Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson shares his thoughts on a potential WrestleMania match against Roman Reigns.
In a video that was posted on The Rock's channel, the former WWE Champion spoke on who would be his WrestleMania opponent if he were to return to the company. Rock simply stated that it would make sense if it were up against Reigns given their family history and the potentially huge box office draw that match would produce.
"You know, you and I have talked about this and it's so funny how a lot of people always say, 'Well if you were to go back to WrestleMania, who would be the opponent that you would face?' It feels like the one that would make sense, right, would be Roman. In terms of box office draw [it would be huge]," Rock said.
This would be Rock's first match since WrestleMania 32 when he quickly defeated Erick Rowan in a matter of seconds. When it came to who would win that match, Rock didn't exactly give out an answer, but talked about how the booking meeting would go.
The Rock joked that WWE would tell him that Reigns would beat Rock and then Rock gets his win back at another WrestleMania, which is what happened when Rock and John Cena did for WrestleMania 28 and 29. In that series, Rock won the match at WrestleMania 28 and Cena won the rematch the following year.
"Well, I tell you this right now. I know how that works. I'm not going down that road because I know how that conversation goes. 'Listen, here's what we're thinking. Roman beats you now at this WrestleMania, but listen. Before you guys say anything, then on the next one, that's when...' But you what, I would be honored to not only share the ring with Roman and to go back to the WWE, but of course I would be honored to have him raise his hand on that one," Rock said.
After hearing his comments, Roman issued the following response.
.@TheRock at #WrestleMania... Jey @WWEUsos at #WWEClash, my responsibility is putting our family’s name on top of the card and at the center of @WWE Universe. https://t.co/4uIOz0zHbb— Roman Reigns (@WWERomanReigns) September 23, 2020
