As WrestleMania 40 approaches, WWE finds itself in an enviable position with a plethora of main event-level talent, including Cody Rhodes, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, all caught in a web of intertwining storylines.

During a segment on "Busted Open Radio," wrestling icon Bully Ray offered his insight into the unfolding drama, suggesting that the actions of Night 1 could significantly impact the developments of Night 2. Bully Ray delved into the dynamics of these storylines, hinting at the possibility of Rhodes challenging The Rock, which could set the stage for a unique match configuration.

He speculated, "Imagine Rhodes facing The Rock on Night 1, only to go up against Reigns on Night 2." This theory emerged in light of a recent WrestleMania commercial that showcased all four superstars in a potential clash, leading Bully to ponder another exciting possibility: "Could we see The Rock and Roman team up against Cody and Seth on Night 1? The way that commercial was shot, with all four superstars converging, suggests we might not just see singles matches."

Raw's Dream Matchup

Expanding on his predictions, Bully Ray raised an intriguing question: "What if Cody vs.

The Rock took place in Brooklyn on 'WWE Raw'?" He argued that such a matchup would not only be a massive draw but also occupy a significant portion of the broadcast, given the star power involved. However, Bully expressed reservations about the feasibility of a singles match between Rhodes and The Rock at WrestleMania itself, citing the logistical challenge of allocating ample ring time for The Rock.

Bully Ray emphasized the strategic approach WWE might take by initiating a tag team match at WrestleMania, which would serve to "insulate and protect" The Rock, much like the planned tag team match for Sting's retirement.

According to Bully, while a singles confrontation between Rhodes and The Rock seems inevitable, kicking things off with a tag team match at WrestleMania could be the perfect precursor to a larger storyline. This careful orchestration underscores WWE's knack for storytelling, ensuring that each move sets the stage for grander narratives, making WrestleMania 40 a must-watch event for fans worldwide.
