Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated has seemingly shut down reports of The Rock appearing in a segment with Elias at WrestleMania 34 this year. Barrasso claims that while there were discussion to have him appear, WWE was unable to lock him in so the segment was scrapped.

“As for The Rock, Sports Illustrated can confirm that one of the original ideas discussed for WrestleMania was a musical segment with Elias that would have included Jeff Jarrett and a few others, with The Rock and his “Rock Concert” concept as the centerpiece of the segment. WWE was not able to get a firm commitment from The Rock, so that segment was scrapped. Unless there were renewed discussions, The Rock is not planned to be a part of WrestleMania.”

As mentioned here many times before, Barrasso’s track record hasn’t been the greatest as of late, so take what he says with a grain of salt.
