Dwayne Johnson will always be known as “The Rock,” and now he’s returning to his wrestling roots. As announced in an Instagram post on Monday, Johnson will appear at WWE’s WrestleMania 32 next year.

“IT’S OFFICIAL,” he wrote. “People’s Champ is coming home to do 3 things with THE PEOPLE: Set an ALL-TIME attendance record, ELECTRIFY Dallas like never before & make all time [WrestleMania] history.” He continued, “THANK YOU [WWE Universe]! It’s always an honor coming home and I wouldn’t miss it for the world.”

The Rock made a surprise appearance at WrestleMania 31 earlier this year. Teaming up with MMA fighter Ronda Rousey, he faced off against Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.

Over the holidays, Johnson shared a touching story about his uncle, who helped him prepare for his first ever wrestling match back when the soon-to-be actor had nothing. Though Johnson is a blockbuster superstar with films like Baywatch and DC’s Shazam coming down the pipeline, he can’t leave behind his first love. 

WrestleMania 32 will take place at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on Sunday, April 3.
