There is a legitimate concern that Roman Reigns could be booed out of Wrestlemania on Sunday by over one-hundred thousand people as he wins the WWE title.
However, The Rock is no stranger to Roman, or to negative reactions early in his career. On his Instagram, The People’s Champion recently gave the following advice to his cousin.

“1997, I was 25yrs old, the youngest Intercontinental Champion in WWE history and performing in #WrestleMania13.
It would become one of the most defining moments of my life. Not because it was my first WrestleMania I had the privilege to be a part of, but because I was boo’d out of the building. Literally boo’s from 20,000 people that screamed “Get the f*ck outta here”. And when you’re supposed to be a good guy or “babyface” in wrestling speak – getting boo’d is the worst thing that can ever happen. They boo’d me because I wasn’t being real. I was told by the company how to act, how to respond to fans and the worst part of all.. I was told what to say and what not to say.”
6 months later I was the hottest heel in the company.
Even though I hated being boo’d out of the building at WrestleMania13, I learned one of the greatest life lessons that still serves me today. Be real. Be authentic. Be me.”
What do you think The Rock will do at Wrestlemania 32?
