The Rock not competing at Wrestlemania
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has more or less confirmed that he won’t be wrestling at WWE WrestleMania 39 in April, but that does not mean he won’t be present at the mega event. This news comes from Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, who said that the former WWE Champion “may show up” at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, for a non-wrestling role.
It’s probably for the best he didn’t come back this year. There’s already a lot going on with The Bloodline not to mention Cody Rhodes and adding The Rock to the mix right now would complicate things. Save it for WM40 https://t.co/8UrEeGqF0V

It had been speculated in all quarters for months that The Rock would face his real-life cousin, Roman Reigns, in the main event of WrestleMania 39 as it is taking place close to Hollywood, where the former Rock has become a household name all over the world over the past decade. However, nothing was ever confirmed, and with the megastar revealing he was not in any shape to take to the ring, it looks like the opportunity has passed this year.
Meltzer (h/t Subhojeet Mukherjee of Ringside News) did give fans some hope by stating that The Rock might still do an angle at WrestleMania 39 that involves an impromptu “three-second match” where he doesn’t have to do much. A clash with Reigns remains a highly sought-after dream match today, and fans can only hope it comes to fruition before The People’s Champ decides to hang up his boots for good.
