Plans for The Rock at WrestleMania reportedly being discussed



WWE has reportedly begun laying out scenarios for a potential return of The Rock.

The Wrestling Observer is reporting that WWE is looking to get closer to finalizing plans for Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39. This includes laying out scenarios for the return of The Rock. The report indicates that discussions have taken place that would have The Rock return as the surprise entrant in the Royal Rumble match, win, and then go on to face Reigns at WrestleMania. The report also indicates that other scenarios are being discussed as well, which would still get to the super match between both men.

WrestleMania 39 will air live on Peacock from SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles on April 1 and April 2. Matches for the show have not been announced at this time.

I assume this is one of those Hunter-Batista type of things where Hunter was the only guy Batista wanted to come back to work with, so it was Batista vs. Hunter or no Batista at all, but I have very little interest in Rock vs. Roman, and wasting a Royale Rumble win and then a WrestleMania main event on a match where everyone knows Roman isn't losing feels like a big waste.
Why not have Rock make his return at Mania to set up the match at SummerSlam? There is no way that doing this at SummerSlam will get less media attention than doing it at Mania, because the reason for all of the media attention will be The Rock.

Everyone knows that it has to be Roman. But I agree with you, let’s not waste an entire Wrestlemania season, figure something else out instead.
Have A Nice Day!
