The headline event between Roman Reigns and Cody Rhodes has been a rollercoaster ride, as it gears towards the biggest show, WrestleMania 40. First, the match had been set, then taken off the card, and re-put on a couple of different times.

Much to everyone's surprise, The Rock had already been involved with an over-the-top storyline into which he has now added fuel. In that background, there was going to be one more amazing conversation: AEW superstar Cody Rhodes grabbed the mic and said at this Elmination Chamber event in Perth, Western Australia.

The fearless challenge was met with an even more fearless declaration from Rollins, who promised that he will stand on the opposite side of Rhodes against the strength of The Bloodline. That leads fans to anxiously await a colossal tag team match yet to be determined as a first-night main event at WrestleMania 40.

Pro wrestling journalist extraordinaire Dave Meltzer reported this speculation with "Wrestling Observer Radio" and added that this match may actually go on last at WrestleMania Night 1. They have even bigger shoes to fill this time, as Rollins and Reigns will have to pull double duty at the annual event since they are also scheduled to wrestle in title defenses slated for the Saturday edition.

Rhodes' Bold Challenge

Reigns vs. Rhodes had been fairly considered an official confirmation itself, but Rollins will defend the WWE World Heavyweight Title against Drew McIntyre. It earned that spot of course, considering his win in the men's Elimination Chamber match in Perth.

And since the Bloodline are supposed to show up on the March 1 show, wrestling fans wait with bated breath for The Rock's and Reigns' responses to Rhodes' challenge that is sure to add another interesting angle. As more relationships unfold at WrestleMania 40 with further turns in loyalties and animosities, audiences and fans are certain to witness one hell of a show that they will recall in fond memory over the years.
