Last updated

It has been reported that The Rock would not be able to make it to WrestleMania to face Roman Reigns, and the Tribal Chief has reacted.

Appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to promote the Royal Rumble event, Reigns discussed the rumors that The Great One won’t be able to make it to ‘Mania.

“That’s been the rumors, a huge buzz on that for years now, but it’s really picked up in the last couple of years”, the WWE Champion began.

“I believe he just came out with a statement saying he’s not going to be ready in time, which that’s the kind of face everyone’s making, like, hold on, he trains every single day” Reigns added.

“He’s huge. To his defense it’s one thing to train with weights and bodybuilding to look the part, but to get into the ring to do a main event match, an Undisputed WWE Universal Championship match? It takes a lot of conditioning. It beats up your body” Reigns revealed.

“There’s more that goes into it than just training in the weight room. It’s a professional athlete situation. You have to condition. He does two out of the three things perfectly.

“His nutrition and his weight training is on point, but you have to condition yourself, and you have to be ready to be ready to fall down. You can never get away from that. That’s number one, Dwayne. When you’re going up against Roman Reigns, you better get ready to fall down” the Tribal Chief concluded.
