Backstage News On Roman Reigns vs. The Rock After Today’s Interview

Roman Reigns vs The Rock WrestleMania 39 3 WrestleFeed App

During an interview on ESPN First Take earlier today, The Rock was asked about his rumored match against Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns.

The Great One had some very interesting comments:

“I’m a long gamer. I like to build. Something like this, what this is. If, myself and Roman Reigns, were to main event WrestleMania, and I mean this very respectfully of all the WrestleManias prior because I grew up in this business and I love it.

We could possibly put on, with us as the main event and this incredible group of men and women, we could possibly put on the greatest and biggest WrestleMania of all time.

There’s a chance. I love this business. I love pro wrestling. I love WWE. I also have this deep passion to grow it and build it. If we’re going to do something like this, I want the world to watch.”

After being appointed to the Board of Directors of TKO Group Holdings, the parent company of WWE and UFC, Rock tweeted the following:

“My Grandfather and my father helped build this table. Now I’m at the head of it.

Acknowledge me!”

After this interview came out, the Wrestling Observer provided the following update on the status of this dream match:

“As far as WrestleMania goes, he has not signed as of today. He was on First Take, and he certainly strongly hinted at it. It is absolutely in play. It is not a done deal.

He wants to do WrestleMania this year. There are forces that are interested in how much value he could bring to Saudi Arabia. But he would rather do WrestleMania as it stands now. So it depends. I think there’s balls in play.

Nothing is 100% and there’s people who would like to convince him they can make tons of extra money from Saudi Arabia to do it. So we don’t know the answers, this is all in the process of being worked out right now.

But he is absolutely looking at doing the match with Roman Reigns. He’s absolutely looking at doing it at WrestleMania. It’s not signed.”
