Paul Heyman will counsel Roman Reigns to face the Rock if The People’s Champ decides to return to WWE.
Reigns has been one of the top stars of WWE for years, dominating in many different ways.
He will be challenged by his own matchup, The Rock, with whom he shares a history.
While speaking on the MackMania podcast:
“I mean, listen, if Dwayne Johnson wants the publicity to lose to Roman Reigns, we’ll give him a title match. He doesn’t even have to wait in line or win a battle Royal or whatever, there’s box office there. I’m impressed with what Dwayne Johnson has done outside of WWE and I would counsel Roman Reigns that we could make a special provision to defend the title and smash Dwayne Johnson. Dwayne Johnson wants to take that beating, he is more than welcome to step up to The Tribal Chief, as long as he understands that when the match is over, he’s going to be like everyone else, and that he’s going to acknowledge The Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns,” said Heyman.
Will the rock face Roman Reigns?
This year, The Rock will not return to face Roman Reigns at Wrestle Mania, but he could still make an appearance depending on how WWE
plots him heading into the event.
Vince Russo revealed that it is possible for The Tribal Chief to be turned heel heading into WrestleMania based on how WWE books him for the event.
Are Roman Reigns and The Rock really cousins?
With wrestling families having generations of wrestlers, Roman Reigns and The Rock are cousins.
They both represent the Samoan wrestling family which has been on WWE’s roster for three decades.
