The Rock has appeared at 6 of the last 7 WrestleManias. And apparently, there’s an astronomically high chance he shows up in New Orleans to make it 7 for 8.
And, there's a reasonable chance he actually wrestles.
According to The Daily Star via Oddschecker, The Rock has been given a 99% chance of making a WrestleMania 34 cameo. Even more, there’s a 25/1 shot of him competing under the Superdome's lights. George Elek, a spokesperson for Oddschecker shared the following statement:

In 2018, anything The Rock does captivates a decent chunk of the globe. To think that WrestleMania 34 could see The Undertaker, John Cena, Roman Reigns, Ronda Rousey, Brock Lesnar, Kurt Angle, Triple H, Daniel Bryan, Shane McMahon, AJ Styles and now quite possibly The Rock, is outrageous. While this sentiment is already established, the expectations for WrestleMania 34 continue to balloon and we may be in for one of the best shows in WWE history.
Especially if 45-year old Hollywood star intends on wrestling.
If Rocky does decide to lace up his boots, his WrestleMania dancing partner would certainly be a surprise. At the moment, most of WWE's juicier names are already booked for the show, then again it was Erik Rowan who had an impromptu match with The Great One at WrestleMania 32.1comments
However, if there is a name to keep in mind, it's Elias. Given that The Rock has a guitar playing heel chapter of his own, a showdown between
We'll keep you posted as this one develops, but WWE would likely use The Rock as a WrestleMania surprise—despite the odds.
