Here are the notes and news items from the world of pro wrestling: Has The Rock wrestled his last match?

• Johnson’s hip surgery this week was deemed a success.

• Speaking of Wrestlemania 29, it was the highest grossing event in WWE’s history. It brought in $72 million, which is about $5 million more than Wrestlemania 28.
