You might want to get him. There are very few stars in the history of professional wrestling as the Rock. Despite not being around for very long compared to other top names, the Rock was regularly on top of WWE for a few years before moving on to Hollywood and conquering it as well. Even as a top movie star, the Rock continues to pop in to WWE from time to time though, and that might be the case again.
According to Wrestling Observer Radio, the current plan is still to have the Rock face Roman Reigns in a match at WrestleMania 39 next year in Los Angeles. The theory at the moment is that the Rock wants to have the match but his schedule could get in the way. Age is a factor as well, as Rock will be turning fifty years old later this year. Rock has not wrestled a match since 2016, when he defeated Erick Rowan in six seconds at WrestleMania 32.
Opinion: This is firmly in the “I’ll believe it when I see it” category, but if WWE can pull this off, and have Reigns face the Rock after a two and a half year title reign, we could be in for something very special. I have no idea how the match would go and ultimately I don’t think it matters as the moment alone could carry everything. That being said, this is going to be tricky to make work and I don’t know if WWE can pull it off.
What do you think of the idea? Will the match take place? Let us know in the comments below.
