The Rock will bring it to Miami

To kick off The Road to WrestleMania 28 in Miami next year, WWE and the AmericanAirlines Arena are tag-teaming to, as The Rock would say, “bring it,’’ with WWE Monday Night Raw and the big man Monday.

After a seven-year hiatus from the mat, Dwayne Johnson will be there live to celebrate his 39th birthday that night with the hometown crowd (Raw begins live 9 p.m. on the USA Network).

The former Miami Hurricane can also be seen Friday on big screens in Fast Five.

So what do you give the guy who has everything? Preferably something sweet.

Johnson’s mother, SoFla resident Ata Maivia Johnson, told The Miami Herald: “He likes all cakes, but his favorite was the year Dunkin’ Donuts surprised him with a huge, colorful and delicious donuts cake.”

The Tooth Fairy star’s favorite present of all time? “He was 10, and he got his wish — an Atari video game.’’
