They will meet again. WWE has issued the following press release stating that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Roman Reigns will face off at an open-to-the-public fan and media event – WrestleMania XL Kickoff – live from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas this Thursday, February 8 at 4 p.m. PT.
You can see more of the press release below:
Fans and media will hear from both The Rock and Roman Reigns, as well as WWE Chief Content Officer Paul “Triple H” Levesque. Onsite interview opportunities for media will immediately follow the event with both participants, Cody Rhodes, Seth “Freakin” Rollins, Bianca Belair and Rhea Ripley.
Building on the anticipation for the already-record-breaking WrestleMania XL, Thursday’s event will be hosted by Monday Night Raw commentators Michael Cole and Pat McAfee, and stream live on WWE social and digital channels as well as Peacock.
Between RAW this coming Monday and this press conference on Thursday, I’m sure many questions will be answered going forward. Everyone is freaking out about Cody Rhodes having to be pushed aside for The Rock to battle Roman Reigns, but we don’t know that is going to happen. Either way, this will continue to hype up the Road to WrestleMania and I can’t wait!
