One of the contests that fans of the WWE Universe have wanted to see for several years now, is the whole family challenge between the Tribal Chief of the Stamford company, Roman Reigns and the decidedly more famous cousin on a global and international level, The Rock.
After disappearing from the rings of the McMahon company, The Rock has in fact embarked on a stellar career on film sets in the United States, becoming the highest-paid Hollywood actor of all, for two years in a row. Although his commitments are many and his agenda is always packed, on several occasions The Rock has managed to make a few trips to the rings that made him famous before the cinema, those of the WWE, with the former world champion who in fact also crowned cousin Roman, when he won his only Royal Rumble, in 2015.
Roman Reigns will be putting the WWE Universal title on the line
Talking about one of the disputes that would sell most at the moment on pro-wrestling markets around the world, namely the one between The Rock and Roman Reigns, the absolute champion of Friday Night Smackdown wanted to speak, who in his latest interview with Ariel Helwani's microphones, for ESPN, said: "I want to create the greatest and most monumental moments that the history of entertainment can face.
So if to do this you have to involve him in the picture too, then absolutely yes. And it all comes back to the end and I think he would agree with that too, so you just have to see what the audience thinks about it. What do our fans want to see? How will we entertain them? It will be necessary to create the trick to make it all seem real and credible.
These are the moments I want to create." Although Vince McMahon has already studied the idea several times to bring Rocky back to his rings, in recent years it has seemed increasingly complicated, with the contracts that tied the actor to his films, that prevented him from taking part in anything active in the WWE rings, since if he got injured, The Rock would have blocked all the filming and projects related to him, which would have lost millions and millions of dollars due to his absence.
We'll see in the next few years if WWE finds a way to bring its beloved former world champion back to the McMahon square, much to everyone's happiness. At the upcoming WrestleMania 37 show, Roman Reigns will put the WWE Universal title on the line against Edge and Daniel Bryan in a Triple Threat match.
The reigning champion was originally set to face Edge in a singles match, however, Bryan was added to the title picture in the lead-up to 'Mania 37. Reigns, Edge, and Bryan will be headlining Night Two of WrestleMania 37 in a match that is expected to be another classic. WrestleMania 37 is scheduled for April 10 and 11.
