Roman Reigns is the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion and has been infallible for the last two years. For very long time now, fans have been wondering when Roman Reigns and The Rock will battle each other at WrestleMania. That being said, it seems one veteran believes The Rock missing out on WrestleMania 39 won’t be a loss for WWE.

Many believe a match between the two top stars would become one of the greatest matches in the history of WrestleMania. Despite all the hype, the match is still on the top of many fans’ dream match lists.

Last year, Roman Reigns even called out The Rock during WWE live event. In fact, The Rock’s WWE return is 100% in the plans. Ringside News exclusively reported in December that WWE was pitching creative alternatives in case The Rock can’t make the show of shows.

In addition to that, WWE even dropped a huge vague hint about The Rock returning via the poster for the Royal Rumble Premium Live Event. Still, nothing has been confirmed when it comes to The People’s Champion.


While speaking on SmackTalk, Dutch Mantell talked about the possibility of The Rock not making it for WrestleMania 39. Mantell stated that he believes The Rock missing out on WrestleMania 39 won’t be a loss for WWE.

Well, if they can’t bring him back for this one, he still looks great. He’s gonna look next year; he’s gonna look great the year after that unless something unforeseen happens. So it is still open for him to come back, but we’re talking about this year.

Istill don’t think it’s a loss. I think they can still find their way to make the main event like they always do somehow. They do that. I keep going back to my 51th-week theory. If this doesn’t happen, this will, and then we’ll do this.

The Rock will likely duke it out with Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39, so a return from The Great One is more or less expected. We’ll have to wait and see whether The Rock will return during The Royal Rumble.
