When WWE announced they were bringing WrestleMania 39 to California, many hoped The Rock would wrestle. WWE had the same mindset as they wanted The Rock against Reigns to close WrestleMania.

Up until a few ago, that seemed like the plan. Then, WWE learned the match likely will not happen according the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

They noted how The Rock needs more to get in shape inside the ring. But, he is keeping the door open for a match down the line.

Without The Rock, it is a major hit for WWE. Still, John Cena is rumored to wrestle and there is talk Steve Austin will do the same.
