even more.

Isn't The Condemned a WWE Studio movie? I thought that was better than anything The Rock has done to be fair. But yeah like others have said, no one really takes WWE Studios seriously and I'm sure he wants to be held in high respect.

Re: Why doesn't The Rock do movies with WWE studios and still wrestle part time?

Why would he do movies with the WWE studio? Maybe back in the toothfairy days but now he's a legit movie star imo, getting roles in G.I Joe and F&F etc, this would be a major stepback, what would you suggest he do? Be in the next Marine lol?





Top 5 (At the moment):

1. Damien Sandow (fo' life)
2. Seth Rollins
3. Daniel Bryan
4. Luke Harper
5. Bad News Barrett

Dwayne wants to make his own money doing movies . If he did movies with WWE studios they would take all the money

He needs to play more badass roles like that.
I thought the Rundown was pretty decent as well.

Unfortunately, its the Tooth Fairy and Journey 2 type movies that make him seem like a joke.

1) He doesn't want to wrestle full time.

2) He wants to be in good movies, not Jamie Kennedy flicks.

Re: Why doesn't The Rock do movies with WWE studios and still wrestle part time?

Besides The Rundown and Condemned, I haven't seen another movie from WWE Studios that I enjoyed. As much of a fan of Rock's as I am. Him wrestling on an actual part-time schedule again (not counting currently), wouldn't really do him any good. If he wants to be respected and move up in the world of acting. Doing films with WWE Studios isn't going to cut it.


STAND BACK!

Re: Why doesn't The Rock do movies with WWE studios and still wrestle part time?

This is like saying why not sign with TNA. Regardless of your opinion of the product, they're paying much less money because fewer ppl buy the product. And he wouldn't put WWE Studios on the map, it would marginalize Rock as a WWE guy, something he's spent yrs trying to get away from. Only when he established himself as a great actor, and realized that time was running out to play a comeback role in WWE, did Rock return. Had he been doing 1-2 matches a yr with WWE this entire time he wouldn't have gotten the movie deals he got.

WWE favorites: Punk, Sheamus, Lesnar, Ambrose, Rollins, Reigns,
Del Rio, Orton, Bryan, Ziggler, Wyatt, Usos, Cesaro, Mysterio, Kane
DGPW: Doi, Yoshino, Tozawa, Yamato, Dragon Kid, BxB Hulk, Ricochet, Super Shisa
NJPW: Okada, Nakamura, Styles ROH: Briscoes, Fish and O'Reilly, Young Bucks
All-Time: Rock, Punk, Lesnar, Angle
