Roman Reigns eyes match with The Rock but only at WrestleMania

Oh so you’re saying you’re too good for WWE Great Balls of Fire or WWE Roadblock End of the Line, Roman? With three consecutive WrestleMania main event billings to his credit, there is only way for Roman Reigns to go on the card.

Sitting down with the UK Mirror, Reigns was asked about the long rumored potential WrestleMania 34 match with current WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar.

“You know with the history I have with WrestleMania, I've been in the main event three years in a row, the only thing I think about is how am I going to be in the main event again. It's been Godsent, but at the same time it can be stressful, because there really is nowhere but down to go. For me I want everything to be as meaningful and impactful as possible. Really the only way to do that now is to maintain that level of success and maintain that main event level, to go out there in front of the biggest crowd of the year and maintain that main event energy that I show week in, week out, 52 weeks of the year there is no off-season. Anything less than a main event, wouldn't be a disappointment, because I'm always proud to be part of the biggest live event in the world, WrestleMania, that's always going to be a great opportunity and a successful day. But when you've main evented three WrestleManias in a row, you don't want to chase anything else but the main event.”

Fully entrenched at the top of the marquee for the remainder of his WWE career, Reigns doesn’t want to lose his main event spot anytime soon. One way to keep the “Reigns main event train” rolling would be a potential quote, unquote dream fight with his cousin The Rock.

Reigns knows this match-up would be another career milestone to check-off and he’s already planting the seeds for an inter-family Samoan WrestleMania main event.

“Yeah I mean, when I first heard about the match with Cena, I immediately was thinking 'man, let's save this, let's do this at WrestleMania'. But when the time is right, the time is right. But in the same light, I can only see me and Rock going at WrestleMania. Not only because of his schedule, but just the level of that match and the level of superstar that he is and you know, where I'm trying to get. But we also have a deep family tie. We represent the same family tree and having the opportunity to represent our culture, there would obviously have to be a sit down and we would have to express how we feel and the light we want to do this in... because there's a lot of people we represent watching. The last thing I want to do is make it confusing or anything like that.

But at the end of the day, I know it's a money match. And I'm the guy who is still in the ring, so if someone who isn't in the ring every single night wants to come back in the ring, we now call it my yard, so he is going to have to come to me and then we'll go from there. It won't go down anywhere other than a WWE ring, that's all I'm saying. If he wants to get it, then I'm not stepping back for anybody.”

Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 34. Reigns vs. John Cena ( or a Reigns-Rollins-Ambrose triple threat) at WrestleMania 35. Then Roman Reigns vs. The Rock at WrestleMania 36?

Don’t raise your hands all at once, but how excited are you for potentially six consecutive years of Roman Reigns WrestleMania main events?
