WWE witnessed a huge event as The Rock surprised fans on the first day of RAW on January 1st. That appearance also led to Dwayne Johnson hinting that he might want to face off against Table Top. Obviously, this got a lot of attention going into WrestleMania.
Cody Rhodes was previously considered the favorite to face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania to complete his story. Now, with The Rock returning, the question arises: He may not end up playing in that match. There is also some support for booking The Rock vs Roman Reigns.
During Busted Open Radio, Mickie James discussed the possibility of The Rock facing Roman Reigns at WWE WrestleMania 40 instead of Cody Rhodes. She likes Cody, but WWE probably doesn’t want to miss The Rock vs. Roman Reigns on the grandest stage.
“You know, I love Cody. He’s my friend, he’s my brother, and I’m excited to see him shine. He’s just killing (it), but if I get a chance to see that, if I have The chance to watch Roman (Reigns) and Cody again at WrestleMania, or watch Roman and The Rock for the first time at WrestleMania, you better believe me look for Roman and The Rock.” “In my opinion, The Rock Johnson has full power in the wrestling world and can step onto any stage and call the shots.”
The Rock doesn’t appear often and he might want to compete at WrestleMania this year. This is obviously an interesting situation where anything is possible at this point.
We’ll have to see what happens in the future. WWE has a few options, and The Rock is obviously the top choice right now. Only time will tell if The Rock and Roman Reigns will finally meet at WrestleMania 40, but we’ll be here to give you all the updates you need.
