The Wrestlemania 40 situation has been amped up in the presence of The Rock over the past several months. The WWE Legend returned to the WWE to challenge his cousin Roman Reigns in a dream matchup of all time. But then Cody Rhodes won the 2024 WWE Royal Rumble to confirm the headliner spot at Show of Shows and he will be challenging Roman Reigns in a rematch from last year.

The Rock then went on to align himself with The Bloodline to gang up against Cody Rhodes while Seth Rollins also joined the scene putting his differences aside with Rhodes to join forces with him so that the heel faction could be handled well en route to Wrestlemania 40.

Rollins stood by his side and added that he would back him up if needed against The Bloodline. Going by the circumstances, it seems like a tag team match could be in the pipeline for Wrestlemania 40.
