At WrestleMania XL Kick-off, The Rock vs Roman Reigns was initially teased stating that the only dominant & royal family of pro-wrestling is bound by blood and will main event the biggest WrestleMania of all time. Cody then interrupted them and said that was a “bull sh*t” and asked them who gave them rights to make decisions as he is the one who won the 2024 Royal Rumble and has the decision making rights.
Cody then announced his decision to challenge Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at the main event of WrestleMania XL. Reigns regretted his challenge stating that he is irrelevant as his dad, which pissed him off. Cody then took shots at their family, which made The Rock angry. The Great One said that Roman’s family, blood and ancestors are the same and slapped him on the face, which raised tensions. Now, Rock addressed the situation and opened up for the very first time.

Your hero f**ked around and he found out quick what happens when you talk about our family with disrespect. Lines crossed and blurred – bring it. We don’t toe the mark for no one. Road to Wrestlemania begins…
