The Rock Drops Huge WrestleMania 41 Tease

The Rock

The Rock is already looking to the future.

At WrestleMania 40, The Rock stepped into the ring for his first proper match in over a decade. On night one of the spectacular, the star teamed with Roman Reigns to defeat Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins, pinning the American Nightmare to earn the win for his team.

Although he was unable to prevent Rhodes winning the Undisputed WWE Championship a day later, on the following episode of Raw, he promised he’d be back to face him.

The Rock is currently back in Hollywood filming The Smashing Machine, although he’s picked up an injury along the way. But that doesn’t mean he hasn’t got one eye on what’s next.

In a new interview with Mike Coppinger of ESPN, Rock reflected on his WrestleMania comeback, revealing he took inspiration from the first Rocky movie.

Leading up into WrestleMania, the training camp, the pressure, the expectation, the deliverable, everything, that quote kept coming back to my mind, which was, ‘I just want to go the distance’ and going the distance meant I knew that we had almost an hour planned, which as you know, is a long f—ing time.

I also had something to prove to myself. … It’s always you vs. you. So that’s something to prove to myself that I can do it and put in the work and put in the training camp and rely on my dance partners in the ring in Cody and Seth and Roman as we all relied on each other. But yeah, I just want to go the distance,”

The star added that despite never working with Seth Rollins or Cody Rhodes previously he felt everything worked out really well. Looking ahead to Las Vegas, he teased “We’re on 1-yard line” for the biggest WrestleMania match ever.

“We’re on the 1-yard line to create the biggest WrestleMania of all time and the biggest match of all time at WrestleMania 41 in Las Vegas. I’ll just leave it at that, Final Boss style,
