The Rock And Ronda Rousey Reportedly Part Of Huge WrestleMania 39 Plans

The Rock & Ronda Rousey

A new report has claimed that both The Rock and Ronda Rousey are set for huge match-ups at WrestleMania 39.

While WrestleMania 38 is still a couple of months away, plans are reportedly being made for the 2023 instalment of the extravaganza.

According to a new report from Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter WrestleMania 39 will see The Rock return to the ring. Not only that he will do so for a long-awaited showdown with Roman Reigns. Furthermore, Ronda Rousey will also be in action in a big money match against long-time rival Becky Lynch.

“The idea is to lead to the biggest WrestleMania ever in 2023 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA, with Reigns vs. The Rock and Becky Lynch vs. Rousey. Of course a million things may happen between then and now and with Dwayne Johnson’s schedule, it may not be possible.”

“And given things change constantly in WWE, a million things could happen regarding Rousey or Lynch over the next year plus. But Rousey’s current deal with WWE at press time was to be a regular on the Smackdown brand, be a regular part of WWE through at least the 2023 WrestleMania if not longer.”

On the most recent episode of SmackDown, Ronda Rousey announced that she will be taking on Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania 38. Rousey earned her shot at a World Champion of her choice after claiming a shock win at the Royal Rumble just four months after giving birth to her daughter.

Meanwhile, The Rock hasn’t wrestled a match of note since being defeated by John Cena at WrestleMania 29. Although he did make a very brief return to the ring at WrestleMania 32 where he pinned Eric Rowan in a six-second long impromptu match.

The Rock and Ronda Rousey have a history with WrestleMania, dating back to the last time the event was held in California. At WrestleMania 31, an enraged Stephanie McMahon sent The Rock on his way before he brought Rousey – who was sitting ringside as a fan – into the ring to deal with McMahon and Triple H.
