The Rock’s reemergence in WWE, particularly his recent appearances alongside Roman Reigns, has sparked mix of excitement and contemplation among fans. Since his notable confrontation with Reigns on the February 2nd episode of WWE SmackDown, speculation has been rife about a potential WrestleMania showdown between the two.

However, the storyline took an unexpected turn when Rock and Reigns joined forces against Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins. This shift came amidst fan support for Rhodes, who initially stepped aside to make room for The Rock.

LA Knight, speaking on Busted Open Radio, offered his perspective on The Rock’s return and the ensuing storyline alterations. Knight weighed the pros and cons, stating, “It depends how they are coming into the fold and what they’re doing.” He acknowledged The Rock’s immense global appeal across various media but also highlighted the importance of considering audience preferences and storyline coherence.

Knight emphasized the existing momentum in WWE, suggesting that while The Rock’s presence could enhance it, there’s also a risk of it appearing self-serving and potentially alienating certain fans.


Expressing his viewpoint, Knight pointed out, “I hear him say wrestling is cool again and he’s right. However, I want to make sure everybody knows it started getting cool again six or seven months before he got there. I’m not saying he can’t add to that cool factor or that he won’t. I’m just saying, wrestling is cool again and wrestling was cool again before he came back. I don’t want it to seem like all of a sudden it happened because of him. Nah nah.”

Looking ahead, The Rock is scheduled to compete at WrestleMania 40 alongside Reigns against Rhodes & Rollins, promising a significant moment for fans worldwide. Meanwhile, LA Knight gears up for his WrestleMania 40 bout against AJ Styles, ready to showcase his skills on the grand stage.

As the wrestling world anticipates these monumental matchups, it prompts reflection on the evolving landscape of sports entertainment. How do you perceive The Rock’s impact on WWE’s current narrative, and what are your expectations for WrestleMania 40? Share your thoughts and predictions below.
