WWE star supports The Rock to ‘finish’ his story at WrestleMania 40 amid Cody Rhodes controversy

At the press event in Las Vegas on February 8th, featuring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, the anticipation for WrestleMania 40 builds up two months before the event. Last week, the Rock surprised SmackDown viewers by suggesting he might step in for Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania for the Universal Championship.

The excitement is intense for the People’s Champion’s press presentation in Las Vegas. Meanwhile, Grayson Waller, the 33-year-old WWE star, has sent a message to The Brahma Bull about potentially substituting for The American Nightmare at WrestleMania 40.

Grayson Waller backs The Rock for WrestleMania 40 main event

Fans have been outraged ever since The Rock made an appearance on SmackDown Live and addressed Cody Rhodes, who turned down the opportunity to meet Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40. This development has been going on since Friday.

Controversy erupted when The Rock personally confronted Reigns. Although WWE has not officially finalized the main event, the press event that will take place tomorrow in Las Vegas for WrestleMania 40 will include Reigns, Rhodes, and The Rock, all of whom landed in Vegas today.

In reaction to The Rock’s arrival in Las Vegas, Grayson Waller took to social media to express his support for The Great One, reversing the sentiments of those who were initially in favor of Rhodes. A warm greeting was extended to The Rock, and Waller voiced his hope that the People’s Champion would be able to conclude his story at WrestleMania 40.

As expected, Triple H, Roman Reigns, Cody Rhodes, Rhea Ripley, Seth Rollins, Bianca Belair, and The Rock will all be in attendance at the WrestleMania 40 Press Event. Since his dramatic encounter with Roman Reigns on Smackdown on February 2nd, this will be the Brahma Bull’s first appearance in front of a WWE audience.

No official confirmation has been made about the possibility that he may fight Reigns at WrestleMania 40. Still, hashtags like #WeWantCody emerged on social media as a result of fans’ dissatisfaction with the Smackdown climax.

While Seth Rollins and Cody Rhodes spoke about their possible WrestleMania encounter, fans screamed “Rocky Sucks” and “We Want Cody” on Monday Night Raw. Nothing changed despite Drew McIntyre’s best efforts to step in.

To build anticipation for what promises to be a monumental WrestleMania 40 opening press conference, WWE released a video of The Rock’s arrival at Las Vegas airport. The Rock called himself a “long gamer,” a phrase he has used before in reference to a conflict with Roman Reigns.

Peacock will broadcast the news conference live at 7 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Thursday, February 8, 2024. In tomorrow’s press conference, we can only hope that all of the questions and concerns about the WrestleMania 40 main event will be answered. Put your thoughts down in the comment box.

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.
