At some point, The Rock will have one final match. Who will walk into the ring with The Great One?

There will come a time when The Rock will no longer be a part of WWE. While the wrestler turned actor is a once-in-a-while participant at WrestleMania or on a random Monday Night Raw, there is always hope that The Brahma Bull will lace up his boots and try to beat someone’s candy ass.

If The Rock formally announced he had one more match left in his career, there would be a rush of euphoria to make sure the last time we saw him in the ring was memorable.

The recent matches with CM Punk and John Cena proved the man who proclaimed himself as the most electrifying man in sports entertainment could still bring the crowds to their feet and could still deliver a knockout promo. The Rock is still must-see television.

As other wrestlers from the Attitude Era continue to hang up their boots and move on to other chapters in their lives, there will be a time when a formal announcement made of one more match. Fans of my generation will be reminded that the new stars of this business are taking it over in light speed. The 40-something wrestler will soon be obsolete.

In any event, here are five wrestlers who could serve as the opponent for The Rock’s final match.

#1. Bray Wyatt  

Would the Eater of Worlds play mind games with the Brahma Bull

The only time these two have appeared together was at WrestleMania 32 when John Cena came to his rescue. This is a match I would like to see. Wyatt is on the edge of the main event on SmackDown Live. The addition of Randy Orton to the fray makes his stable even stronger. Does WWE work a program where The Rock faces the Family?

This is another case where the promotional spots leading up to the match could be even better than the work inside the ring. How will Wyatt play mind games with the Great One and how will Rock’s usual insults and vignettes affect Wyatt prior to the confrontation? Intriguing right?
