The Rock returned to the WWE yet again last night, showing up at the 2015 Royal Rumble in Philadelphia to beat down Kane and The Big Show and secure a win for Roman Reigns.

The former Shielf member was being victimised by the two other remaining superstars, when Johnson sprinted to the ring to deliver a People's Elbow to Kane and hit Show with a Rock Bottom.

He held Reigns arm in the air following his main event victory, appearing to back him for a WrestleMania win over Brock Lesnar.

Here's how it went down:

WWE clearly wanted it to be known that The Rock was going to make an appearance ahead of the event, thanks to this tweet:

And later one from Vince McMahon himself:

It remains to be seen whether The Rock will be appearing in the ring in the coming weeks, if he will take on a mentor type role or just return to laying the smackdown at the box office.

Other former WWE wrestlers made a return last night, including Bubba Ray Dudley and Diamond Dallas Page.
