A lot has happened since the last episode of Friday Night SmackDown aired. In the 02/02 episode, fans saw the return of Dwayne Johnson and it has been revealed that The Rock will be locking horns with Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40 instead of Cody Rhodes. While fans wanted to see the two Samoan giants collide, they were never in favor of it happening at WrestleMania. This has led to an uproar as they believe it was not the right move from WWE considering Rhodes has been achieving new heights lately.

According to a report by PW Insider, WWE might consider changing their The Rock vs Roman Reigns plans for WrestleMania 40 soon. The speculation here is that considering how big the two entities are, both WWE and Johnson could be actively monitoring the trends on social media. Also, since it is weekly live television and there are weeks left for WrestleMania to happen, the company might pivot to the original Cody Rhodes vs Roman Reigns plan for WrestleMania 40 due to the backlash by fans over the internet.

While this is all just speculation, WWE might shift to what fans want in a bid to save themselves from any more negative PR. For those who are unaware, fans have started a petition online called the #WeWantCody.  The hashtag has been used by the fans to show their support for Rhodes and has been trending in the country.

One take at a time
