In our past weekend edition of The Wrestling Rumor Mill we published a report on possible original plans for Wrestlemania 35. The report from Wrestlevotes stated that at one time there was plans for The Rock to win Royal Rumble and face Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 35.
That obviously could not happen now due to Roman Reigns dealing with leukaemia, but according to Dave Meltzer at The Wrestling Observer, there was never a plan for that to happen.
Dave responded to this report on The Wrestling Observer forums stating he checked on the report, and it is not true at all.
Seems like @davemeltzerWON is refuting my tweet about Rock & the Rumble. That’s fair. But in wrestling, plans change ALL the time. To say a trusted source didn’t give me this information is dumb. As everyone can tell, my sources are usually pretty good. So I believe them. Still.
