On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that Rock indicated that he has no time to get into shape.
“We were told that unless he changes his mind in the next few days, since a deadline for Mania plans is coming, that he’s indicated he won’t have time to get into the kind of shape he feels he needs to be in to do a main event match with Roman Reigns, but kept the door open for something in the future. Of course it is a possibility that it’s something being kept a secret from everyone.”H/T Ringside News
Meltzer also said that WWE already has a backup plan if Rock unable to compete at WrestleMania 39.
The Rock along with a few other partners purchased XFL a couple of years ago and it will launch in February. Therefore, Rock will be heavily involved with XFL and have no time for training for a match.
“Johnson [Rock] right now has different projects going on, most importantly the launching of the XFL which debuts the weekend of 2/18 and he will be very heavily involved with the promotion of the league. He had said he would need to have training time to be able to get in ring shape. So his decision comes down to his belief of having adequate time to prepare.”H/T Ringside News
