The Rock and Roman Reigns set to team up before WrestleMania 40 night one but not inside a ring

WrestleMania 40 is set to turn out to be an unforgettable clash! The main match of Night 1 pits Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins against The Rock and Roman Reigns. But before the main show throws down in Philadelphia, there’s a special team-up in the works that won’t happen in the ring.

With The Rock and Roman Reigns from The Bloodline scheduled to appear on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” excitement for WWE’s WrestleMania event is escalating very rapidly.

The Rock and Roman Reigns to appear in The Tonight Show

The outcome of their tag team match at WrestleMania Night 1 is very important because if Rock and Reigns win, the Reigns-Rhodes match at WrestleMania 40 on Night 2 will follow Bloodline Rules, which could allow outsider interference. Another option is for Cody and Seth to win. If they do, The Rock says that Bloodline members will not be allowed to interfere in the match.

So, the Bloodline combo is doing more media appearances to increase hype for their WrestleMania 40 battle as the spectacle approaches. Just days before their tag team fight against Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins, Brahma Bull and the Big Dog are scheduled to make an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” on April 3. The announcement was made in a lighthearted spoof on Twitter in which Jimmy and his team throw the WWE Golden Title around.

A regular guest on “The Tonight Show,” The Rock talked about his return to WWE in November. Now after a long drama, he sets the stage for his current participation in Reigns’ fight with Rhodes. On the contrary, The American Nightmare plans to seize the ring from the Tribal Chief and “Finish his story,” at WrestleMania 40

Shortly after his fight with Cody Rhodes last month, The People’s champion suddenly turned heel and became close with Roman Reigns, almost like a loyal big brother. Not everybody has observed this change but wrestling veteran Nic Nemeth feels the same way.

Former WWE star believes Roman Reigns looks like the Rock’s “little brother”

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s recent behavior has generated a lot of buzz in the middle of WWE’s intense feud, since the beginning of his confrontation with Cody Rhodes, particularly after “WWE Raw.”  Fans and insiders are talking a lot about how The Rock stealing the spotlight from Roman Reigns who should be the focal point of the feud.

In the same vein, ex-WWE star Nic Nemeth thinks that Reigns’ importance is being overshadowed by The Rock’s dominating presence in the buildup to WrestleMania 40. He thinks Roman needs to step up and remind everyone why he’s the champion. 

Speaking on Busted Open Radio, Nic shared his thoughts on The Rock’s overpowering by stating, “It does make Roman look like a little brother — a little bit… We had a year and nine months before The Rock of this two-year story, so I get it.”

Does Dwayne Johnson’s presence put Roman Reigns on the back burner a bit? Share your opinion in the comments.

Oh, hi, this is Md Robin Ahmed, a WWE fan and I everyday go through a slew of popular WWE stories on Sportszion. Watching Big Show's Showstopper was the beginning of my passion for WWE, though I have to say that his Chokeslam is not one of my favorite moves. Over time, my love for professional wrestling has intensified, mostly due to the Shield, and my all-time favorite wrestler in WWE is Big Dog. I would give everything to be able to be within a few feet of him to witness his iconic Superman Punch and Spear. My major is engineering, but I'm most happy when I'm doing something artistic that doesn't put me under any pressure. Watching them wrestle and discuss their matches is always fun for me. And I've finally discovered a career that gives me fun since it allows me to with my dream heroes lifestyle. So, Welcome! I'd love to hear from you on LinkedIn and Facebook.
