The Rock is one of the iconic figures to come back into the lap of professional wrestling, and this time it would be to etch his name once more in the annals of WWE at this year's WrestleMania. Known to be like an imploding dynamite with its electrifying presence and unmatched charisma, "The Great One" has always been an inseparable part of the world of wrestling, capturing the audiences not only through performance but also through phenomenal feat records in ways never seen before.

Only about eight days before WrestleMania 40 and it is already going to be a huge event for The Rock as he gets set to buckle up for another history. He gets set to headline in the very exciting main event of this event when he teams up with Roman Reigns.

And this chance to headline in the main event of WrestleMania will put The Rock in that pantheon of the greatest to do so in four different decades. The journey for The Rock started at WrestleMania 15 when reflected on his incredible history to defend his WWF Championship against Stone Cold Steven Austin only to fall, starting at WrestleMania 16, got involved in a Fatal 4-Way match to defend WWF from The Rock with Triple H, Mick Foley, and Big Show only for Triple H to carry the day.

He also continued with his rivalry with Stone Cold Steve Austin where in one of the biggest WrestleManias 17, in No Disqualification match for WWF Championship, The Rock was unable to retain his title. In WrestleMania 28 and 29, The Rock continued with another of his feuds with John Cena that had started back in 2009 and in what had become one of the most feuds too with WWE before eventually lost the feud at WrestleMania 29 after they had gone at it for three years.

That heaps high stakes, then, on WrestleMania 40, as The Rock and Roman Reigns win or lose in the tag matches they're each cornered in against Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins. If Rhodes or Reigns are part of a winning match, Night 2 will technically feature the main event barricaded from outside interference from The Bloodline.

However, the win for them and Reigns would ensure a match the next at "Bloodline Rules", and a completely new layer of interest and tactics will have been added to the match. His participation turned it into a historic event because, for any fan, pure and simple—The Rock was the big name in the wrestling world, an unparalleled drawing force with the fans.

That event, WrestleMania 40, is going to be that which will be pointing backwards to one of the greatest of the greats who ever stepped inside the ring.
