Recently, a rumor began circulating around that WWE was planning a match between The Rock and Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 35. The rumor suggested WWE planned on having The Rock winning the 2019 Royal Rumble match, setting up a Universal Title bout between Rock and Reigns at WrestleMania in New Jersey. The report noted that those plans were nixed once Reigns announced his battle with leukemia.
However, Dave Meltzer recently shut this rumor down on the F4WOnline Message Board. Meltzer was asked about the rumor and said he initially believed it sounded unbelievable, and confirmed as much with a source:
“This didn’t sound believable, but I checked. Not true at all.”
It’s unknown when or even if The Rock will decide to return to the squared circle. He hasn’t wrestled a legitimate match since WrestleMania 29 in New Jersey back in 2013. The Rock dropped the WWE Championship to John Cena in the main event.
