The recent transition of The Rock into a heel persona has injected WWE programming with a revitalizing and exhilarating energy. The Rock found himself surprised when a fan questioned why he believed he deserved a shot at the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at WrestleMania 40.

Originally slated to face his cousin Roman Reigns, the reigning champion, for the prestigious title on the Grandest Stage of Them All, WWE faced significant backlash from fans. Consequently, the company made a last-minute adjustment, leading to Cody Rhodes being granted another opportunity to conclude his narrative this Sunday night.

During a recent WWE World event appearance, The Rock faced a surprising question from a young fan about why he believed he deserved a shot at the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at WrestleMania XL. The Great One, along with many others present, was taken aback by the query. It took The People’s Champion 20 seconds to formulate a response.

“What made The Rock think the title shot was his to begin with? Very easy. A few things, number one, The Rock is The Great One. Number two, The Rock, is the most electrifying man the world has ever seen. Number three, The Rock is the Final Boss, which means he comes in whenever he wants, does whatever he wants, says whatever he wants.”


The Rock also plans to give a surprise gift to Cody Rhodes’ mother. We will have to wait and see how The Rock and Roman Reigns will fare against Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 40 Night One.
