However, the triple excitement only left fans delirious, with nostalgic anticipation and expectations given birth to by an announcement on WWE SmackDown. Comeback of one of the greatest and most iconic wrestlers- The Rock-has come back to WWE, first selling tickets for him and Roman Reigns vs Cody Rhodes, and Seth Rollins tag match at WrestleMania 40.

Direct from Glendale, Arizona, during the live broadcast, The Rock took this opportunity to cut a promo that will undoubtedly go down as being one of the greatest in the history of professional wrestling. It is just that there were a few technical glitches in the interim that caused for an abbreviated across-the-screen promo, a production decision that left many fans and former WWE manager Dutch Mantell—scratching their heads in confusion—but, nonetheless, the gist of The Rock's message did come through loud and clear.

He said that he is ecstatic to join Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins in a match that no one can describe the stipulations for. As quoted at, should Rhodes and Rollins win; The Bloodline would be barred from ringside in the title match on Night Two.

But if they should lose, then The Rock and The Bloodline will have all at stake when they make sure that Roman Reigns retains his title.

Production Glitches Critiqued

This was definitely a serious issue because it detracted from the charisma that The Rock had presented in his promo, so full of wit, humor, and one-liners that the fans could not help but love.

On the other hand, Dutch Mantell criticized that there were some plentiful feed cuts of the production at The Rock that he suggested perhaps a more relentless focus on The Rock may be more powerful. Come the 40th WrestleMania, and fans will be having their eyes set ahead on this tag team clash with a twist in the tale.

More speculative are wrestling enthusiasts about the response of Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins to the high offering of The Rock. Elevated interest comes because of the high stakes as well as the fact that no one else is the undisputed world champion of the WWE at present.

This event looks like an affair from yesteryear in the history of the WrestleMania extravaganza. The match was, in a nutshell, the very essence of WrestleMania—high stakes, legendary athletes, and moments certainly engraved for years to come.

There's no doubt that the wrestling world is waiting with bated breath for the next outcome. The buzz around the 40th edition of WrestleMania is touching newer heights as fans look forward to watching duels such as The Rock versus Roman Reigns and Cody Rhodes versus Seth Rollins—a mega-clash on the biggest stage of wrestling.
