The Rock ‘Turned Down’ Huge WrestleMania Match

When The Royal Rumble came around, social media exploded with rumors of The Rock making his WWE return and facing Roman Reigns in a dream match. Sadly, we never got that. However, we may be seeing The Rock very soon elsewhere.



Dave Meltzer wrote in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that The Rock did not want to wrestle at this year’s show, “Whatever talk of Reigns vs. Dwayne Johnson we were told would not happen this year because IF Johnson wants one more match, it’s going to be a full stadium and preferably Los Angeles.”

Vince Russo and Billi Bhatti discussed tons of Wrestlemania news and leaks on a recent episode of ‘The Nitty Gritty Dirt Sheet’. Within this discussion, they touch on The Rock making his comeback, and why a few weeks ago a return was not possible for this year’s WrestleMania.

Bhatti: “The announcement comes here [for WrestleMania in Los Angeles]-everything is interlinked. The Rock is not doing Wrestlemania because around about this period here they have the realization that The Rock’s not gonna be coming in and they aren’t gonna be going to LA. So, they are gonna be doing this out of Florida. They’re not using The Rock in Tampa Bay now.”

It looks like we may not see The Rock back in WWE anytime soon at this rate unfortunately, but finally, someday we will.
