The Rock’s impactful return briefly overshadowed Cody Rhodes’ anticipated WrestleMania 40 slot, creating some uncertainty. However, the situation was eventually resolved. The Rock is now a full-fledged heel and will obviously be involved at WrestleMania 40. Due to this, Michael Chandler made a very bold prediciton for The Rock.

Fans were simply outraged when it seemed as if The Rock vs Roman Reigns was going to be the main event of WrestleMania 40, something that many people did not want whatsoever.

In case you missed it, Michael Chandler called out Conor McGregor for fight inside the Octagon during this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW. He certainly made a major statement with his appearance.

While speaking with Sports Illustrated, Michael Chandler shared his unique prediction for WrestleMania 40. While many fans expect Cody Rhodes to finish his storyline at ‘The Show of Shows’ or Roman Reigns to continue his championship dominance, Chandler presented an out-of-the-box prediction instead. He believes The Great One will enter the world title match and emerge as the new Champion.


“I got The Rock taking the title. He’s coming back to shock everybody. All the doubters, all the naysayers, all the crybabies, The Rock is about to put an ass-whooping on all of them.”

Michael Chandler also claimed that he signed contract after his Monday Night RAW appearance. Nonetheless, fans will be closely watching The Rcok whenever he appears on screen, as they still fear he might insert himself into the WrestleMania 40 main event anyway. It remains to be seen whether Michael Chandler’s prediction will come true in the end.
