The Rock, also known as The Great One, recently returned to WWE and joined The Bloodline stable on the Road to WrestleMania. This move followed backlash from fans over almost replacing Cody Rhodes at The Show of Shows. During WrestleMania weekend, The Rock not only inducted his grandmother, Lia Maivia, into the Hall of Fame but also shared a touching message dedicated to her on social media.

Lia Maivia, a significant figure in wrestling history, was not only The Rock’s grandmother but also the wife of Peter Maivia. She made a mark as one of the first female wrestling promoters, notably handling her husband’s promotion, Polynesian Pro Wrestling in Hawaii. The Rock’s heartfelt social media post included memories of Maivia’s kindness, strength, and her pioneering role in the male-dominated world of pro wrestling in the early 80s.

The Rock’s post on Instagram highlighted his admiration for his grandmother and her impact on his life. He described her as a loving figure who instilled in him the values of kindness, pride, and the “fa’a Samoa,” the Samoan way. Reflecting on her tenacity in a challenging industry, he emphasized her trailblazing efforts for women in wrestling, creating opportunities for wrestlers to thrive. The post also humorously mentioned the shared family trait of “paying da bills,” showcasing a mix of affection and respect for his grandmother.

In a separate event, The Rock and his cousin Roman Reigns faced Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 40. Despite their initial victory, The Tribal Chief, Reigns, lost his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship to Rhodes. Post-WrestleMania, The Rock hinted at a future showdown with Cody Rhodes, adding suspense to his potential return to the ring. With Reigns currently on hiatus and Solo Sikoa stepping in, the dynamics within The Bloodline stable are evolving, leaving fans eager for The Rock’s return and a possible clash with Cody Rhodes.
