Rock did not compete for this WWE Since 2016, when he scored a six-second victory over Erick Rowan at WrestleMania 32.
It has been rumored for some time that The Great One will return this year to face his cousin and the undisputed WWE Universal Champion. Roman Empire.
Reigns vs. The Rock is definitely a match worthy of headlining WrestleMania, but it’s unlikely to happen this year.
Dave Meltzer reports that The Rock told WWE that he doesn’t believe he has enough time to get in enough shape for WrestleMania.
Unless The Rock changes his mind in the next few days, a match between him and Reigns won’t happen this year.
The report added that he is open to doing something with WWE in the future even if a match doesn’t happen this year.
It is added that the Rock’s involvement with the coming weekend Royal Rumble “Considered less likely than a few months ago.”
Meltzer also suggests the possibility that “something” is being kept from everyone backstage.
The Rock may not be competing at this year’s WrestleMania, but WWE still has a plan without the People’s Champion.
In the Observer, Meltzer wrote that WWE “always had a backup direction” and always knew The Rock was never a guarantee.
Arguable favorites to win the Men’s Rumble match without The Rock Cody RhodesK’s return was announced during RAW.
