Fast & Furious: Vin Diesel asks The Rock to return

It comes after a very public feud between the two Hollywood heavyweights.

In an Instagram post, Vin said The Rock has "a very important role to play", adding that his character Hobbs could not be played by anyone else.

"I hope you rise to the occasion and fulfil your destiny," Vin, who plays the lead role of Dominic Torreto, wrote.

The Rock (aka Dwayne Johnson) joined the Fast & Furious franchise as Agent Hobbs in Fast Five in 2011 - but the 49-year-old didn't appear in the most recent film and has previously said he wouldn't appear in future films.

The Rock puts muscle behind boot camp in HBO documentary

Dwayne Johnson, a.k.a. The Rock, lends his celebrity to the similarly themed "Rock and a Hard Place," which hews closer to reality TV than most of HBO's nonfiction efforts.

Dwayne Johnson opens up about depression battle

The Furious 7 star admits he struggled to relate to anyone but over time learned to realise he wasn't alone.

He said: "I found that with depression one of the most important things you could realise is that you're not alone.

"You're not the first to go through it, you're not going to be the last to go through it and often you feel like you're alone and you feel like it's only you and you're in your bubble. I wish I had someone at that time who could just pull me aside and [say], 'Hey, it's going to be okay.'"

The Rock Not Expected To Compete At WWE WrestleMania 32

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes that The Rock was originally scheduled to face Triple H in a match, but WWE’s creative team was told that The Rock and his friend Ronda Rousey now won’t be involved in any matches.

Since there is an injury risk associated with pro wrestling, the producers behind The Rock’s movie had an issue with him doing any kind of pro wrestling either before or while filming was going on. It’s easy to see why a movie company would feel that way since The Rock has picked up several injuries in last few matches.
