Now that Ronda Rousey has finally been added to the WWE roster, the focus turns towards her first match - which is set to take place at WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans on Apr. 8.
According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the original plans call for Rousey to partner up with The Rock - where they'll face Raw commissioner Stephanie McMahon and her husband, Triple H in a mixed tag-team match.
But though The Rock appears at WrestleMania whenever his busy schedule allows him to, he may be available this year. As pointed out by Raj Giri of WrestlingInc.com, the People's Champion will begin working on his next film, Jungle Cruise in May - a month after WrestleMania.
As Giri noted, the problem is that Rock may not be allowed to compete - given that movie producers insure their actors in case they fall ill, get hurt or die. Rock suffered an injury at WrestleMania 29, which forced the film Hercules to move back for several weeks.
But if the wrestling icon can't compete this year, the creative team has a backup plan in place. PWInsider reported that if The Rock doesn't team up with Rousey, Braun Strowman could join forces with the former UFC star instead.
The Monster Among Men teased a feud with The Game after threatening and bodyslamming him after they led Team Raw to victory at the Survivor Series pay-per-view. With Strowman seemingly finishing his feud with Kane, the big man will likely start a new rivalry as the road to WrestleMania begins.
It would only be fitting if Rock and Rousey did get to team up, though. They appeared in a segment together at WrestleMania 31, confronting and overpowering Triple H and Stephanie themselves. But if The Rock doesn't team up with Rousey, Strowman is at least an excellent replacement.
