Rumors are swirling that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson could potentially step into the ring with his real-life cousin Roman Reigns for a 30-minute wrestling showdown at a future WWE WrestleMania event. Although The Rock declined WWE's offer for a match at WrestleMania 39 this year, he might consider participating in next year's event.
Speculations about a potential face-off between The Rock and Roman Reigns at WrestleMania XL gained momentum when it was reported that Triple H had ambitious plans to create an impressive lineup for the landmark show. As part of these plans, Triple H would likely reach out to The Rock and other big names to boost the event's star power.
No Official Plans for Reigns-Rock
However, WWE does not seem to be actively planning for a Reigns vs. Rock match, as recent reports suggest that Reigns may instead face one of his former rivals at WrestleMania XL. While The Rock initially doubts his ability to get into ring-ready shape for WrestleMania 39, former WWE Champion Kurt Angle begs to differ.
On his Kurt Angle podcast, Angle assured listeners that The Rock's dedication to fitness and rigorous training regimen would enable him to deliver a 30-minute main event match, as reported by Ringside News. Angle stated, "He trains hard and has been able to keep his body young and active.
He could still wrestle. He could put in a good 30-minute match at WrestleMania if he wants to. I don't doubt that for a second. It won't be a problem for him." Despite Angle's confidence in The Rock's capabilities, it must be emphasized that WWE currently has no concrete plans for a match between The Rock and Roman Reigns at WrestleMania XL or any other event in the foreseeable future.
Nonetheless, the prospect of these two wrestling superstars facing off in an epic, family-fueled showdown remains a tantalizing possibility for fans of the sport.
