Cody Rhodes passes WrestleMania baton to Hollywood & Wrestling Icon ‘The Rock’

Contrary to what seems to be happening, Cody Rhodes will not be facing Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40. Instead, Reigns’ cousin Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson takes center stage in what promises to be an enormous fight. Fans were anticipating the heated encounter that followed the surprise news.

The Tribal Chief’s Response

While everyone in the WWE world was anticipating the news of Cody Rhodes’ opponent for WrestleMania, Roman Reigns, aka “The Tribal Chief,” was the main attraction on “WWE SmackDown.” In response to previous remarks made by World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins, Reigns disputed Rollins’ assertions, reiterating his superiority and downplaying the necessity for him to plead for sympathy. Rhodes was about to make his entrance, laying the groundwork for a possible confrontation at WrestleMania.

Tensions between Cody Rhodes and Roman Reigns increased as Rhodes eventually made his way into the arena. When Rhodes first made his WrestleMania opponent choice known, he was fervently defending the importance of the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. But in an unexpected change of events, Rhodes disclosed a twist, saying he had spoken to a person Reigns knew personally, opening the door for a shocking disclosure.

The Rock’s Return

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson made a stunning entrance that shocked everyone in the WWE and made it official that he will be participating in the WrestleMania narrative. Though nonverbal, the interaction between Rhodes, Reigns, and The Rock was rather expressive. In addition to changing the direction of the WrestleMania story, The Rock’s entrance suggested that a long-standing family rivalry would take center stage, surpassing titles and introducing a new level of nuance.

The excitement for WrestleMania 40 grew as “WWE SmackDown” ended with the mysterious stare-down between The Rock and The Tribal Chief. Rhodes’ shocking declaration turned the focus to a family drama, paving the way for The Rock and Reigns to square off in a titanic battle. Fans are excited for the WrestleMania 40 press conference, which promises more disclosures and the development of a family narrative that might alter WWE history, because of the two legendary individuals’ silent declarations, which said volumes.
