I thought it was that Thor needed a vessel on this plane and that was currently Blake. I dunno, it's kind of a useless mechanic and I'm not really sure anyone gives a crap about Blake (I don't.)
There was a time when Thor didn't turn into Blake anymore. Blake became a flesh and blood human being instead of just a construct. In the recent series, Thor came back to life after Ragnorok though Blake, renewing their bond. This time around though, Blake seems to be separate from Thor and "swapping" places with him when Thor is needed.
As for the "convenient rock" bear in mind almost no one can move the hammer Mjolnir. I'm suspecting SHIELD, unable to move it, carved around the base.
