WrestleMania 39 took place in Hollywood, Los Angeles. With The Bloodline story reaching its peak, the WWE Universe was expecting Dwayne Johnson to dethrone Roman Reigns in the city that he rules.

In a recent interview, he told the fans that The Rock vs. Reigns was locked for WrestleMania 39. But due to some creative differences, it couldn’t take place. However, WWE legend Jeff Jarrett believes otherwise. He thinks there’s more to this matter than meets the eye.

Speaking on My World podcast, Jarrett said that he doesn’t buy that uninspiring creative was the only reason for Johnson not healing WrestleMania this year. Johnson is an actor, pro wrestler, and whatnot, but most importantly, he is a businessman. Businessmen know where and where to invest time and energy.

He said, “I’m not sure I’m buying that Rock was uninspired going into SoFi this year. We all know what happened the day after [Endeavor bought WWE]. Well, I just think there was a lot going on behind the scenes. Vince coming back, the sale, the merger, the executive situation.”

In addition, WWE is under Endeavor now and Johnson has a business relationship with UFC’s parent company. This might play an enormous factor in making the Reigns vs. Rock match possible. What do you have to say about Jeff Jarrett’s statement? Do you agree with him?
