As per Cinemablend, the speculation surrounding The Rock’s role post-WrestleMania 40 has led to a ton of discussions among wrestling fans. One question that arises is whether Roman Reigns will blame The Rock for his loss at WrestleMania 40, sparking a yearlong feud between the two prominent members of The Bloodline. However, there’s speculation that The Rock could shift his focus to Cody Rhodes, aiming to reclaim the titles for The Bloodline.


Initially, the idea of The Rock winning the Undisputed Universal Title upon his return seemed far-fetched. However, his remarkable heel work as The Final Boss of WWE and exceptional work in recent times has changed views in a major way.

A potential feud with Roman Reigns could also generate significant interest and could headline any WWE pay-per-view, including WrestleMania 41. After all, this match between the two Bloodline members has been one of the most highly anticipated match ups in WWE history and sell out arenas, and many feel it would be fit for WrestleMania 40.

Obviously, The Rock vs Roman Reigns would mean The Tribal Chief loses his titles and ends his record-breaking 1300+ day run as a champion. Therefore, we will have to wait and see what will happen in the end.

The Rock’s prestigious wrestling lineage traces back to his father, the legendary Rocky Johnson, and his maternal grandfather, Peter Maivia, renowned as the Samoan High Chief. Beyond wrestling, Maivia held the esteemed title of High Chief in real life, reflecting his status as the head of their royal Samoan family.

While some speculated that Roman Reigns’ “Tribal Chief” persona paid homage to Maivia’s legacy due to their shared Samoan heritage, Paul Heyman recently clarified this notion. Speaking on the ‘Tetragrammaton with Rick Rubin’ podcast, Heyman revealed that the concept of “The Tribal Chief” was an original creation. Reigns symbolizes not just the leader of the Samoan Islands but the entire WWE Universe, embodying authority over all.

Heyman emphasized that Reigns’ role extended beyond his roots, portraying him as the leader of the WWE Universe rather than solely the Samoan Islands. While acknowledging Maivia’s influence, Heyman clarified that Reigns’ character represents leadership and authority on a broader scale within the WWE Universe.
