The Rock expected negative reaction from possible WrestleMania match

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson hears all of the displeasure with his possible WrestleMania match, including from the “Cody crybabies.”

The Rock joined “The Pat McAfee Show” in Las Vegas on Thursday, just hours ahead of the WrestleMania 40 kickoff press event, where it is expected that a match against Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns will be announced. The Rock opened up by confirming he has been training in the ring for an upcoming match.

McAfee, who just returned to the company as the broadcast announcer of “Monday Night Raw,” asked The Rock if he expected the social reaction that happened when he appeared on “Friday Night Smackdown” this past week, indicating he’d face Reigns at WrestleMania instead of 2024 Royal Rumble winner Cody Rhodes. Rhodes faced Reigns at WrestleMania 39 in 2023 in a losing effort, but fans expected the Royal Rumble win would lead to him “finishing the story” by winning the title he set his eyes on ever since his return to WWE in 2022. This led to disapproval of The Rock stepping in place of Rhodes.
