Acclaimed pro wrestling historian Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Radio has reported that after years of speculation about a possible match between Samoan cousins Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Roman Reigns, the stars have finally aligned, and rumor has it that they will lock horns on the WWE WrestleMania 39 match card.
Although this match isn’t 100% assured to happen owing to The Rock’s busy ever changing Hollywood schedule and the long time left for WM 39 but WWE sure wants this big money match and is pushing hard for it to work out.
“It’s the plan. It’s 100% the plan for this year. But the idea is, it’s the plan if he can do it. We’re still months away, months and months away,” said Meltzer very recently.
Paul Heyman sent a message to The Rock before the WWE WrestleMania 39 Match card is locked
🚨Despite being the plan dating back to Vince McMahon's time in charge, reports state that WWE's intention is still to "100%" book Roman Reigns v The Rock as the main event of WrestleMania 39 in April 2023.

Even the wise man to the Tribal chief Paul Heyman has confirmed in a recent interview during the MacMania podcast, that Reigns won’t be opposed to giving The Rock a shot at the Undisputed WWE Universal title in a high-profile match anytime. He went ahead and issued a challenge to the Great One on behalf of the WWE Universal champion and even had the audacity to say that the Tribal Chief would “Smash” the 10-time champ, the Brahma Bull.
If this match really happens, it would be a spectacle because of the explosive nature and family history that these two super athletes share.

They have appeared together on some occasions in the ring as well as in the Hobbs and Shaw movie, a spin off from the Fast and Furious franchise. But never have they stood across the ring facing each other. And that is precisely the reason why this rivalry and this match is so fresh and worth watching.
We wonder which cousin the Usos will side with when the time comes…Fingers crossed!
