The Rock was on the victory side at WrestleMania 40 Saturday teaming up with Roman Reigns to defeat Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins, making the main event for Night 2 a Bloodline Rules match.

Of course, Cody Rhodes defied all odds and ended Roman Reigns’ historic title to become the new WWE Champion, while also leaving the door open for a potential future feud with The Rock following the events that transpired on the RAW after WrestleMania 40.
