Where Is The Rock Today?, Coach On Why Rousey Is Under Pressure, Heyman Intends To Leave With The Universal Champion

With rumors running rampant about WrestleMania 34 and potential surprise appearances, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson may have ruled himself out with his latest Instagram post.

Previous reports did state that The Rock was expected at WrestleMania, to perform a segment with Elias, though they were later ruled out. Both his mother and daughter have been seen in New Orleans but The Rock has posted an Instagram photo where he claims to be on a Rampage press tour in Shanghai.

Of course, it is common practice for surprise appearances to be kept, exactly that, and this post could be done to throw fans off the scent, but if you take it at face value it would rule any Rock appearance out.

Pre-workout lion blood is kickin in 🦁 Combating 15+hrs of jet lag fatigue by hittin’ it hard. I have a big work schedule ahead of me today so I gotta anchor and balance my day with the iron. Next time you travel abroad – land, eat, shower, fight thru fatigue and hit the gym. It’ll clear your mind and settle your body chemistry into that new time zone. Or you can say f*ck it, order room service and go to bed.. which is always a solid alternative lol. #HardestWorkerInTheRoom #NonNegotiable #SHANGHAI #WorldTour #RAMPAGE

The Coach On Rousey Being Under Pressure

Jonathan Coachman, who will be commentating during the Raw matches tonight at WrestleMania was interviewed by TMZ recently where he spoke about Ronda Rousey being under a different kind of pressure from UFC tonight. Below is a highlight of that interview with a h/t to Rajah.com for the transcription.

“Yeah, she’s been in main events before in the UFC, but this is on another level,” said The Coach. “We’re talking millions upon millions of viewers. Here’s the thing that people don’t think about, just the pressure to perform in front of her new peers. Because she’s come in and taken a very lucrative spot at WrestleMania. Now, I don’t really give a damn whether she’s earned it or not. Her star power has earned it, but now she has to go out there and perform, that’s the beauty of WrestleMania and coming in where she has come in at. So, I think there’s a lot of people anxious to see exactly how a match with Ronda Rousey is going to look.”

Paul Heyman Vows To Leave With The Universal Champion

Paul Heyman posted an interesting Tweet today, giving Roman Reigns credit for main eventing four WrestleMania’s in a row, before advising fans he is leaving the show with the Universal Champion.

The wording of this is particularly interesting as Heyman doesn’t state Brock Lesnar, but rather just ‘the Universal Champion.’ There have been rumors that Reigns could become a Paul Heyman Guy tonight, and this is likely going to add fuel to that fire.

. @WWERomanReigns has been the main event on FOUR consecutive @WrestleMania s. Not even @BrockLesnar can say that. Roman has earned that position every single day, and deserves mad props for that. Please be advised, though. I'm leaving #WM34 with the #UniversalChampion. pic.twitter.com/UlMVcXcZ04
