The Rock’s match for WWE Wrestlemania 40 officially confirmed during 3/8/24 edition of Smackdown

In the final segment of WWE Smackdown on March 8th 2024, Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins responded to The Rock and undisputed Universal champion Roman Reigns’ tag team match challenge for night one of Wrestlemania 40.

Rollins accepted the challenge and then the two sides exchanged words. Rock stated that since he is on the TKO board of directors, Cody will never get another Universal title match if he loses to Reigns at night two of Wrestlemania. Rock then brought up Cody’s family and said Cody was a mistake. Cody then slapped Rock and the show went off the air.
