Booker T, speaking on a recent episode of the Hall of Fame Podcast, opined that WrestleMania would be the perfect timing if The Rock were to participate. He emphasized that WWE should not hesitate to greenlight this monumental match, stating, "There's discussion about it.
The hype is there. I think it's a methodology. I think it's more than anything else. They shouldn’t delay too much. That’s the way to go. If The Rock wants to do it, this is the best time for this match and for Roman. Roman is at the peak of his title run.
Nothing more significant could happen than this. So it's time to give the green light”.
