Well, it looks like the Rock has taken his ball and went home.

According to F4W Online (h/t WrestlingInc.com), there is major panic backstage concerning an angle that was scheduled to start at Raw, leading to WrestleMania XXX—The Rock and Brock Lesnar.

However, it will not start tonight.

Word is that The Rock decided to go home following his match against John Cena at WrestleMania, leaving the writers awry without an alternative. As of this article, revisions are taking place, scrambling to provide a suitable second option.

Seemingly, The Rock was—or at least, should have been—aware of an angle of this magnitude. The feud between Rock and Lesnar for WrestleMania XXX is not a new concept, as it has been talked about for a considerable amount of time now.

Since The Rock is out, one may consider a couple of other options for Lesnar to feud with until the situation is cleared up.



Sheamus' involvement with The Shield is getting quite stale, and he has now become the new Ryback in regards to unsuccessfully trying to extinguish the dominance of the trio. Due to his aggressive style of wrestling, coupled with his size, Sheamus would be a good opponent for Lesnar. Even if it is for the purpose of putting Lesnar over until the issue concerning The Rock smooths out.



Ryback would be another good option to feud with Lesnar, especially leaving WrestleMania defying the odds of not being able to Shell Shock Mark Henry. The intensity of this feud would surpass expectations and would automatically put Ryback back in the main event scene. Similar to Sheamus, even if Ryback loses, it would be a good feud to see in throughout the next few months until WWE is ready to start his angle with The Rock.


What do you think of The Rock deciding to go home despite his scheduled angle with Brock Lesnar? Comment, civilly, below.
