• Former WWE Champion Not Returning For WrestleMania 38
A “Dream Match” between Roman Reigns and The Rock has been rumored and teased for many years now.
Those rumors increased when Reigns turned heel last year and became “The Tribal Chief”, thus planting seeds for a perfect feud with his cousin, The Great One.
Some reports recently stated that WrestleMania 38 main event plans depend on The Rock’s availability.
However, Ringsidenews has published a report, where their source stated that Rock vs. Reigns was never planned for WrestleMania 38 in Dallas:
“Reigns is not wrestling Rock at WrestleMania in Dallas. This has been the rumor forever and it’s never been the plan, ever.”
We have noted in the past that The Rock does want to put over Roman in a match, which would most likely be his final match.
If not WrestleMania 38, then WrestleMania 39 seems the next perfect option, when WWE goes Hollywood (which was the original plan for WrestleMania 37, but got changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic).
