A potential encounter between the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and The Rock at WrestleMania 39 has the fans buzzing over the matter. However, it was reported that that if The Rock doesn’t return to WWE, then it’ll likely be Cody Rhodes who’ll face The Tribal Chief at The Grandest Stage of Them All next year. It seems that ‘The Great One’ will make his return pretty soon.
The Rock confirms his return
During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Rock was asked if he would be returning to the ring, he said:
“Of course, yeah, always open to that. For sure.”
Recently, the former WWE Magazine writer Brian R. Solomon recently gave his take on the potential bout between two of the biggest stars of the Samoan lineage, Roman Reigns and The Rock. During a recent interview, Solomon also discussed the rumored match between The Rock and Reigns at WrestleMania 39. He stated that a match between the two cousins is bigger than the title.He recently spoke with the Cheap Heat Productions podcast and said that there aren’t too many options for The Tribal Chief right now:
“We’re thinking The Rock might be on the horizon for WrestleMania but like I’ve said before, they don’t need the title for that match. That match is bigger than the title. You can have Rock vs. Roman, Cody vs. somebody, maybe Brock for the title. The more I think about it, the more I think that might actually be what happens,” Solomon said.
As of now, Reigns is set to defend her title against Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam Premium Live Event on Saturday, July 30. Meanwhile, Rock’s new film “DC League of Super-Pets” is set to hit theaters on July 29.
