It looks like The Rock wants to get back to his roots.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, 38, will return to the World Wresting Entertainment, he announced on the February 14 episode of WWE Monday Night RAW. In 2004 Johnson left the world of professional wrestling to pursue a movie career. He since scored starring roles in action flicks like The Scorpion King and Faster. He even proved that he could keep up with comedic giants like Steve Carell and Will Ferrell in Get Smart and The Other Guys.

But he never forgot where he came from. "Finally the Rock has come back home!" he announced from the ring to an adoring audience. He will be the host of WrestleMania in its 27th year. "You helped me accomplish my dreams because you never left my side," he told his screaming fans. "Thank you, I love you!"

WrestleMania XXVII will be held in Atlanta on April 3. —KIMBERLY STEELE
