The Rock is legendary figure in professional wrestling and still has a strong connection to the industry despite his success in Hollywood. With his star power, he elevates any project he is involved with, making his appearances a highly anticipated event. His WrestleMania 39 status continues to be a huge topic of discussion even now. In fact, there is the possibility of him wrestling in a squash match at the Show of Shows.

Wrestling fans have long awaited a Roman Reigns vs. The Rock match at WrestleMania. WWE has teased and hyped the potential bout, fueling the excitement and anticipation of fans.

However, fans came to the realization that WWE will no longer be happening. This is because The Rock simply couldn’t be ready in time to wrestle at WrestleMania 39. The Rock was also working all night during the same time as the Royal Rumble.

While speaking during Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that The Rock could do a three-second squash match at the Show of Shows, if nothing else.


Dwayne’s not wrestling anybody else on the show unless it’s a three-second match. I mean, he could go do that, he could do an angle. He did not feel that he had the time to get into the shape he needed to be in to do a WrestleMania caliber main event, and left the door open for next year.

As previously reported, The Rock could still appear at WrestleMania 39, so a squash match could happen. He did the same at WrestleMania 32, where The Rock destroyed Erick Rowan. We’ll have to see what WWE will have planned for him in the end.
