Dwayne Johnson parted ways with the ‘Fast and the Furious’ franchise after doing four films. The reason behind it is the infamous feud between him and the series’ lead star Vin Diesel.
However, the former WWE wrestler has changed his mind it seems. According to a report from The Wrap, The Rock has given a cameo as Luke Hobbs in ‘Fast X’. Earlier, Johnson had stated that he only agreed to do ‘The Fate of the Furious’ because the two had no scenes together.
In November 2021, Diesel wrote an Instagram post, asking Johnson to return to the franchise. He even mentioned his children and Paul Walker’s death in the same post. This further complicated things between the two. Johnson has been firm that he won’t return to the franchise.
