WWE to pit The Rock against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39

The hype for the potential return of the most electrifying man in sports entertainment to the WWE continues.


If we believe the Wrestling Observer's Dave Meltzer, The Rock is "100 percent" sure to be a lock for WrestleMania 39.

The Rock and Roman Reigns worked together on Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, which premiered in 2019.

Here's what Meltzer had to say in a recent podcast:

It's the plan. It's 100 percent the plan for this year. But the idea is, it's the plan if we can do it. We're still months away, months and months away. So many opportunities and things like that may come up that are far more important than WrestleMania.

Roman Reigns might be caught up in an ongoing feud with Logan Paul, which could end at Crown Jewel on November 5. But, for as long as Reigns has reigned atop the WWE, he's had to deal with talks of a potential matchup with his cousin, The Great One.

Both have also played to the rumors over the years despite the fact that The Rock technically hasn't tussled with anyone inside the ring since losing to John Cena at WrestleMania 29 in 2013 or, if we're being technical, the six-second surprise matchup between him and Erick Rowan at WrestleMania 32 in 2016.

The Rock has a packed schedule so it'll be difficult to squeeze in time for a more involved role in the WWE.

Of course, this could finally happen with Triple H finally at the helm. The WWE Hall of Famer should be more than eager to put his stamp on his time as the Head of Creative and the return of The Rock would surely do it.

As much as Triple H would love to hype The Rock for WrestleMania 39, the supposed owner of Hollywood has his hands full at the moment.

The Rock is set to make his DCEU debut as Black Adam on October 21 and he's busy doing rounds for the film, spoiling its events in the process. In addition to this, The Rock is starring in sequels to Red Notice (well, two of them), Jumanji, and Jungle Cruise.

Also, if Black Adam is as successful as early previews suggest, The Rock could be in for repeat performances as Black Adam as soon as the next season of Peacemaker starts filming. Not to mention, The Rock could easily decide to say no to wrestling at WrestleMania 39 if he thinks that his 50-year-old smoldering boulder of a body can't take more in-ring wear.

The Rock's availability for the WWE could hinge on the box office numbers of Black Adam.

Ultimately, all signs point to a The Rock vs Roman Reigns matchup happening - we're just hoping that it's sooner rather than later.
