As we gear up towards The Road To Wrestlemania, rumors of what will be eventually hosted at WWE’s mega show are invariably going to begin circulating.
One such rumor revolves around a projected match between Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson squaring up against Roman Reigns.
The supposed plan was to have The Rock enter and win the 2019 Royal Rumble. The Brahma Bull would then challenge Roman Reigns for the Universal Title at Wrestlemania 35 in New Jersey. These plans, however, were reportedly scuppered once Reigns sadly announced his renewed battle with leukemia.
According to Dave Meltzer, that report was completely unsubstantiated. He proceeded to shut it down on the F4WOnline Message Board. When asked about these apparent plans, Meltzer admitted that it sounded false, claiming that it “[…] didn’t sound believable.” After checking with a source, he confirmed that “[This rumor is] Not true at all.”
The Rock hasn’t performed in a main event capacity for the company since his feud with John Cena in 2013. This would culminate in a showdown between the two at Wrestlemania 29 where Cena would win back the WWE Championship.
He did, however, have a minor role at Wrestlemania 32, setting a Wrestlemania record for the fastest victory in ‘Mania history, pinning Erick Rowan in an impromptu match in only six seconds.
Would you have liked to have seen this match go down? Who do you think would have won, if it had?
