“IT’S OFFICIAL,” the Central Intelligence actor, 43, captioned a throwback clip of himself in the ring. “People’s Champ is coming home to do 3 things with THE PEOPLE: Set an ALL-TIME attendance record, ELECTRIFY Dallas like never before & make all time #WRESTLEMANIA history. And we have FUN. Ok that’s four things but you know what the hell The Rock’s saying.”

The dad of two — who competed in the WWE from 1996 to 2004, later returning part-time from 2011 to 2013 — retired from the league after WrestleMania 29 in 2013. While he made an appearance at WrestleMania 31 earlier this year, he did not fight.

“THANK YOU #WWEUniverse,” Johnson continued. “It’s always an honor coming home and I wouldn’t miss it for the world.”

WrestleMania 32 is set to take place in April 2016. In the meantime, the Fast Five star has his hands full with his new baby girl, Jasmine. The actor and longtime girlfriend Lauren Hashian welcomed their first child together on December 16.

“Christmas came early!” the wrestling star captioned a sweet Instagram pic that showed the shirtless action hero cradling his bundle of joy. “Within minutes of being born she was laying on daddy’s chest. And being a grateful man takes on a whole new meaning. Kinda crazy but in this cool and powerful skin to skin bonding moment with my newborn baby Jasmine, I had just one wish I asked the universe … Give me the strength to be a better man today than I was yesterday.”
