The WWE has hinted at Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson returning for the 1,000th episode of the SmackDown.

The sports-entertainment company said on Twitter that he might return for ‘The People’s Champion’ for the landmark episode.

‘SmackDown’ is a catchphrase used by The Rock in his promos.

The company has also mentioned the return of Brock Lesnar.

Rey Mysterio is the only confirmed superstar to make his comeback.

SmackDown 1000 will be held on October 16 in Washington DC.

The show launched the careers of pop-culture icons such as ‘The Rock’, John Cena, The Undertaker, Triple H and ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin.

It is the second-longest running weekly episodic cable television show in US prime time history, only behind Monday Night Raw.
