It has been speculated that WWE was counting on the Rock and Ronda Rousey as mainstream draws for next year’s WrestleMania. According to several sources, it now appears neither will be available for the show.
Rousey will be filming a movie in Indonesia at that time, plus she would have needed clearance from UFC to wrestle which is easier said then done.
Rock will be filming a movie next year and would have an issue with his insurance coverage if he does any pro wrestling before movie filming starts. He would be deemed an injury risk and that’s not what they movie studios are looking for. He could still be on the show in some form but he can’t be in a match situation. Unless, of course, WWE is able to work something out.
It was reported earlier that WWE has been calling “big names” left and right in order to cope with their recent injury problems, The Rock was certainly high on that particular list, some felt he could even appear as early as Royal Rumble, but it now seems WWE will have to look elsewhere.
