The Rock Makes His Return to Fast and Furious

Seven years ago Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson had a knock-down drag out fight with Vin Diesel on the set of Fast and Furious and vowed never to return to the franchise again [click here if you missed that]. 

Looks like time healed the wound because Luke Hobbs is back in the Fast Universe...

From The Wrap
Surprise! Dwayne Johnson has returned to the “Fast and Furious” franchise, making an appearance in the post-credits sequence for the upcoming “Fast X,” out next Friday (May 19), TheWrap has exclusively learned.
What makes his return so shocking is how adamant Johnson was about not returning to the series. In November 2021, “Fast and Furious” franchise star and producer Vin Diesel took to Instagram, essentially to beg Johnson to return to the mainline franchise. In 2019, Johnson starred in “Hobbs & Shaw,” a spin-off with Jason Statham.
A month after Diesel’s social media appeal, Johnson told CNN: “I told [Diesel] directly that I would not be returning to the franchise. I was firm yet cordial with my words and said that I would always be supportive of the cast and always root for the franchise to be successful, but that there was no chance I would return. Vin’s recent public post was an example of his manipulation. I didn’t like that he brought up his children in the post, as well as Paul Walker’s death. Leave them out of it. We had spoken months ago about this and came to a clear understanding.”

MO money. Cryrese is exposable in the movie. He brings nothing valuable to the movie.
I read yesterday that Rock is in trouble with one of his female wrestlers. She is accusing him of inappropriate sexual behavior from the past. Disney is passing on him for a movie.

He is not aging well. Kind of looking like a lemon that's about to turn old.

He's not looking well because of those steroids drugs and aging.

It's also the TV show isn't slated to be renewed yet and he is having a little trouble with Disney. Also Black Adam didn't do well despite what he said.
