Johnson, 38, appeared in a clip aired during Monday night's episode of WWE Raw with the news that he would be returning to the world of spandex and elbow-drops for wrestling's biggest night.
Wearing his sunglasses inside, The Rock hypes up his upcoming performance with his signature catch-phrase, his signature eyebrow raise and a bizarre tongue-wiggling.
"Do you smell what The Rock is cooking? The Rock has come back to Wrestlemania," he says. "The most electrifying man of all of entertainment is hosting the most electrifying event of all of entertainment!"
Johnson left WWE after Wrestlemania XX in 2004 to make movies. After starring in films like The Scorpion King, Walking Tall and last year's Faster, the action hero looks like he's been itching to really hit people again.
WrestleMania XXVII will take place on April 3, 2011, in Atlanta. In the meantime, check out The Rock introduce himself in the clip below (and unless I'm seeing things, keep an eye out for the tattoo switcheroo in the promo photo at the end).
