Wrestling fans, there will be a familiar odor in the air for the next year-plus, and that would be the one wafting off of The Rock's cooking.  

In a press conference for WWE's WrestleMania XXX, which will be held at the Superdome in New Orleans on Sunday, April 6, 2014, The Rock announced that he will be on the ticket.

Here is the press conference (The Rock appears just after the 27-minute mark):

The Rock begins his announcement by giving a big shoutout to New Orleans. He makes it clear that the city has a special place in his heart.

Now, The Rock wants to help celebrate the city by participating in the WWE's showcase event. This is a long-reaching commitment for the ever-busy Dwayne Johnson.

In recent years, The Rock's participation in the company that launched him into stardom has been sporadic, to say the least.

However, he has been recently popping up and making a big splash—most notably with his feud and pinning of CM Punk in the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view on Sunday.

That splash is going to get even bigger as he is also scheduled to take on John Cena at this year's WrestleMania in what is shaping up to be the biggest main event in WWE history. 

While The Rock has made his return to the WWE, it has been clear that he still has it—it being the energy, passion, fitness and athleticism to pull off being a star. This isn't even mentioning his charisma. 

We are talking about one of the most charismatic characters in the history of the company, and not surprisingly, The Rock's time in Hollywood has only increased his ability to pull audiences in. 

As a result, this announcement should have most WWE fans grinning from ear to ear.
