The road to WWE WrestleMania 40 has been nothing short of tumultuous, particularly regarding the anticipated main event clash between Roman Reigns and Cody Rhodes.

In a matter of weeks, the match has been confirmed, shelved, and then revisited. Adding to the intrigue, The Rock has thrown his hat into the ring, aligning himself with The Bloodline faction, while Seth Rollins has set aside his differences with Rhodes to unite forces for the WWE cause. The narrative took a surprising twist at Elimination Chamber in Perth, where Rhodes directly challenged The Rock to a showdown, prompting Rollins to pledge his support in the battle against The Bloodline.

The prospect of The Bloodline facing off against Rhodes and Rollins has ignited fervor among WWE fans, with rumors swirling that this epic clash could headline night one of WrestleMania 40, as speculated by Dave Meltzer on a recent edition of Wrestling Observer Radio. Such a matchup would entail Rollins and Reigns pulling double duty during WrestleMania weekend, defending their respective championships on night two.

While the Reigns vs. Rhodes encounter has been confirmed for some time, Rollins is slated to defend the WWE World Heavyweight Championship against Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 40. McIntyre’s triumph in the men’s Elimination Chamber match further solidified his contention for the title.


As of yet, The Rock and Reigns have yet to respond to Rhodes’ challenge issued at Elimination Chamber. However, anticipation mounts for potential developments, with speculation rife that The Bloodline may address the issue during their appearance on the March 1 edition of Smackdown.
