Paul Heyman: Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns At WrestleMania 38 Is Bigger Box Office Than The Rock

Paul Heyman wants more time to build a match with The Rock.

The Rock's name has been in the headlines as Survivor Series marks the 25th anniversary of his debut. Fans are speculating that The Rock will appear at Survivor Series to set up a match against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 38.

Paul Heyman doesn't believe that will happen.

"This coming April? Not a chance," Heyman told Ariel Helwani of BT Sport. "Number one, I would want to spend a lot more time on that storyline instead of rushing it. Five months. For something that enormous, I would want more time in it. Number two, I think Dwayne's schedule for next year is in place and he's not available. Even if he was, I don't think it would be bigger box office at the moment, if you look at the trajectory right now, isn't it Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns?"

When Helwani mentioned that fans have seen Reigns vs. Lesnar, Heyman replied, "Did it end the storyline or did it make it more compelling and more intriguing? Or Big E? Or Drew McIntyre? I can certainly make the case for Roman Reigns vs. Drew McIntyre as well. Is there a time and a place for Roman Reigns vs. The Rock? Absolutely. Is Hollywood the place to do it? Seems like a natural place for The Rock to main event his final main event at WrestleMania. I don't think this coming April is the place for Roman Reigns vs. Dwayne Johnson."
