Not yet? Roman Reigns is closing in on three and a half years as WWE Universal Champion and is rapidly climbing the list of longest title reigns in wrestling history. One of the reasons Reigns has managed to hold onto the title for such a long time is how infrequently he defends the title, which has been an issue for several months. It seems that streak is likely to continue for at least another month and a half.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Reigns is currently not scheduled to appear at Elimination Chamber in Perth, Australia on February 24, though there is still the chance that could change. This comes after the Rock returned and teased a match with Reigns, which has led to speculation that the match could take place at Elimination Chamber. The Western Australian government reportedly requested Rock to appear at the show, but it is not clear if that will happen either. Rock’s next WWE appearance has not been announced.

Reigns vs. Rock could be huge. Check out the challenge, plus the two on their own:

Opinion: This is the kind of question that is going to come up over and over now that the Rock has teased a Reigns showdown and WWE had to know that was coming. At the same time though, barring a Hollywood commitment, I cannot imagine Rock vs. Reigns being set up on about six weeks’ notice. I’m not sure how the match is going to go, but they have certainly got my attention and that is a great start.

Will Rock vs. Reigns happen? How would you put it together? Let us know in the comments below.
