WWE’s original plans for The Rock at Wrestlemania

The Rock

The Rock is currently enjoying his success as an actor in Hollywood, with his movies breaking box office records one after another. So he never has time to wrestle anymore.

According to WrestleVotes, WWE’s original plan for The Rock included him entering the Royal Rumble as a surprise entrant. He would then win the match, thus setting up a Wrestlemania main event between The Rock and Roman Reigns.

However, that plan is no longer applicable due to Roman Reigns’ leukemia announcement in October.

WrestleVotes speculated that Rock could still win the Rumble and challenge Brock Lesnar for the Universal title at Wrestlemania. It has already been reported that Vince McMahon has been wanting a Brock vs The Rock match for a long time now.

Nothing is confirmed as of yet, so the match might not even happen. We will have to wait until we get more updates on the matter.

    no one is going to boo the rock if he wins

    Yeah yeah, there is absolutely no evidence to back this up so will take the story with a pinch of salt.
    Just because Vince had the idea does not mean any approach has been made or offers declined or accepted.

    Ahhh yes. Vince’s genius at work. Providing us with over-the-hill veterans (except for Roman Reigns) taking top matches at WM for the past umpteen years.

    Terrible idea. People may love the Rock, but no one wants to see him come back as a surprise and win the Rumble. Did Vince learn nothing from the whole Boo-tista debacle? No, no he didn’t.
