According to Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com, Rollins will find out his Mania opponent at the Elimination Chamber.
Meltzer wrote, “The belief is that Rollins will defend against the winner of the men’s Chamber match on that same show, but such a match has not been announced. And it couldn’t be announced since the tease was [Cody] Rhodes vs. Rollins and announcing the match doesn’t make sense until this coming week.”
The WWE Wrestlemania 40 Kickoff press conference took place on Thursday evening at the T-Mobile arena in Las Vegas, NV.

However, no match was confirmed for Rollins as Cody Rhodes, who was initially expected to challenge him for the World Heavyweight Title, decided to pursue a different path. Instead, Rhodes will be challenging Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Title.
According to Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com, Rollins will have to wait until the Elimination Chamber event to find out who his Wrestlemania opponent will be. It is believed that Rollins will defend his title against the winner of the men’s Chamber match on that same show. However, this match has not been officially announced yet. Meltzer explained that the tease of a match between Rhodes and Rollins was made, but it wouldn’t make sense to announce it until the following week.
