The Rock is one of the biggest names in Hollywood, but he isn’t done in WWE just yet. There is, at least, one more match that he really wants to do before hanging up his boots. He wants a match against his cousin Roman Reigns.
It was previously reported that WWE is trying to get The Rock to come back for Survivor Series. The event, reportedly in Brooklyn, could be a possibility for Dwayne Johnson, but it’s not known what he would do at the show.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed The Rock’s desire to face Roman Reigns and how soon WWE will likely be able to work that out.
“Obviously The Rock & Roman Reigns is something that they’re building towards and it would be — every year gets tougher and tougher because Dwayne gets a year older and, you know, but I think he really wants to do a match against Roman Reigns. I think for sure it’ll be in next two WrestleManias, and if he can pull it off, the next WrestleMania.”
It was noted that WrestleMania in Dallas might be enough to bring The Rock back, but he’ll have to work it into his schedule. We’re not sure what WWE has in mind for Dwayne Johnson at WrestleMania, but they obviously want him at Survivor Series in some respect. The big question is whether he will be able to fit it into his incredibly demanding schedule.
