5 rumored WWE feuds that never happened
WWE has been dominating the professional wrestling industry since the days of the Attitude Era - and even earlier. Though the ratings of the company aren't very good as of late, Vince McMahon’s wrestling empire still has a plethora of die-hard fans worldwide.
We can broadly classify the WWE Universe into two types - one is the bunch of casual fans, who turn up for shows like WrestleMania, Royal Rumble, SummerSlam and matches involving legendary superstars. Whereas, the second group of fans love to learn about wrestling rumors online and have the foresight of what will happen next in WWE.
These fans are always excited to see the rumored storylines take place on WWE TV. However, not always have the reported rumors come to fruition. Given the unpredictable nature of WWE’s business, last-minute changes are inevitable and very frequent.
In this article, we will have a look at the 5 WWE feuds that were heavily rumored to take place but did not happen -
5 The Rock vs Roman Reigns
Cousins in real life, Roman Reigns and The Rock have been rumored to battle against each other at the Grandest Stage of ‘em All not once, but twice. This rumor first emerged in the year 2017, when the rumor mill reported that WWE wanted Roman Reigns vs The Rock at WrestleMania 33. But, the same plans did not transpire because of the Brahma Bull’s tight schedule and injury issues.
Two years later, when Roman Reigns won the Universal Championship, the rumor mill was abuzz once again with rumblings that the Rock would return and win the 2019 Royal Rumble match to set up an epic clash at WrestleMania 35. However, WWE had to alter the plans because of Roman Reigns’ shocking Leukemia revelation.
