• The Rock Has Reportedly Given Bad News To WWE Officials
WWE wants to do Roman Reigns vs. The Rock in the main event of WrestleMania 39 – Night 2.
Some fans are hoping for The Rock to show up at RAW XXX during The Bloodline acknowledgment segment, while some are hoping for him to be a surprise entrance in the Men’s Royal Rumble 2023 match and win it.
However, none of this might be happening.
According to the Wrestling Observer, The Rock doesn’t feel like he has enough time to get in the shape that he wants to be in for an in-ring return right now:
“We were told that unless he changes his mind in the next few days, since a deadline for Mania plans is coming, that he’s indicated he won’t have time to get into the kind of shape he feels he needs to be in to do a main event match with Roman Reigns, but kept the door open for something in the future. Of course it is a possibility that it’s something being kept a secret from everyone.
WWE has always had a backup direction this year given they were aware Johnson was not a sure thing for some time, and as time went on and he didn’t agree, felt the likelihood had lessened. I don’t know that he’s officially turned it down, but the only indication is that it was considered less likely than a few months ago.
Johnson right now has different projects going on, most importantly the launching of the XFL which debuts the weekend of 2/18 and he will be very heavily involved with the promotion of the league.
He had said he would need to have training time to be able to get in ring shape. So his decision comes down to his belief of having adequate time to prepare.”
