On this week’s edition of WWE SmackDown, there will be a backstage segment involving The Rock, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. The segment sees Rock and HHH going back-and-forth over who would win if they wrestled again, including each guy taking shots at the other.
Apparently this was a tease for a potential WrestleMania 31 main event between Rock and Hunter. A match between the two was actually discussed at one point for WrestleMania XXX, but obviously ended up not happening.
During the segment taped for Friday’s SmackDown, The Rock actually brought up the main event of WrestleMania 31 and WWE generally does not tease something that big if it’s not in the plans.
For those wondering, The Rock was not backstage at Tuesday night’s WWE SmackDown TV tapings. The backstage segment featuring The Rock, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon was taped backstage on Monday prior to RAW. The Rock also did not appear before the live crowd at Tuesday night’s WWE SmackDown TV tapings simply because he wasn’t there.
