The Rock is undoubtedly one of the biggest stars in the history of professional wrestling, whose contributions to the business can never be understated. The Great One can bring a huge amount of star power to almost anything he is a part of. The Rock is likely to make his WWE return for a program at WrestleMania 39. However, due to Vince McMahon’s sudden return, fans wondered whether that will affect The Rock’s plans in any way. It seems that will not be the case whatsoever.

Vince McMahon shocked the pro wrestling world as he returned to WWE last week and continuously gave fans panic attacks due to the possibility of him taking over WWE Creative again.

In the meantime, The Rock is planned to square off against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39. This match has been in the making for a long time and fans couldn’t be more excited.

While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about Vince McMahon’s return to WWE and whether it would have any effect on The Rock’s plans for WrestleMania 39. Meltzer made it clear that McMahon’s return will not have any effect whatsoever.


“The basic thing is that Dwayne Johnson is going to do what he has the time to do. If he has time, the Vince stuff is going to have no impact whatsoever. He’s going to do it if he feels he can do it well and he has time to train for it. Which he may not because of the XFL.

The Vince thing will have no impact. A sale to Saudi Arabia is a different story but that’s not gonna happen before WrestleMania anyway most likely. Vince coming back, is it going to affect John Cena? Is it going to affect The Rock? No, they’re going to do whatever they were going to do before.

They expect John Cena at WrestleMania, and as far as The Rock goes, it just depends on his schedule. I would say we’re within two weeks of a yes or no on that one, because they’ve got to have their answer by Royal Rumble because they’ve got to know what to do at the Rumble.

I don’t know what his answer is. I look at the schedule, he’s got to promote this XFL, I don’t know that him doing WrestleMania promotes the XFL.

But if he’s got time to get in shape for the match and train for the match, he’ll do it, and if he doesn’t, I don’t believe he’ll go there to be out of condition and have a bad match.”

There is also the belief that The Rock’s absence from WrestleMania 39 would not be a loss for WWE. That being said, WWE still has huge plans for The Great One at the Show of Shows and that’s all that matters right now.
