During a recent interview with Inside the Ropes, Paul Heyman commented on The Rock possibly challenging Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship at WrestleMania 38, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:
On The Rock challenging Roman Reigns at WrestleMania: “Well, you ask multiple questions in one diatribe, so I’ll try to answer them as succinctly as possible. One, Rock schmock. Who doesn’t want to main event WrestleMania against Roman Reigns? Anybody who says they wouldn’t be interested in a WrestleMania main event is lying to you. Anybody who suggests they wouldn’t be interested in the WrestleMania main event against Roman Reigns is lying to you. Roman Reigns is the most dominant WrestleMania main eventer in history. And Rock is just one of many people who are clamoring to step into the ring with Roman Reigns at any time, especially at WrestleMania.”
On The Rock’s place at the table: “As for whether The Rock is a member of the table? I serve as Special Counsel to the Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns. That is not a subject Roman Reigns wishes to address publicly at this time, either in The Rock’s favour or to The Rock’s detriment, because The Rock may not be welcome at our table. Roman Reigns will let you know when it’s appropriate for Roman Reigns to let you know.”
On what will happen to Dwayne Johnson if he tries to get into the ring with Reigns: “If The Rock steps into the ring with Roman Reigns at any time, let alone at WrestleMania, that will be The Rock’s farewell, whether The Rock wants it to be or not.”
Of course, there have been rumors for months now that The Rock vs. Roman Reigns will be taking place at WrestleMania 38. Obviously, it’s all going to depend on The Rock’s filming schedule at the time.
