The Rock is the only person they could bring in right now and jump start ratings and him putting Mcintyre over would be huge for Drew.

Mcintyre vs Rock for the WWE Championship at Summerslam.

Book it Vince!

They can't keep relying on Rock, Brock, Taker, Angle, HHH, Cena ect ect. That ship has sailed, those guys are history. WWE are in this position because they refused to have faith in the current stars. Now they have to live with that.
WWE is going to be history soon enough if the ratings keep fallen like they are.

Even on the off chance that he accepts less than his upfront of $23 million (what he got from Jumanji), it´s not gonna jumpstart anything. Once he´s gone again the ratings will be the same as now.

Rock is beholden to Hollywood now and the risk of injury is too great. Cena was the biggest outstanding program he could work and it's done.

nothing is happening right now in hollywood due to corona so if was ever a time Rock could come in and have run for a few months this would be it. Rock could work with all the big dogs Mcintyre,Orton,Edge,Rollins,and Styles.

YES ! Fans kept saying it was no big deal for those guys to come back and beat current stars because hey "Being in the ring with them is enough" they made their bed now they get to sleep in it

The Rock's wife just had a baby not that long ago. Rock might actually want to (gulp) take some time to relax and be a family man. He has over $300 million in the bank. He's not going to come back and bail Vince out again. He's also 48 years old. Taking bumps that could seriously fuck him up is not a wise choice professionally or personally.

Vince is going to have to learn to stand on his own 2 feet and live with the fact that he's pushed The Shield members, Brock, Becky/Charlotte for the last 5 years and doesn't have very much to show for it. As others have said, he made this bed

The Rock is 48, makes millions (and millions) in hollywood, and has had four wrestling matches in the last 17 years.

I don't think he would be interested.
Even if he was. I don't think hes a good investment to be fair. Whatever slight bump in the ratings he would produce, might not generate enough revenue compared to what it would cost to hire him.

Even if Vince could bring back The Rock, it would be a total waste to bring him back for this. The Rock should only be brought back for big-money matches, the type that would create a real buzz like The Rock vs Batista or The Rock vs Brock Lesnar something that suits his top tier status. Not sure if The Rock vs Drew is a big-money match but I guess we'll have to wait and see how Drew works out.

There ain't a chance in Hell Rock is coming back to work a match in front of no crowd. Let's talk about this in a couple years, because it will take about that long for fans to be back in full.
