While talking to McAfee, the two relished their time in the wrestling promotion.
The Rock spoke about his history with the company, Vince McMahon, and even hinted at plans for the future.
The star started by explaining how he planned to return to SoFi Stadium, which eventually fell through.
The Rock said: “About an hour later, we started talking about the potential of what this match could be between myself and Roman Reigns headlining Wrestlemania at SoFi.
“And we shook hands and we hugged right there – all three of us at the table said, ‘Let’s do this.’
“So then we had a year to really think about this.
“The North Star thought let’s not do something good, let’s not do something great, let’s do something unprecedented. And it was in, what was it we can create for the fans that’s never been done before?”
He continued: “What can we do for the fans in this business that we love where Wrestlemania isn’t the end of something but the beginning of something bigger.”
McAfee replied: “So what happened?”
The Rock laughed, and answered: “We got really really close! But we couldn’t actually nail what that thing was.
“We decided to put our pencils down and we agreed, there’s a merger coming up, eventually that will happen.
“There’s Wrestlemania in Philadelphia.”
The crew and the live crowd instantly reacted.
Wrestlemania 40 will be held in Philadelphia at Lincoln Financial Field starting April 2024.
Given his comments on today’s show, the sold-out crowd might be in for an unannounced treat.
