The biggest WrestleMania of all time has been made even bigger with the addition of a marquee match for The Show of Shows this year, so the fans got a little preview on tonight’s edition of SmackDown.

The Rock and Roman Reigns came to SmackDown to confront their rivals, Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins who were expected to answer the challenge laid by The Rock for an explosive tag team at WrestleMania Night 1.

The confrontation saw a heated exchange of words between the duo before Seth Rollins accepted the challenge on behalf of his team.

However, it was at the conclusion of the show that The Rock launched a verbal tyrant on The American Nightmare, bringing up his family and labeling him as a mistake of his clan. This led to Cody losing his cool and smacking The Rock, reminiscent of what The People’s Champion did a few weeks ago.


Ringside News correspondent revealed that post-show events that happened following Cody slapping The Rock. It was revealed that he intensely stared down one of his WrestleMania opponents, before simply walking off with Roman Reigns as his theme song played through the entire American Airlines arena in Dallas, Texas.

While The Rock chose to hold back his punches tonight on SmackDown, he would be now agitated more than ever to destroy Cody Rhodes and make sure his Story does not reach his conclusion at WrestleMania 40.

What are your thoughts on the post-SmackDown events that happened? Do you think The Rock should have retaliated instead of just walking away? Sound off in the comments!
