WWE WrestleMania 40 has become a hot topic in professional wrestling circles, largely due to The Rock, Roman Reigns, and Cody Rhodes. During the WrestleMania 40 Kick-off show, a significant development occurred as Cody Rhodes reclaimed his championship match at WrestleMania by challenging Roman Reigns.This raised doubts about The Rock's spot at WrestleMania. Nonetheless, 


Here are the  five potential matches for The Rock at WWE WrestleMania 40:

5. The Rock vs Cody Rhodes



Following the altercation where The Rock slapped Cody Rhodes, tensions escalated between them, setting the stage for a potential showdown at WrestleMania 40 Night 1. This matchup could determine the contender who will face Roman Reigns at Night 2 for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship, a scenario that holds considerable significance.

4. The Rock vs Roman Reigns



A Tribal Combat match between The Rock and Roman Reigns, vying for the coveted "Tribal Chief" status at WrestleMania 40 Night 1, presents an intriguing concept. With the Tribal Chief status defended on Night 1 and the Universal Championship contested on Night 2, it offers a seamless arrangement, allowing both The Rock and Cody to pursue their aspirations on subsequent nights.

3. Triple Threat Match for WWE Universal Championship


A triple-threat match with Rhodes may not be the ideal option, as it risks diminishing his spotlight and could lead to Reigns losing his title without being directly pinned, potentially lessening the significance of his historic reign concluding. Moreover, traditional singles bouts have often been more compelling and entertaining than triple-threat matches throughout wrestling history. However, considering the immense star power and the ongoing tensions among all three competitors, a triple-threat match involving Reigns, Rhodes, and The Rock would undoubtedly be captivating to watch.

2. Fatal 4-Way Winner Takes All Match


WWE is reportedly contemplating the merger of the Universal and World Heavyweight Championships by Summer Slam. Seth Rollins' participation in the WrestleMania Kickoff press conference could be a part of this plan. While Rollins' opponent for WrestleMania will be determined in the Elimination Chamber later this month, he could potentially compete on both nights. This could set up a scenario where Rollins and Rhodes each retain their titles on Night One, leading to a Fatal 4-Way involving The Rock on Night Two.

While a Fatal 4-Way is typically reserved for non-WrestleMania events, it could reduce the workload for The Rock, who is 51 years old and hasn't wrestled in a decade. However, such a crowded match may not be the best use of The Rock from a creative standpoint.

1.     A Tag Team Match Against Seth Rollins and Cody Rhodes


WWE's intentions with Seth Rollins' involvement in the ongoing storyline remain unclear. While his WrestleMania 40 opponent will be determined in the Elimination Chamber, it's possible that Rollins has already shifted focus. However, the recent WrestleMania Kickoff press conference hinted at a potential tag team match involving Rollins and Rhodes against The Rock and Reigns. This match, likely to occur on Night One, could set the stage for Reigns versus Rhodes on Night Two. It's a significant match-up with strong storyline foundations, fitting for WrestleMania.

A tag team match would also provide a platform to showcase The Rock while accommodating any potential limitations in his in-ring performance. This approach could benefit all involved and attract viewers for what promises to be an epic WrestleMania event. Perhaps The Rock will step into the ring at WrestleMania as Reigns' ally rather than his adversary.
