TAMPA -

Wrestling fans will be able to smell what The Rock is cooking – live - when World Wrestling Entertainment's "Monday Night Raw" returns to the Forum on Monday.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will be among the WWE stars performing during the show, which starts at 7 p.m.

"Raw" airs nationally on USA Network.

The event will also feature Tampa Bay area resident John Cena and Sheamus taking on Big Show and Dolph Ziggler. C.M. Punk is set to wrestle Ryback in a "tables, ladders and chairs match" for the WWE championship.

Tickets to the show, ranging from $20 to $95, are available through Ticketmaster.

Johnson has been appearing at select wrestling events since 2011, after taking a seven-year break from the WWE to star in films such as "The Rundown" and the "Fast and the Furious" franchise, but it's been more than a decade since he last wrestled in Tampa.

Other wrestlers scheduled to appear include Kane, Daniel Bryan, Randy Orton, Alberto Del Rio, Sin Cara and The Miz.
