Meltzer also pointed out that The Rock vs. Roman Reigns would be a massive financial draw due to the star power and mainstream appeal of both wrestlers. The revenue generated from WrestleMania sponsorships, estimated to be over $20 million, would make this match highly attractive to potential sponsors. Although traditional pay-per-view buys may not be a significant factor, the match’s potential to increase viewership and engagement on non-linear WWE television platforms is substantial.

Will The Rock Face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40?

“The reality is that even though the [Cody] Rhodes match has been teased and built on television, the Johnson match is far bigger financially. With Wrestlemania sponsorship now a $20 million or more revenue stream, such a match is far bigger to potential sponsors. While there is no significant money in PPV, although this match would be expected to do more, and the live gate for the shows will be the same either way since they are selling out both nights, it will set the record for the most people ever watching a WWE non-linear television event.”

In addition, it’s worth noting that regardless of the match’s location, WrestleMania or Elimination Chamber, the live gate for the events is expected to be similar since WWE typically sells out both nights of WrestleMania. However, the potential Rock vs. Reigns clash would likely set a new record for the most viewers ever watching a WWE non-linear television event, further emphasizing its significance.
