The Rock makes surprise return on Friday Night Smackdown

The Ball Arena in Denver is looking for a new roof as the WWE Universe blew it off after The Rock made his surprise appearance on Smackdown last night.

The show started with another surprise as former Smackdown commentator Pat McAfee returned but he was rudely interrupted by an old nemesis, Austin Theory.

Theory ran down the people of Denver, McAfee, and everyone and said this was not Smackdown, but it’s Austin Theory Live and he doesn’t care about the people. McAfee said this is the people’s show…and asked Theory if he knows what that means.

Cue in The Rock’s theme song and the Denver crowd lost all their marbles as the People’s Champion slowly came out and absorbed the atmosphere.

Theory quickly tried to take over but Rock told him to “shut your bitch ass up” to a big pop. He then proceeded to do the “Finally” line and fans ate it all up.

Theory said it’s great finally there’s Rock and Austin in the ring one more time, but this is a different Austin and an Austin who will be the entire Mount Rushmore. As soon as Rock tried to reply, Theory cut him off with “It doesn’t matter what you think!”

Rock then proceeded to split the crowd, with one half chanting “You are” and another half chanting “an asshole” and if he didn’t stop them after a few minutes, it would have went all night long. Impressive!

Rock told Theory that he was going the whoop his ass in three seconds but Theory jumped The Rock first but Rock quickly turned that into a spine buster and of course The People’s Elbow. Rock then invited McAfee to do his People’s Elbow too, which he did as well.
