The Rock vs Roman Reigns was supposed to happen at WrestleMania 39 but due to The Great One’s insanely busy schedule, he was simply not able to be physically prepared for the bout. It’s unlikely to happen at WrestleMania 40 either but it appears the bout is being eyed for a Saudi Arabia event.

In order to build anticipation for the already-hyped match, The Rock revealed that talks about a match with The Head of The Table are definitely happening already. Naturally, this got fans excited in a big way.

According to Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the potential match between The Rock and Roman Reigns is still being considered. Rock has expressed his interest in media interviews and is reportedly advocating strongly for the matchup.

Meltzer mentioned that discussions have included the possibility of holding the match in Saudi Arabia, with the idea that this bout could result in the government offering higher financial compensation to both the company and The Rock.


However, the potential match between The Rock and Roman Reigns is not confirmed. Dave Meltzer noted it might take place at next year’s WrestleMania in the end.

”It also could be at next year’s Mania, but that would make many years in a row where that much was talked about for “next year’s Mania.”

We will have to wait and see when The Rock and Roman Reigns will finally square off against each other, as the match will undoubtedly become one of the most iconic in pro wrestling history.
