Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson addressed the possibility of facing Roman Reigns at WWE WrestleMania 40 in a recent interview with the Will Cain Show on Fox News. The Rock, who returned to WWE a few weeks ago and joined TKO’s Board of Directors, discussed the idea of a potential showdown with Reigns.

The Rock emphasized his long-term vision and building approach, expressing interest in the idea of facing Roman Reigns and creating something significant if they were to have such a match. The Rock, who has deep family roots in the wrestling business, mentioned that he was born into it, with his grandfather wrestling for Vince McMahon Sr. and his father making a name for himself in the 80s.

“We’re talking about that right now. I’d like to consider myself a long gamer and a builder. So, the idea of going up against Roman Reigns and creating, if we were to do something like that, quite possibly, and I mean this respectfully of all the other WrestleManias before us, and keep in mind, Will, as you know, I was born into the wrestling business with my grandfather and my dad. My grandfather wrestled for Vince McMahon Sr. back when it was called the WWF, my dad came along in the 80s, Rocky Johnson, and here I come along.”

The Rock hinted at the potential for their match to become the biggest WrestleMania event of all time due to their combined star power and the anticipation surrounding their clash. While he didn’t confirm the match outright, he indicated that discussions were ongoing to potentially make it happen.


“So, I think with all the success and the buildup of all the WrestleManias in the past, if we were to do something like that, we could possibly put on the biggest WrestleMania of all time. So, the short answer and the long answer is we’re figuring it out.”

The Rock’s comments suggest that he is open to the idea of facing Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40 and recognizes the immense potential such a match would have in terms of drawing attention and making history in the world of professional wrestling.

Given the potential for a match between The Rock and Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40, what are your thoughts on this potential showdown, and how do you think it would impact the legacy of WrestleMania as a whole if it were to happen?
