The jabroni-beating, pie-eating, industry-leading, the most electrifying man in sports entertainment: It is time that The Rockfinallycomes back to the WWE. The WWE is no stranger to bringing in legends to wrestle and ad d value to cards throughout the year. Goldberg, Kurt Angle, and even Shawn Michaels have all been brought back to sell tickets and get network subscriptions. However, The Rock has not returned to a WWE ring for a match since 2013.

Scott, who directed the movie, told the Daily Mail that Elba dropped to the sidewalk during the filming of this scene, thinking he had been shot.

"What happened was, I said to Idris: 'Listen, when he puts the gun to your head lean on the gun' — because by the way, this is a gun with a solid barrel, there is no aperture, I would never risk it — but when you pull the trigger there's a recoil, there's no blank, nothing," Scott said. "[Washington] pulled the trigger and it goes, 'Bang.' Idris thought he'd been shot and dropped to the sidewalk and said: 'I've been shot!'"

Paul Biddiss, a firearms expert working with Scott, explained to the Mail that a solid barrel meant that the gun had been filled in so no bullet could pass through, but it could still have the recoil effect.

Last month, Alec Baldwin fatally shot "Rust" cinematographer Hutchins and injured the film's director Joel Souza with a Colt revolver while rehearsing a scene. Authorities say that live ammunition had been loaded into the gun. According to an affidavit seen by Insider, David Halls, the assistant director of the movie, did not know the gun contained live rounds when he handed it to Baldwin.
