In a recent interview that sent shockwaves through the WWE Universe, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson dropped a tantalizing hint about a potential clash with Roman Reigns, his real-life cousin and the reigning WWE Universal Champion.
The electrifying return of The Great One to World Wrestling Entertainment on the January 1, 2024, edition of Monday Night RAW, where he called out Reigns using the latter's "Head of the Table" catchphrase, had fans on the edge of their seats, eagerly anticipating an official announcement for this dream match.
During a candid conversation on ESPN First Take, The Rock acknowledged the possibility of a dream showdown with Roman Reigns at WrestleMania, WWE's grandest stage. The People's Champion declared that if the match were to materialize, it would undoubtedly become one of WrestleMania's most epic editions.
WrestleOps' Twitter account recently highlighted The Great One's interview, sparking a frenzy among fans who eagerly shared their excitement and speculations.
The Rock's Global Commitment
Adding to the buzz, The Rock recently assumed a role as a board member of WWE's parent company, TKO Group Holdings.
In an interview covered by Variety, he discussed his commitment to elevating TKO, WWE, and UFC to new heights on a global scale. The Rock expressed immense pride in representing the remarkable athletes and performers who pour their heart and soul into entertaining fans worldwide.
"I’m very motivated to help continue to globally expand our TKO, WWE, and UFC businesses as the worldwide leaders in sports and entertainment — while proudly representing so many phenomenal athletes and performers who show up every day putting in the hard work with their own two hands to make their dreams come true and deliver for our audiences.
I’ve been there, I’m still there and this is for them," The Rock stated. As the WWE Universe buzzes with anticipation, speculation runs rife. Many fans speculate that Roman Reigns might relinquish his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship to Randy Orton at the 2024 Royal Rumble Premium Live Event.
This could potentially set the stage for a compelling storyline pitting The Viper against Cody Rhodes on Night One of WrestleMania 40. On the flip side, The Tribal Chief might well find himself locking horns with The Rock on Night Two of The Show of Shows, in a battle for the coveted "Head of the Table" title.
WWE's plans for Reigns' future remain shrouded in mystery, leaving fans eagerly awaiting further developments in this electrifying saga.
