While making the media rounds promoting this weekend's domestic U.S. release of "Journey 2," The Rock addressed his wrestling return at WrestleMania 28, took more worked-shoot digs at John Cena, and took a passive-aggressive approach to addressing long-time rival Triple H in an interview with Moviefone.com.

-- On training for his return singles match at WrestleMania 28 during a busy movie schedule, Rock said, "You fit it in, that's what you do. I make sure there's a ring on location with me, anywhere that I shoot. I had a ring down in New Orleans, when I was preparing for the Madison Square Garden event. I have a ring down in Florida, a ring down in Louisiana; there's always a ring close by. In order to prep for WrestleMania, it's a lengthy training camp that requires daily work inside the ring because you can't simulate the physicality of professional wrestling."

-- On facing John Cena and working with WWE CEO Vince McMahon again, Rock said, "I'm excited about WrestleMania; to be able to go back, team up with Vince and make a big vision like that come to life and create the biggest match-up of all time is very special to me. There's countless matches that have moved me and inspired me, and we're going to do something very special down in Miami, my hometown, sold-out Sun Life Stadium. Boots to John Cena's ass... The only trouble he's going to have is removing my size 15 boot from his ladyparts."

-- In a word association on WWE wrestlers playing roles in Hollywood movies, Rock said about Triple H, "The small pipsqueak of a body, what do you call it?" The interviewer replied, "A henchman?" Rock replied, "No, because henchmen are big and bad. [Laughs] I'm kidding, guy's an animal."

Rock closed the word association by saying Cena could have the role of "the female lead."
