The Rock has shaken up the whole wrestling industry with his WrestleMania 40 run. His story alongside Roman Reigns against Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins turned out to be a massive success and the results came out in the form of a historic edition of WrestleMania. 

The Rock has taken a break from WWE to cater to his Hollywood obligations. However, he still has two big matches lined up once he returns. One against Cody Rhodes who he has promised to come after once he returns. And the second is Roman Reigns who has been in line for match for months now. 

The Rock will clearly be in action at WrestleMania 41, but who he faces is still a mystery. In the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that The Rock is lined up for a match against Cody Rhodes as of now. A possible WWE Champion vs People’s Champion match is being planned. However, it is still unsure if Rhodes is set to hold the title until the Grandest Stage of them All. 

“At this point the show is scheduled to feature Cody Rhodes vs. The Rock. Dwayne Johnson’s idea is WWE title vs. People’s title. Those in WWE have noted that there is no guarantee Rhodes will be champion at that time, which is where the people’s belt comes in. But so many things can change over the course of a year.”


While Cody Rhodes vs The Rock would be one of the biggest matches of the year, using a stage like WrestleMania would postpone plans for the Rock and Roman Reigns. It would be interesting to see how things play out from here. 

Do you think The Rock vs Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania 41 would be a good idea? Let us know in the comments section below.
