WWE is revving up for WrestleMania 40, and one of the spotlighted stars slated for the grand event is none other than The Rock. As fans continue to speculate about The Rock’s role at WrestleMania, it seems that WWE has already brainstormed several potential scenarios for his involvement.

The Rock’s recent return to the WWE scene caused quite a commotion, momentarily stealing the limelight from Cody Rhodes’ WrestleMania 40 plans. Although the initial clash between them was swiftly resolved, The Rock’s presence left a lasting impression on a recent episode of SmackDown, leaving fans eagerly anticipating his next move.

During the recent Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event, Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins were prominently featured in segment dubbed the Grayson Waller Effect. In this segment, Rhodes directly challenged The Rock to a one-on-one match, boldly proclaiming his readiness for a showdown anytime, anywhere. Rollins further fueled the anticipation by suggesting that facing The Bloodline, The Rock’s faction, would never truly be a one-on-one affair, hinting at potential interference to aid Rhodes in the impending confrontation.

News surfaced earlier this week, disclosing proposed plans for a blockbuster matchup featuring Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins squaring off against Roman Reigns and The Rock on Night One of WrestleMania 40.


Ringside News has confirmed, following discussions with a seasoned member of the WWE Creative team, that this report holds some truth. However, it’s worth noting that this proposal is just one of many ideas being considered for WrestleMania 40 weekend involving The Rock.

“There are dozens of pitches. That’s one of them.” stated the creative team member.

Given the plethora of ideas revolving around The Rock, it’s plausible that WWE might ultimately opt for a singles showdown between Cody Rhodes and The Rock at WrestleMania 40.

With The Rock scheduled to appear on this week’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown, fans are eagerly awaiting his response to Cody Rhodes’ bold challenge. The Rock’s reaction could shed light on whether the encounter will manifest as a singles match or evolve into a tag team spectacle.
