The Rock Has Pitched A Massive Tag Team Match For WrestleMania 40 (Night One)



It was The Rock’s call for his character to turn heel on WWE programming following the backlash to his return to the company.

After it was teased that The Rock would face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40 instead of Cody Rhodes, fans expressed their opposition with the ‘#WeWantCody’ movement.

In the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it was noted that The Rock pitched for his heel turn and has pitched a tag match for WrestleMania 40 (Night One). The report states,

“There is said to be far more behind the scenes that hasn’t come out but given the timing can’t be talked about now. But [Dwayne] Johnson over the weekend said it was best to be out of the Reigns match, put Cody in, which by this point everyone conceded by then. It was Johnson who then pitched the heel turn and he did pitch the idea of the Reigns & Rock vs. Rhodes & Rollins match for night one. So that was his idea if that is how it turns out.”

At the WrestleMania 40 Kickoff press conference, Rhodes declared that he would face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania, disrupting the plans of the Tribal Chief and his cousin.

WWE WrestleMania 40 will start on April 6 from Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, PA, and will host its second show the next night.
