The much rumoured Roman Reigns versus The Rock match gathered more steam again as Roman Reigns recently called out The Great One fueling further speculation of a showdown between the two. A match between the two has been touted for sometime (as early as March of this year) with strong rumours that The Tribal Chief and current WWE Universal Champion was looking to take on The People’s Champion at next years WrestleMania although a set date for a potential showdown has yet to be confirmed.
Speaking on The Keyshawn, JWill & Max Show earlier this week Roman said:
“I think with everything that I’ve done, with where I’ve pushed this persona, and the character work, and my claim, my rightful claim at the head of this table. Us being very close and like family, I don’t think there’s any other choice. If he ever wanted to get back into a WWE ring, I am definitely the guy he’s going to want to be facing off against.”
The Rock last appeared for the WWE at the 20th Anniversary of SmackDown back in 2019 in a segment cutting a promo against Baron Corbin alongside current WWE Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch. It is the 25th anniversary since The Rock made his WWE debut at the Survivor Series which has also led to speculation of a possible appearance from himself at this Sunday’s Survivor Series PPV. Roman Reigns is currently scheduled to take on current WWE Champion Big E in a one on one contest at this Sunday’s PPV.
