Given the impeccable work he has done in the acting industry including his entry in the Fast and Furious franchise, his return to WWE is still a question. While fans continue to wait for The Rock to get back to his wrestling roots, his Fast X co-star, Charlize Theron had shown great interest to join WWE!

Charlize Theron is a renowned actress who has established herself among the top leading action actresses in the Hollywood industry. She has worked in many action films including the Fast and Furious franchise. She is set to play the role of a cyberterrorist, Cipher in the upcoming Fast X film alongside Dwayne Johnson who will reprise his role as Luke Hobbs during the post-credits scene.
Back in 2020, the actress in an interview with WWE star Kofi Kingston expressed to try her luck in wrestling. When Kingston talked that she had a future in the sport, she shared,
“Wow, is this an invite? Yes! When and where?”
“I know we‘re in a crisis situation right now, so it’s not any time soon. But that sounds awesome and I will get my a** kicked. So that would be really entertaining for everybody to watch because I am a mere actor.”
She was very candid about how WWE for her won’t be happening soon at the time given the fact that she already was jam-packed with her projects. Not just that, there was another factor that further hindered her from getting involved in wrestling.
Charlize Theron Has No Martial Arts Background for WWE

To challenge the wrestlers who dedicate their everything to the sport, would not be an easy feat, especially for her. While having no martial arts background is a disadvantage for her, it didn’t stop her from proving her potential in action flicks. Her background in ballet helped her flexibly perform the action sequences.
“I have zero martial arts background. I do have a background in ballet, I was a ballerina for the first part of my life, that was my first career. Strangely, I was a physical storyteller before I was a verbal one.”
Even though her WWE appearance might not become a reality, she is returning to the action genre this May with her upcoming film, Fast X. It will be released first in parts of Europe on May 17 meanwhile the film will run in theatres in the United States on May 19.
Meanwhile, fans are hoping to see their wrestler-turned-actor, The Rock have a comeback to the ring at WrestleMania 40.
