The Rock challenges Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40
Mega-start Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is set to challenge ‘Tribal Chief’ Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40 for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship title.
Many pundits are dubbing The Rock as Roman Reign’s biggest challenge yet in his over three-year reign as the undisputed champion.
The development was announced by non-other than Royal Rumble winner Cody Rhodes, who might be challenging Seth Rollins for WWE World Heavyweight championship at the showcase of immortals.
Rhodes, who is only the fourth wrestler ever to win two Rumbles in a row, appeared at the Friday Night Smackdown this week to announce who he’ll be challenging for WrestleMania.
The winner of the Royal Rumble is given the honour of choosing his opponent in the Wrestlemania match.
It was highly anticipated that Rhodes would choose Reigns to finish his story, however, he came up with a surprising call.
Rhodes said he decided against fighting Reign in this wrestling mania, after discussing it with several people. “While I still plan on finishing the story, it won’t happen at WrestleMania. And that’s because another man is going to be there,” he added.
As he announced, The Rock walked out, shook hands with Rhodes, and turned to face Reigns standing across.
The Rock’s return was well received by the fans, who are over the moon to see the dream match at WrestleMania 40.
