According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE had plans for a match between Rock and Brock at the Show of Shows in 2014. Before, it was scrapped due to injury concerns of Dwayne The Rock Johnson. However, he revealed the original plans of WWE, as Dave said, “The original plan was for him to continue wrestling at WrestleMania with a one-year build for a 2014 match with Brock Lesnar.”

Furthermore, Meltzer stated that movie studios didn’t want Dwayne to suffer any critical injuries, as it could affect the movie schedules. Meltzer said, “He never did another match, as the movie studios didn’t want him to risk injury. So doing WrestleMania would also depend on movie scheduling.”

Brock Lesnar went on to face The Undertaker, which led to the end of the Streak of the Deadman. The match with The Undertaker elevated Brock to another level. On the other hand, The Rock was in the opening segment with Steve Austin and Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania 30.
