• Nick Khan Confirms WWE Has Big Plans To Help Roman Reigns Cross Over To Hollywood

After The Rock, Batista and John Cena, it looks like Roman Reigns could be the next WWE main eventer to cross over to Hollywood.

During an interview with The Town, WWE President Nick Khan confirmed that the company wants to help the current Undisputed WWE Universal Champion cross over to Hollywood.

Below are the highlights:

On WWE wanting to help Roman Reigns cross over to Hollywood:

“We think he’s certainly up there. We have big plans to help him cross over, which we think will be great for him and certainly great to do with him.”

On what The Rock was advised to do early in his Hollywood career:

“I think he was given advice early on to, ‘Hey, get rid of the muscles. Don’t be a handsome leading man. Distance yourself from WWE.’ You saw the result was like the Tooth Fairy movie.

He, to his credit, like Vince and like other people, has the unique ability to see things clearly. Instead of saying, ‘Hey, this Tooth Fairy thing was great! I made X number of millions of dollars on it!’ It was more, ‘This is not what I want this to be.’ It wasn’t authentic.”

On The Rock calling Vince McMahon for help back in the day:

“One of the people, Rock has shared with me and Vince has shared with me, Rock called was Vince.

Rock called Vince and said, ‘Hey, this is not working the way I think it should be working. I think I want to reattach to WWE and I think I need to get a new agent.’ Vince helped him do that, and Rock was on his path that he’s on now.

The inner voice has to match the outer voice. It’s the same thing with our characters. Rock, John Cena, Stone Cold, Roman Reigns. Who they are now is who they are in real life, just amplified. That tends to work best for us.

When you miscast someone, it never works in the film business.”
