Elias recently took part in a media scrum ahead of WrestleMania 35 where he spoke about a wide range of topics.
During the scrum, he was asked about recently singing with Finn Balor at a live event, and if there are any other people, he would want to sing along with. This led to Elias talking about how he thinks The Rock is afraid of him and challenged him to be a man and show up to a WWE event.
This comes after Elias previously challenged both John Cena and The Undertaker. In a previous interview, the Monday Night RAW mentioned how he thinks he needs a program with a top star who has a great character.
“I believe he’s afraid of Elias. If The Rock has it in him, by all means, come on down, show up, try and walk with Elias. I’ll show you how it’s done.”
Every year there is speculation on whether he will appear at WrestleMania. He hasn’t wrestled since WrestleMania 29 against Cena but did have technically a match with Erick Rowan at WrestleMania 32, but it was very brief.
WWE has yet to advertise The Rock for WrestleMania 35. Thus, it’s not likely “The Great One” will make an appearance.
