Considered one of many rumors floating round is The Rock being concerned in WrestleMania 39, particularly in a program with Roman Reigns. It has been one thing that is regularly mentioned over the previous two years, however that hype is as soon as once more choosing up as we close to Royal Rumble, and if a WrestleMania 39 program have been to occur, it might doubtless begin its construct on the Rumble or near it.
That mentioned, that is a kind of issues the place I will not consider it till it occurs. Do not get me unsuitable, I would like it to, however I am simply not getting overrated for it till The Rock’s music hits and he walks out. If he does although, you’ll be able to guess it is going to be one of many greatest moments of the yr.
In different Rumble information, Reigns already has an opponent for the occasion, as he might be dealing with Owens in a match for the Undisputed WWE Common Championship. The storyline can be constructing on Zayn’s friendship with Owens previously, and there have been teases that Zayn might find yourself siding along with his outdated good friend when issues really matter. We’ll have to attend and see how that performs out, however fortunately we do not have to attend an excessive amount of longer.
Proper now the one individuals who have certified for the Rumble matches are Liv Morgan and Ricochet, after which there would be the match between Reigns and Owens. There are nonetheless a number of weeks earlier than the occasion, so subsequent week’s SmackDown and Uncooked will doubtless begin filling within the card extra.
What do you assume will occur on the Rumble, and can The Rock return? Tell us within the feedback and as at all times you’ll be able to speak all issues wrestling with me on Twitter @MattAguilarCB!
