The Rock knows Roman Reigns is the big money match at WrestleMania

There’s no telling when The Rock will come back to WWE, or if he’ll ever come back to wrestle another match, but there’s no reason to think he won’t. He’s still relatively young and in good enough shape to work a WrestleMania or two.

And he knows exactly the right guy to put across from him, as he mentioned in a talk with Hiram Garcia on his YouTube channel:

“You know, you and I have talked about this, and it’s so funny how a lot of people always say, ‘well, if you ever go back to WrestleMania, who would be the opponent that you would face?’ Feels like the one that would make sense, right, would be Roman. In terms of box-office draw…

He then quickly jokes about how WWE would hook him into a multi year feud that would span more than one WrestleMania, much like he did with John Cena. This is pro wrestling, after all, and that’s The Rock. You gotta get as much out of him as you can.

If they ever did get together for that match, “The Great One” is ready to do the job:

“But you know what, the truth is, I would be honored not only to share the ring with Roman and to go back to the WWE but of course, man, I would be honored to have him raise his hand on that one.”

Now that Reigns is a heel, and already going up against family, maybe this can happen sooner rather than later.
