It is expected that The Rock will appear to build a possible match with the WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns at the upcoming WrestleMania event when he shows up in the Survivor Series.
“The hope is for Dwayne Johnson to make an appearance at that show but that isn’t locked in. The hope is for around that time. If he’s involved that would make it a huge show and it would lead credence to Reigns vs. Johnson for WrestleMania.”Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer
Roman Reigns vs The Rock, Wrestlemania 38?
The Rock vs Reign made rumours last years and executives of the WWE expected to make the match in 2023, at WrestleMania 38.
The WWE audience always yearned to see him feud with The Rock since the emergence of Romans’ tribal chief/head of the table gimmick. Reigns spoke of a potential match against his cousin and 10-time world champion The Rock during an interview with ESPN’s Ariel Helwani earlier this year.
“I wanna create the largest, most monumental moments that sports entertainment can hold. So if that involves him in the picture, then absolutely. And it all comes back and I think he would agree to this, it all comes back to the audience. What do our fans wanna see? What’s gonna entertain? What’s gonna create that escapism where they feel like this is real. Those are the moments I wanna create,”Roman Reigns
For now, WWE rumoured plans for Roman Reigns WWE Champion is to face the returning John Cena at SummerSlam this year, potentially involved in a feud with the returning Brock Lesnar. And then switch his attention to WrestleMania 38’s battle against the Rock.
WWE will undoubtedly fill their events for the rest of the year full of surprises and excitement while returning to live tours, so it’s a real hope that the return of Rock might come!
