Without a doubt, Roman Reigns has been the centre of attention for WWE in recent years. The Tribal Chief has held the blue belt for more than two years and is the undisputed WWE Universal Champion.
Due to rumours that he might face The Rock at WrestleMania next year, Reigns’ performance there will be crucial. The opponent for the match is still up in the air, and it is unclear who he will face on the Grandest Stage of Them All.
The Tribal Chief’s most recent title defence took place at Crown Jewel versus Logan Paul. Since working a less demanding schedule, he has barely ever successfully defended the title. He is rumoured to defend the Championship in the Royal Rumble the following year.
The rumoured contest between The Rock and Roman Reigns is unknown, according to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. Even though there are backup plans for Cody Rhodes to take on Reigns in the event that Rock is unable to show up, things are still unclear.
”Regarding WrestleMania, Paul Levesque has made a decision on the Roman Reigns direction for WrestleMania in the event it is not Dwayne Johnson, which is a very real possibility. I don’t know that direction although Cody Rhodes would be the betting line favorite for those on the outside right now. So it’s not like there are multiple ideas for that match, only maybe two, Johnson and whoever the other plan would be with,” said Meltzer.
Fans are eager to see The Rock return to face Roman Reigns
Although WWE hasn’t made any official statements about The Brahma Bull’s anticipated comeback, the rumour mill has established that it may be happening. Reigns and The Rock are cousins, and The Rock has said that he wants to collaborate with his younger cousin.
At WrestleMania 29, The Rock faced John Cena in his final significant match. At WrestleMania 32, he did engage in combat with Erock Rowan, but it was a squash match that was over in less a minute. According to certain rumours, The Rock is unlikely to ever return again if he doesn’t compete at WrestleMania 39.
