The Rock Interested In WrestleMania 35 Match, WWE Considering Young Talent, Dream Match Opponents

Published

on

Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson is interested in a match at WrestleMania 35 and according to the Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer, if there is no scheduling conflict, the Rock will be there in some form or fashion.

Per sources, WWE is eyeing a match involving the Rock, and barring any insurance policy hiccups, they may be able to line up Rock for a big showdown.

While all of this is merely chatter at this time, a number of names have reportedly been kicked around as opponents for the Rock, names such as Triple H have been brought up.

Depending on his contract situation, the big match that WWE would like to book would be Rock vs. Brock Lesnar, and it remains the “top priority” match among the list of possibilities.

A Lesnar/Rock feud would be the biggest draw and likely garner the biggest attention worldwide, but is all depends on Rock’s status and Lesnar’s contract, who may be committed to UFC by that time.

WWE is also penciling in Shawn Michaels for one last match at WrestleMania 35 as they consider the chances of him committing to a match, the greatest since his retirement, and know the fan interest in a Michaels/Rock showdown as it would be a true dream match.

A Michaels/Rock match is a longshot as WWE would prefer to put Michaels with either A.J Styles, Daniel Bryan, or a younger superstar.

WWE could also consider younger superstars with names such as Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, and Elias being mentioned.

At this juncture, all of this is simply discussed as “what ifs” and a lot can change, but this initial brainstorm is sure to make you excited for what could be in store for WrestleMania 35.

Ospreay also mentioned some of the WWE names he would be interested in facing if he were to find himself in WWE.

“I’ve been approached by them, so I have a lot to think about” he said, according to Tokyo Sports. “I’ve mentioned Seth Rollins‘ name many times… Also, considering my history, it would be a dream to fight Ricochet again. I think that because I think we have become completely different wrestlers than when we fought in the past.”

Ospreay has competed for AEW, Progress Wrestling, Rev Pro, and Ring of Honor throughout his career, among others.

Colt Cabana

Colt Cabana reportedly feared for his job at AEW after the company brought in CM Punk back in August 2021. Punk and Cabana had a nasty falling out, and Cabana saw his appearances on TV for AEW dwindle, something that many speculated was Punk’s doing.

During his Keeping it 100 podcast, Konnan recalled a meeting with Cabana during an AEW event where they discussed Punk.

“When I saw Colt Cabana backstage, I remember asking him, ‘So what’s up with you now that Punk is back?’ He was like, ‘Yeah, man” Konnan said (h/t WrestlingNews). “We’re not really talking.’ I go, ‘Come on, dude. After all these years, you guys were boys’ He said, ‘Yeah, man. He just won’t talk to me.’ He would kind of look around, like, he knew [he was going to be fired.]”

Since then, Punk has been suspended by AEW with his firing (or contract buyout) expected in the future, while Cabana has recently returned to AEW television.

“His mind for how everything needs to work and transition-wise. He’s just good. He knows what he’s doing. It’s one of those things were you thought, ‘I’m the superior wrestler in the ring,’ but once you get in there with John Cena, you realize, ‘Well, okay, I didn’t know that. Let’s keep going.’
