Being a Hollywood star, The Rock doesn’t have much time for WWE anymore. He may make a few one-off appearances, here and there but there’s possibly no way that he would be wrestling in a ring, soon. However, when WWE goes Hollywood for WrestleMania 37, it would be hard for him to pass up an opportunity in case WWE starts to plan a big match featuring him.
If it happens against a name like Roman Reigns then it’s pretty evident that The Rock is not going to pass it down. The same was hinted by the current franchise player during a recent media session.
While speaking to the media outlets in WrestleMania 37 press conference, Roman Reigns agreed that the SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, California would be a perfect place to make this dream match a reality. He also took this chance to speak directly to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as well. Below are the comments from the four-time world champion in the WWE,
“I said it earlier, man — If there’s a stadium — hey, DJ, check it out. You know everyone’s always dream match, me and him. First of all, we’re family so it’s all love. If there was going to be an event for him to compete in, to perform in. A venue to hold that mass-scale type of attention he will bring, it’s right here in your backyard. You know what I mean? You ain’t gotta go far.”

Without a doubt, WWE would love to make this match reality, at some point. But there’s a lot of ifs and buts to be fixed in order to make it happen. The Rock has no time to come back to his home of pro-wrestling, leaving the comfort zone of the movie industry. The Rock stays in shape all the time but performing in the squared circle takes a whole new kind of dedication.
Roman Reigns vs. The Rock was rumored on several occasions in the past including the upcoming edition of WrestleMania. It takes place in the state of Florida where the Samoan Dynasty has its roots. But again, The Rock’s schedule conflict did not allow WWE to plan this match.
We have to wait for future updates regarding this mega showdown. For now, Roman Reigns is scheduled to face The Fiend at WrestleMania 36 for the Universal Championship.
