The wrestling world is abuzz with the latest developments surrounding Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's potential return to WWE. Recently, during a special Day 1 edition of Monday Night RAW, The Rock electrified fans with a tantalizing hint of a showdown against Roman Reigns.
This tease has reignited discussions about his participation in WrestleMania 40, especially following his new commitment with TKO Holdings Group. The matchup between The Rock and Roman Reigns, originally slated for WrestleMania 39, was postponed due to The Rock's demanding schedule and his inability to prepare physically for the bout.
Now, with WrestleMania 40 on the horizon, the prospect of this dream match finally materializing has fans on the edge of their seats.
The Rock's WrestleMania Uncertainty
Dave Meltzer, speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, clarified the current situation regarding The Rock's WrestleMania status.
As of now, The Rock hasn't officially signed on for the event. Despite his enthusiastic hints during an appearance on First Take, nothing is set in stone. The Rock's interest in participating in this year's WrestleMania is evident, yet there are strategic considerations at play.
There's a growing discourse around the potential value he could bring to an event in Saudi Arabia, with some parties advocating for this venue. The situation remains fluid, and definitive plans for WrestleMania 40 are yet to be confirmed.
Meltzer noted, "As far as WrestleMania goes, he has not signed as of today as far as I know for WrestleMania. He was on First Take and strongly hinted at it. It is absolutely in play and not a done deal. He wants to do WrestleMania this year.
Some forces are interested in how much value he could bring to Saudi Arabia but he would rather do WrestleMania as it stands now”. The idea of a match between The Rock and Roman Reigns has been touted as potentially the biggest match in wrestling history.
Fans and insiders alike are eagerly waiting to see if this epic encounter will come to fruition at the grand spectacle of WrestleMania. For now, the wrestling community watches and waits, hopeful that The Rock will grace the WrestleMania stage once more, in what could be a historic and unforgettable moment in professional wrestling history.
