In an exciting development that has fans buzzing, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, a prominent member of the TKO Group Holdings Board of Directors, is set to be joined by none other than Cody Rhodes on the upcoming episodes of "WWE SmackDown." Rhodes, primarily known for his appearances on "WWE Raw," made an announcement via X (formerly Twitter), revealing his plans to be present at the next three "WWE SmackDown" episodes.

This move places him in close proximity to The Rock, igniting speculation about their burgeoning rivalry. Additionally, Rhodes is set to face off against Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40, further intensifying the drama.

The storyline thickens as members of The Bloodline have yet to respond to Rhodes' challenge, issued during a special segment of "The Grayson Waller Effect" at the Elimination Chamber. With WrestleMania on the horizon, the presence of these three superstars, alongside WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins, promises to deliver a riveting build-up.

Rollins, lurking on the periphery, adds another layer of intrigue to the unfolding narrative.

WrestleMania 40 Showdown

A pivotal moment occurred at the WrestleMania 40 Kickoff event in Las Vegas, where Rhodes boldly challenged Reigns and confronted The Rock.

This confrontation followed Rhodes' dramatic decision to reclaim a main event title match, a spot he had nearly conceded to The Rock just days before. Adding to the anticipation, World Heavyweight Champion Rollins is scheduled to appear at this Friday's "WWE SmackDown" in Glendale, Arizona.

With his focus seemingly diverted from Drew McIntyre, the men's Elimination Chamber winner, to the escalating conflict between Rhodes and The Bloodline, speculation is rife about Rollins' potential involvement in the storyline.

Rumors are swirling about a possible tag team showdown featuring Rhodes and Rollins against The Rock and Reigns, which could serve as a climactic battle on the first night of WrestleMania 40. As these developments unfold, the WWE Universe is on the edge of its seat, eagerly awaiting the next chapters in this high-stakes drama.

The road to WrestleMania 40 is proving to be a rollercoaster ride of alliances, confrontations, and potential showdowns, promising an unforgettable spectacle for fans worldwide.
