Hollywood actors want to face The Rock and John Cena at WrestleMania

Hollywood’s top veterans Mark Wahlberg and Kevin Hart have said they want a tag team match against The Rock and John Cena at the next WrestleMania.

The Rock and John Cena were once WWE flag bearers. Both Superstars had multiple WrestleMania main events and won multiple WWE Championships during their tenure. However, both left the company to become A-List actors.

Years later, the two have become mainstream actors and household names in the industry. Wahlberg and Hart were recently interviewed by Becky Lynch while promoting their upcoming movie, me time.

During the interview, Wahlberg said he would team up with Hart to face the former champions at WrestleMania 39:

Both actors are no strangers to their potential WrestleMania opponents. Johnson worked with Wahlberg on Pain and Gain.

During this time, Cena worked with Wahlberg on Daddy’s house 1 and 2. Hart and Johnson are also real-life best friends.


What are the rumored plans for The Rock and John Cena for WrestleMania 39?

The Cenation frontman slowly became a part-time wrestler, transitioning into acting. A few years later, he was given his breakout role as The peacemaker for DC Comics. Johnson, who was already an established A-Lister, also had the role of black adam under the same studios.

After competing at WrestleMania, the two are self-made Hollywood megastars who started their WWE careers.

However, fans have often asked when the two will return to wrestling in any capacity. In June 2022, Cena returned to WWE to celebrate his 20th anniversary in the company and hinted that he would be back soon.

It is impossible to summarize the last 20 years of life in a single message, but the team @WWE make magic! I’m excited and can’t wait to C le @WWEuniverse on #WWERaw! twitter.com/WWE/status/154…

According to multiple reports from Dave Meltzer, The Rock is currently set to return to the Biggest Stage of Them All next year, however, it will depend on whether he takes on a bigger project than his WrestleMania match against Reigns.

As for The Leader of Cenation, he was rumored to face Theory at this year’s SummerSlam, but those plans were canceled due to Cena’s commitment to film the second season of DC’s Peacemaker.

However, Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported that Cena’s match against Theory was likely delayed until WrestleMania 39.

Seeds have been planted for these storylines to develop in the coming months as we get closer to the event. It will be interesting to see if the two Hollywood A-Listers will face off again on the biggest stage of all.
