"I had left (wrestling), and he had done a series of radio interviews and somebody had referenced me saying, 'Hey, is The Rock, ever coming back?' And he said, 'I'm not quite too sure, ' and I just didn't like how he said it", the Rampage actor explained.

"I was honoured to play an amputee, and to make sure that I did right by them", Johnson said on the red carpet for the film's USA premiere Tuesday night. "People always ask me 'what's it like being in a WWE ring?' I always tell them there's nothing like it".

"You can't be as big, '" Johnson said. He said that he was exhausted of trying to be something that he wasn't in reality.
