On today’s edition of “The Pat McAfee Show,” The Rock confirmed that a match between himself and Roman Reigns was originally scheduled to headline WrestleMania 39.
While The Great One revealed that there were discussions for the match to happen and they had a handshake deal in place, it “wasn’t going to be the end of something, but the beginning.” He added that as the show got closer, a deal couldn’t be worked out. Now, The Rock says he’s open to making the match happen at WrestleMania 40 in Philadelphia, PA.
According to a report from Fightful Select, one WWE higher-up stated that “the door is always open.” It has been confirmed that there were plans considered for the WrestleMania 39 match and they were talked about between both sides in the summer and fall of last year. Additionally, internal documents had listed Reigns’ opponent as “TBA” for a while. As far as the talents on the roster are concerned, the general consensus is “I’ll believe it when I see it.”
Finally, it was added that The Rock’s appearance on today’s edition of “The Pat McAfee Show” took place near the city of Denver, CO, which is where tonight’s WWE SmackDown TV tapings are taking place. One cast member from McAfee’s show stated that both The Rock and Pat McAfee would be attending tonight’s show. This has not been confirmed. And it’s worth noting that even if they are backstage at the show, it doesn’t mean they’ll be appearing live.
