• WWE Planning A ‘Monster Match’ For WrestleMania 35
The Rock is no doubt one of the most respectable personalities in the pro wrestling world. Whenever he appears in the ring, he makes sure everyone is talking about him. He has been a fan favourite over the years.
We previously reported that The Rock is interested in working WrestleMania next year. WWE and The Great One are still discussing the terms on his return.
According to Slice Wrestling, early creative plans call for The People’s Champion to have a promo face off with Elias (which could be as soon as this Sunday’s SummerSlam 2018 PPV) and then later on setting up a monster match at WrestleMania 35 with an opponent that is yet to be finalized.

The Rock has made numerous appearances over the years but he hasn’t wrestled a proper match since WrestleMania 29. The Great One beat Erick Rowan in 6 seconds at WrestleMania 32 in an impromptu match.
Who would you like to see face The Rock at WrestleMania 35?
