WWE fans are curious to know who Roman Reigns will face at WrestleMania 39. The biggest name is The Rock, whose return to the company was expected for some time. However, the return of the Hollywood star may be sooner than expected.
Speculations are rife that The Great One could return to WWE at the Royal Rumble, which is two months before WrestleMania. He could win a 30-man match to earn the right to challenge his real-life cousin, Reigns.
Talking about possible scenarios for the Rumble on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said that “there’s always a chance” that The Rock could return to the ring in January 2023. Here’s what he said:
“There’s a lot of different things going into this Royal Rumble, this Royal Rumble leading up to WrestleMania. Obviously everyone will be hoping for Cody, there’s always a chance for Dwayne, others that could be thrown in there. , said Dave Meltzer. [h/t GivemySport]
Royal Rumble 2023 has broken the live gate record for the event with an estimate of over $5 million. While the 10-time world champion will obviously be a favorite to win, Cody Rhodes is likely to be in the mix if he is ready to return by then. Whatever it is, Roman Reigns will be watching it with great interest.
The Rock vs. Roman Reigns Isn’t The Only Mega-Match Rumored For WWE WrestleMania 39
Roman Rance is set to appear in the main event of The Show of Shows, whether it is against The Rock or against someone else. However, the supporting cast surrounding The Tribal Chief may be the most star-studded in WWE history.
John Cena is rumored to return at WrestleMania 39, which will take place in Los Angeles. There he could face Logan Paul, who recently teased a match between the two.
There have also been reports that WWE has offered another match at WrestleMania 38 following Stone Cold Steve Austin’s in-ring return. The Texas rattlesnake is in great shape, so it’s a possibility.
Other returns notwithstanding, do you think The Rock will face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
