The Rock Reveals First WWE Return Match?

The Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns is seemingly unstoppable and the fans have been buzzing around that his cousin, The Rock will be a potential opponent down the line. It seems he would be a suitable contender for the title but that match might be in the works for WrestleMania 39 which has been billed as WrestleMania Hollywood. It turns out that ‘The Great One’ has teased a match against ‘The Tribal Chief.’



The Rock seemingly wants a match with Roman Reigns at WrestleMania

The Rock has sown the seeds for a WrestleMania match with his cousin and Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns via Young Rock.  During Tuesday’s episode of the NBC show about the early life of Dwayne Johnson, the actor playing Johnson could be seen watching wrestling with his family when a child actor playing Reigns jumped on him. When little Reigns wanted to wrestle and told him to acknowledge him, Johnson’s actor stated that a match like that can only happen at WrestleMania.

Over the last few years, there has been talking about this blockbuster bout that would likely be Rock’s final match. It all came down to The Rock’s schedule as it would have to be clear and in addition to his movie commitments, he is also deeply involved with the XFL when it re-launches next spring. As recently as last month, Dave Meltzer talked about the working plan for next year’s WrestleMania and he said that The Rock wants to do the match but nothing is etched in stone.

We will have to now wait and see if the match takes place next year at ‘The Show of Shows.’
