This past Friday night, 2024 Men’s WWE Royal Rumble winner Cody Rhodes surprised fans when he announced The Rock would take on Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns at WWE WrestleMania 40. It was a shocking revelation as all signs had pointed to Rhodes finishing his story with Reigns and finally capturing the gold around The Tribal Chief’s waist. Those plans appear to have been thrown into disarray when CM Punk was injured in the WWE Royal Rumble match, and the WWE World Heavyweight Championship picture was thrown into flux.
In a post on social media, The Rock has finally addressed the controversial WWE SmackDown segment that led to him stepping into the shoes of Rhodes, especially so close to the big event.
There’s a word for this explosive, insane reaction – undeniable. No matter the era, the decade, or the city, the energy and connection between the People’s Champ and the People can never be broken and is truly an electrifying experience that creates chills every single time. Thank you Birmingham, Alabama, we made magical history in the “magic city”. Thank you WWE and thank you Cody for the love and the house (dream & soulman). Roman, there’s only one head of the table. I’ll see you in Vegas…Uso.
The Rock and Reigns will face off this Thursday night at a free media and fan event at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. I will be in attendance for the event on behalf of Haus of Wrestling and will be making all my exclusive interviews with talent available to ClubHaus Members first before releasing them to the general public.
