The Rock’s return to WWE has been eventful

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson launched into a foul-mouthed rant at the referee during his WWE return.

The wrestling legend made his comeback as he took on on Cody Rhodes and World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 40 on Saturday night.

It was the first time he’d competed in the ring in eight years, and emotions seemed to get the better of him as he got angry with the referee.

The 51-year-old warned the official that he would be “fired” if he started counting, before telling him: “I’m not f**king around.”

Eventually, those in charge of the coverage decided to turn his mic off because of the language he was using.

In recent years, the Rock has probably been better known for his film work, having starred in movies such as Moana, San Andreas, Jumanji and the Fast and Furious films.

But he’s returned to the ring, and has been embracing a real villain role in the world of WWE.

Last month, he left fierce rival Cody Rhodes bloody and bruised as he beat him up in the parking lot.
