Even though this year's WrestleMania 38 in Dallas, Texas, has yet to happen, WWE is already looking to make WrestleMania 39 in Inglewood, California, its biggest ever.

In this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer said the idea for next year's event at SoFi Stadium is to have Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson vs. Roman Reigns and Ronda Rousey vs. Becky Lynch as its two big showcase matches.

He also noted "a million things may happen between then and now" considering Johnson's schedule and how things are always changing in WWE, but that Rousey's deal is for her to be a regular on SmackDown through next year's Mania at minimum.

After nearly two years away, Rousey returned at this year's women's Royal Rumble match and won it. She is expected to use the win to challenge SmackDown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair at this year's WrestleMania which should be confirmed Friday night.

When news initially broke of Rousey returning, many thought a match against Lynch at this year's WrestleMania would be the plan given their stature and history.

Johnson hasn't wrestled since 2016's WrestleMania 32 in Dallas when he defeated Erick Rowan in six seconds. Before that, he was in WWE for three matches in 2013 against CM Punk (twice) and John Cena.
