Despite it being the best part of a year away, plans for WrestleMania look to be more complicated than normal, due to The Rock having a busy schedule come April next year.

The Rock is due to be promoting the film "Fast and Furious 7", which has has its release date moved forward a week, to April 3rd 2015.

Obviously, with these massive commitments, it remains to be seen whether Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson will make a return to the square circle.

There is still major interest in bringing back one of their prodigal sons for the biggest show of the year, but at this moment the return is looking unlikely.

Finding the right deal

The Rock himself has come out and said he will only come back if the money, and the match, is bigger than the two he had with John Cena.

Vince McMahon is keen on doing a plan with Brock Lesnar and The Rock, a program that would have huge cross-over appeal, with both Hollywood and UFC being represented in the fight.

Indeed, this program between the two giants has been long rumored. Shortly after WrestleMania 29 Lesnar was on screen staring down a photo of the 'Peoples Champion' - on his way through to the office of Triple H.

This was meant to be a teaser for a feud between the two, with the match taking place at this year's WrestleMania, but a serious injury to The Rock put him off a return this year.

Contingency Plan

If the great one decides that this year's WrestleMania isn't for him, than there is a contingency plan in place, involving none other than The Rocks cousin - Roman Reigns.

Vince has put "the word out" that Reigns needs to be built up to the point where his challenge against Lesnar shows him as having a legitimate chance of winning.

This not only includes cleanly beating established names within the WWE (such as Triple H and Randy Orton), but also putting on entertaining single matches that go the distance, something he has not had to do in his fledgling career so far.

Some may consider a headlining WrestleMania spot too soon for the former Shield member, but if his work-rate is anything to go by there is a strong chance he will be ready to seize the biggest moment of his career.

WrestleMania Rumors

Regardless of The Rocks return or not, the WWE are planning on doing a Lesnar and Reigns feud, one that should see the latter coming out on top. 

Lesnars' name alone should be enough to put over Reigns as one of the top guys in the industry, and make him set in the WWE for a long time.
