The Rock opens up on potential WWE title run
Speaking to Brandon Davis of Comicbook.com, The Great One stated that he is not aware if he will get another title run. He added that him returning to the ring for another match would have to make sense:
“I don’t know if I have another title run, considering I’m the People’s Champion. But I don’t know if it’s another title run. I think possibly, you know, there might be another match down the road. It would have to make sense,” said The Rock.
The wrestler-turned-actor then gave his honest thoughts on Reigns and lavished praise on The Tribal Chief for his accolades. He revealed that he talks with Roman Reigns all the time and encourages him to do better. The Rock added that he’s very proud of Reigns and likes everything that Reigns and The Usos are doing right now:
“It seems like Roman, you know, I’m very close with Roman obviously, and we talk about this all the time, and I continue to encourage him to keep doing [his] thing, keep sharpening those skills,” Johnson said. “I think he’s doing a great job with his promo, his execution, his in-ring work. It all continues to improve and grow. And that’s always the best part, I think, about that world of professional wrestling is that when someone gets anointed and given the ball to run, they either score a touchdown with it or they don’t. But then some, not only score a touchdown with it, but then they begin to change the way the game is played. And in Roman’s case, he’s slowly doing that, and you could start to read the tea leaves. And again, I’m very, very proud of him. I like everything that he’s doing. I like everything that The Usos are doing. I like what they’re doing together, and we’ll see down the road.”
