Big Update on The Rock's WWE Future

According to The Wrestling Observer, a merchandise licensee was told by WWE not to make any new Rock merchandise, and that while he could be used in terms of Superstar group shots, not to make anything specific for him.

This has lead many to believe that The Rock will not be featured in WWE next year, making it likely we will not see him back in WWE until 2015. It has not been confirmed whether or not The Rock has told WWE that he will not be working with them next year, which of course would mean he's not working WrestleMania 30, but people are taking the merchandise halting as a sign he won't be back anytime soon.
