The Rock‘s return changed the whole landscape of WWE. His involvement in The Bloodline and Cody Rhodes‘ rivalry broke all the records in terms of ratings. ‘The Brahma Bull’ had his first match in eight years against the duo of Rhodes and Seth Rollins, and eventually won. As of now, there are no plans for him to return to the ring for a match. 


According to the latest edition of WON, The Rock‘s next match has been talked about at next year’s WrestleMania. There is also a slight possibility of him having a match later this year. ‘Flex Kavana’ originally wanted to have a match with his cousin, Roman Reigns, but he would prefer to work with Cody Rhodes at next year’s WrestleMania.

When the 51-year-old returned and replaced Rhodes to fight Reigns at WrestleMania XL, fans let their voices be heard. ‘The American Nightmare’ then again challenged ‘The Tribal Chief’ at the WrestleMania XL kickoff. The Rock turned heel and joined The Bloodline, delivering some of the most entertaining and most watched segments in history. 

The 38-year-old received help from legends like The Undertaker and John Cena, who came out to assist him against The Bloodline. It will be interesting to see who Rhodes defends his title against first, with many talented and deserving superstars clamoring for a shot. More importantly, he will look forward to continuing his journey and writing another story after completing one last night.

Damian Priest finally made the right use of his MITB contract and cashed in on the newly crowned champion, Drew McIntyre. After winning the championship, he shared a wholesome moment with The Final Boss himself backstage.

The Scottish Warrior finally completed his dream of winning the world title in front of a jam-packed crowd. However, his dream soon turned into a nightmare, as Priest cashed in his MITB contract and dethroned him in just 5 minutes and 46 seconds. It was the first world title win of his career, and The Great One made sure to make that moment memorable. 

Not only The Rock, but many superstars like Bobby Lashley, Cody Rhodes, and CM Punk also congratulated him. The Best in the World even joked about not having the briefcase around anymore. It will be interesting to see how his first-ever world title reign goes.
