The Rock vs Roman Reigns WWE WrestleMania 38 WrestleFeed App

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

• 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.

• According to PWInsider, WWE officials were originally discussing Cody Rhodes defeating Roman Reigns in the main event of WrestleMania 40 to win the WWE Championship and “Finish The Story”.

However, there were also open discussions about Cody winning the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 40, and then challenging the winner of Roman vs. The Rock match to a title unification match at SummerSlam 2024.

As we noted earlier, current plan is for Cody to challenge Seth Rollins for the World Heavyweight Title at WrestleMania XL.

• 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.
