If WWE wants to set attendance records at AT&T Stadium in Texas for WrestleMania 32, a legendary return will likely be needed.

One week before this year's WrestleMania, "The Rock" Dwayne Johnson addressed a potential in-ring return to face Brock Lesnar at WM32.

“In Dallas? Possibly. There’s a lot of things that are up in the air. We’ll see. I would love that re-match. Whatever it is I think that you want to create something that is going to be special, memorable, and especially in Dallas at that stadium and you have a shot at breaking the attendance record," Rock told entertainment reporter Chris Van Vliet at a press junket for the next "Fast" movie.

Rock's name has been part of the build-up to this year's Mania main event between Lesnar and Roman Reigns. Lesnar beat Rock for the Undisputed Title at Summerslam 2002, which would create a 14-year gap between the re-match at WM32.

As for this year's Mania, Rock made it sound like he will be at Levi's Stadium to follow up on endorsing Reigns at the Royal Rumble in January. In the interview, Rock interestingly offer a candid assessment of Reigns's progression.

“Ready to headline WrestleMania and ready to be the Champ are two different things. I think that he’s in a unique position. He’s being pushed quickly, I was in that position before so I know what it’s like, but at the same time you either sink or swim so you’ve got no choice but to be ready," Rock said.

"Fans have expressed their displeasure in it and that is the best part about the WWE Universe is that they’re so vocal and passionate about how they feel. I think he’s going to go out with Brock, who I’ve known for a very long time, and they’re going to have a hell of a match and that’s what I expect."
