During an interview with The Houston Chronicle talking about his new Disney film “The Game Plan”, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson reiterated that he is completely done with professional wrestling. When asked about the business, he said, “My grandfather (Peter Maivia) and father (Rocky Johnson) wrestled. I grew up with wrestling. But wrestling was something where I always wanted to keep growing. I had the opportunity to wrestle with the best – Hulk Hogan, Mick Foley, Steve Austin, Undertaker and Bill Goldberg. But once I wrestled all the guys I wanted to wrestle, I realized that I couldn’t grow any more with wrestling. The reason people still ask if I’m coming back is because I never made a big production of my retirement like a lot of guys do. I just wanted to quietly get out. I quietly walked away.”

Matt Anaoi (a/k/a Rosey) is currently training in Ohio Valley Wrestling this week. No word yet whether he has signed a new deal or if he’s under further evaluation. Former ECW wrestler Christian York was also training down in OVW last week.
