Fans have been buzzing about a possible blockbuster clash between The Rock and Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39 next year. A report recently emerged which provided an update on the possible clash. It noted that there is a clear idea for the match to happen at the Premium Live Event next year.
Reports had indicated that WWE was waiting to have this match in Los Angeles, leading to speculation that Dwayne Johnson will battle Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39 in California’s SoFi Stadium.
As per the reports of Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, the current plan is indeed for this bout to headline the April 2023 event:
“It’s the plan. It’s 100% the plan for this year (WrestleMania 39). But the idea is, it’s the plan if he can do it.
“We’re still months away, months and months away. So many opportunities and things like that may come up that are far more important than WrestleMania.”
Roman Reigns might face Cody Rhodes

“Before this goes round Its from Meltzer Its fake The main event is Roman vs Cody
