Fans of WWE have been eagerly anticipating Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's return to the ring. Many people were left wondering when they would see the legendary wrestler-turned-actor back in the WWE ring after hearing that he was absent from WrestleMania 39.
However, a preliminary update regarding his potential return for WrestleMania 40 has recently surfaced. Last year, it was accounted for that WWE had plans for a headliner match between The Stone and Roman Rules at WrestleMania 39.
The Rock reportedly did not have enough time to prepare for his return to the ring, as the match did not occur. In the main event at WrestleMania 39, Cody Rhodes, the winner of the Royal Rumble, took on Roman Reigns. Many fans, who had anticipated that Reigns would face The Rock, were surprised by the match's outcome.
The Rock's Potential WrestleMania 40 Appearance
Notwithstanding, as per Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Spectator Radio, The Stone will likely show up at WrestleMania 40 in 2024. Meltzer pointed out that despite declining the opportunity to appear at WrestleMania 39 due to scheduling conflicts, The Rock had left the door open for a possible appearance.
It is important to note that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has not yet committed to any dates with WWE, even though there is speculation that he will appear at WrestleMania 40. In addition, it is essential to remember that his participation in the occasion is still being determined.
Given that Roman Reigns has defeated most of the roster's elite opponents, it would not be surprising if WWE considered bringing The Rock back to the ring. The Rock may or may not make an appearance at WrestleMania 40, but for the time being, it is a promising development for those hoping for a return to the WWE.
On April 6-7, 2024, the Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, will host WrestleMania 40. It is a promising development for those anticipating The Rock's return to the WWE, but it will be interesting to see if he appears at the event.
