WrestleMania 31: Is WWE planning The Rock vs. Triple H?

WWE may be planning on revisiting one of the most storied rivalries in its history, The Rock vs. Triple H, as one of the featured matches at next year's WrestleMania 31, scheduled for Sun., March 29, 2015, at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

The first hint of as much, officially, came during Triple H's weekly interview that was released today. He put Rock over strong before finishing with a tease of a segment we'll see once SmackDown hits the air on Friday night on SyFy:

"Yeah, Rock and I had a brief conversation after Monday Night Raw was over and there were cameras there. It's interesting, to say the least. Rock's a great guy. It's tough to turn off the competitive juices between the two of us."

According to the spoilers for the show, the two went back and forth over who is better between them before ultimately saying each believes they would emerge victorious if they were to wrestle each other in the main event of WrestleMania.

This comes just days after The Rock returned to Raw in Brooklyn to confront Rusev and rumors circulated that WWE feels as though they have their main event for WrestleMania 31.

Interesting timing.

In the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter (subscription required), Dave Meltzer remarks that "WWE isn't going to tease something in that direction if it's not the planned direction." So, at the very least, it appears possible that Rock has agreed to come back for another WrestleMania match and if so, he obviously believes working with Triple H will be as big as his matches with John Cena, seeing as he repeatedly made mention in interviews that he would only return for something as big if not bigger.

It's unlikely WWE will make the same amount of money in California as they did in New Jersey for WrestleMania 29, featuring Rock vs. Cena 2, but The Rock wrestling will obviously be incredibly enticing for potential WWE Network subscribers.

It's not set in stone, of course, because nothing ever is this early on, but it appears a direction may be taking shape.
