WWE News: The Rock Hints At Biggest Match In WrestleMania History Next Year in Las Vegas

— ESPN ran an article on The Rock’s preparation heading into WrestleMania 40 this year and his mindset going into wrestling for the first time in over a decade, especially after his last match ended with him suffering multiple injuries.

“I felt like that was a representation and a reflection of what I was feeling because as you know, in pro wrestling, there is no take two, you get one night, one shot and one opportunity… Leading up into WrestleMania, the training camp, the pressure, the expectation, the deliverable, everything, that quote kept coming back to my mind, which was, ‘I just want to go the distance’ and going the distance meant I knew that we had almost an hour planned, which as you know, is a long f—ing time.”

“I also had something to prove to myself. … It’s always you vs. you. So that’s something to prove to myself that I can do it and put in the work and put in the training camp and rely on my dance partners in the ring in Cody and Seth and Roman as we all relied on each other. But yeah, I just want to go the distance.”

“The training camp, as intense as it was, as hard as it was, as physical as it was, we still couldn’t go 100%, couldn’t even go 75%. At times I would go 50% and 50%, is better than nothing. However, when you go 100% in that world of pro wrestling, especially when you have 45 minutes of match that requires you to fight inside the ring and then outside the ring and then into the crowd, there’s nothing that could replicate that.”

— In an interesting quote, The Rock then spoke of next year’s WrestleMania 41, hinting that something major is in the works.

“We’re on the 1-yard line to create the biggest WrestleMania of all time and the biggest match of all time at WrestleMania 41 in Las Vegas. I’ll just leave it at that, Final Boss style.”
