WWE delivered the goods on its tease of a “former WWE champion” returning on the “Day 1” special episode of Monday Night Raw this week when The Rock interrupted Jinder Mahal to do his usual thing. Mahal was a punching bag, both verbally and physically, and he was there to help “The Great One” get all his stuff in.
It was fun for what it was.
But the much bigger story came after they finished up with all that and The Rock dropped this:
That would indeed be Rock openly teasing going after Reigns, something WWE has reportedly flirted with multiple times in the past. The timing of it is most interesting, considering we’re just weeks away from Royal Rumble and WrestleMania 40 is just a few months away.
Tis the season, folks.
WWE went extra hard on pushing the tease of it in the immediate aftermath of the promo, enough so that it seems downright obvious they’re actually going to put it together.
