Below are some top WWE news stories of the day, involving The Rock and Cody Rhodes.

• According to PWInsider, former WWE Head Writer Brian Gewirtz will play a key role as The Rock’s representative in WWE’s creative process moving forward.

There’s speculation that Gewirtz may be physically present at major shows, possibly serving as a contingency plan (“Plan B”) if Endeavor decides to shift WWE’s direction and opt for a creative team backed by Dwayne Johnson in the future.

Fightful Select is reporting that not only did The Rock push for the match against Roman Reigns, some even think he’s pushing for himself to be the man who finally defeats The Tribal Chief.

• There’s a belief that The Rock advocated for the main event at WrestleMania 40, likely due to financial incentives tied to specific milestones, such as his significant $30 million stock payday.

According to PWInsider, sources indicate that one of these milestones involved Dwayne Johnson’s return to the ring in the same year.

It’s suggested that The Rock pushed for the match with Roman Reigns sooner, emphasizing his belief that it would be a much more significant attraction for the company.

Consequently, regardless of injuries or other circumstances, the likelihood of Roman Reigns vs. Cody Rhodes taking place at WrestleMania XL was low because the key figures in company management were inclined to endorse and follow Dwayne’s ideas.

• DIY vs. Creed Brothers vs. Imperium vs. The New Day has been announced for Monday’s RAW. Winners of this match will face Pete Dunne & Tyler Bate in a #1 contenders match.

The #1 Contenders will face Finn Balor and Damian Priest for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship at Elimination Chamber in Australia.
