According to Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE is hoping for Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson to return for SmackDown Live's first episode on FOX. WWE is trying to make it a huge debut on FOX with big stars to show up on the debut episode. Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson was in Hawaii recently on July 24, as he joined the protesters in the city against the construction of a giant telescope on Mauna Key, Hawaii's tallest mountain. Dwayne joined the 10th day of protest as the protesters want to stop the construction of the 30-meter telescope on the mountain.

This is because they feel that the mountain is sacred for them and it already holds a number of telescopes.

According to, Dwayne was quoted as saying, "What I realized today, and obviously I've been following this for years now, is that it's bigger than a telescope. It's humanity. It's culture."
