The road to WrestleMania has gone through some major twists and turns in recent weeks as The Rock returned which led to a lot of speculation regarding who would be facing Roman Reigns on the Grandest Stage of Them All.

It was announced during the WrestleMania 40 press conference that Cody Rhodes will be challenging Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship in the main event. The Rock has since aligned himself with Roman Reigns and he officially joined The Bloodline last week on SmackDown.

It’s been reported that CM Punk was originally set to challenge Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 40, but unfortunately for CM Punk he suffered an injury during the Royal Rumble match. Punk is currently sitting on the sidelines and he recently shared his thoughts on The Rock’s return during an interview with TNT Sports.

“I think it’s fantastic. 10 years ago I was the guy that was wrestling The Rock when he came back and now 10 years later he’s coming back and I think the landscape has completely changed. WrestleMania is two nights now, it’s even bigger. Him coming back only helps. I always say high tide raises all ships. I’m just happy that even though I’m hurt, I’m still going to kind of be in the mix. My mouth still works, so I’m going to still be able to talk some trash.

I don’t know if you saw the kickoff we did in Vegas with Rock and Roman and Seth and Cody, it was a lot of fun and I hope to just continue to do that while I’m recuperating because I can always just talk trash with the best of them.”
