  • The Rock will be at WWE Smackdown, Feb. 12 at Verizon Arena.

So there's gonna be this Smackdown on Feb. 12 at Verizon Arena, and well, somebody pretty special is going to be there, smacking down various people.

His name is The Rock.

That's right, none other than Dwayne Johnson will be donning his tights and getting in the ring. The Rock in The Rock. Sweet!

So at this point, after so many face-heel turns in a career that has seen him go from flashy upstart to bona fide action movie star, is The Rock a face or a heel? As one might surmise, there has been a considerable amount of online discussion on the topic.

When he does stuff like this, I'm more inclined to say face. But when he does stuff like this, I'm more apt to say... well, I don't even know what I'd say about it except that surely it must be better than the sequel.

The press release with ticket details and the rest of the lineup is after the jump.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
