Thanks to the ordeal that is currently surrounding the DC Studios, Dwayne Johnson’s DCU career seems to have been quite short-lived. While there is very little hope of a Black Adam sequel being a thing of the future, the actor did mention he would somehow be incorporated into DC’s multiverse, although, his future as Black Adam seems hazy, to say the least.
Now, after losing out on the role he was looking forward to, aiming for a Black Adam vs. Superman duel, it looks like his WWE role might be in trouble as well. Apparently, the much-awaited match between Roman Reigns and The Rock at Wrestlemania 39 has not been confirmed on the latter’s end.
Dwayne Johnson Might Not Show Up in Wrestlemania 39
It looks like the recent Black Adam debacle has taken a toll on Dwayne Johnson as he was once super excited to see how the anti-hero’s future will pan out in the DCU. A fight against Henry Cavill’s Superman in a future sequel was something that both he and the fans were looking forward to. However, James Gunn and Peter Safran’s new slate completely erased the possibility.
Now, Johnson being a part of Wrestlemania 39 also seems uncertain as Angel Aramboles of WrestlingNews.co stated that Johnson has not been locked in for the gig just yet. Along with the uncertainty, Aramboles also stated that The Rock needs to be finalized before the 2022 Royal Rumble PLE as that will be the time the decisions for the top matches will be finalized.
“WrestlingNews.co has been told that The Rock is still not locked in for WrestleMania and the current plan, if The Rock can’t do the show, is for Cody Rhodes to challenge Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship. WWE wants to get The Rock committed before the Royal Rumble because that is when things will get set in motion for Mania.”
Wrestling Observer Newsletter’s Dave Meltzer stated that a Roman Reigns vs. The Rock match isn’t completely erased from becoming a reality saying that neither is the match locked nor is it off the boards. He added that Johnson needs to make up his mind before the Royal Rumble or the team will have to go with one of their backups. If The Rock fails to commit, Roman Reigns will then face off against Cody Rhodes.
Is Dwayne Johnson’s Net Worth in Danger?
From his sports-entertainment career to becoming one of the highest-paid actors in the world, Johnson has earned a net worth of a whopping $800 million over the years. There is no doubt that he is known around the world for either his WWE days, his career in Hollywood, or both.
However, owing to the Black Adam fiasco and now the ordeal with Wrestlemania 39, there might be a chance that the actor’s fortune could take a serious hit. Fans have been quite excited for a match between him and Roman Reigns where Johnson strives to take the title of the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion for himself. Thus, if The Rock chooses to opt-out of this one, it might not only be a blow to his fortune but also to a large number of fans who have looked forward to this dream match for a long time.
Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam is available to stream on HBO Max.
