WWE icon The Rock produces ‘one of the greatest entrances of all time’ at WrestleMania return

The Rock did not disappoint with his WrestleMania entrance.

The Rock performed 'one of the greatest entrances of all time' at WrestleMania 40 and WWE fans could not get enough of it.

Legendary wrestler The Rock made his long-awaited return to WWE on Saturday night, as he appeared in a star-studded tag team fight on night one of WrestleMania 40.

Taking to the ring for the first time in over a decade, the WWE icon teamed up with cousin Roman Reigns to take on Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins in Philadelphia.

The Rock just about pulled off a winning return, although things could have turned out differently had he not recovered after Reigns accidentally speared him.

That shocking moment aside, one of the biggest talking points of the evening was The Rock's electrifying entrance to the arena.

With Lincoln Financial Field plunged into darkness, the big screen behind the stage lit up with the 'WrestleMania XL' logo in electrifying blue, with electrical zapping sounds building the tension.

A minute later the words 'final boss, engaged' appeared on screen and were announced to the crowd, before a ring of fire lit up on the stage in the shape of The Rock's bull logo.

Then came the man himself, standing defiantly among the flames wearing his trademark sunglasses and carrying a belt over his shoulder.

The belt was gifted to The Rock by the widow of the great Muhammad Ali during the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony on Friday, after the legendary boxer was posthumously inducted into the WWE HOF.

Before presenting The Rock with a People’s Championship belt, Yolanda Ali explained that he asked Ali permission to use the “People’s Champion” moniker back in 1998.

The belt only added to the spectacle of the entrance, and fans couldn't get enough.

"This entrance for The Rock. It's Aura, dawg," one fan said, while another labelled it "one of the greatest entrances of all time."

Others picked up on a quality few WWE stars have.

"This is what you call AURA," one fan noted, while another said, "He COOKED man!"
