The Rock vs Roman Reigns: Update on the WrestleMania dream match

The Rock vs Roman Reigns has reportedly been on the cards for a very long time. WWE have wanted to have the ‘Head of The Table’ take on ‘The Great One’ for years, and now at WrestleMania 38 it may be happening.

There are however potential stumbling blocks to the proposed mega dream match. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter this week noted that there are talks of Rock and Roman working in a tag match that also features The Usos.

With WWE wanting to continue The Bloodline/Family storyline with Reigns and The Usos, The Rock may be teaming with Jey Uso and Roman teaming with Jimmy Uso, or even vice versa.

Concessions may have to be made with The Rock being such a massive movie star, and if that means putting him in a tag team match at WrestleMania? That’s better than not having Dwayne Johnson not on the card.

“Obviously the singles match is the preferred match but any involvement of Rock is preferred over him not doing the show, because at 49, the idea of him coming back would lessen each year because he doesn’t need it, but he always has a soft spot in his heart for wrestling and family but he’s also not going to do it if he’s going to look bad because I don’t think he wants that Undertaker-Goldberg moment.”

The preferred route is to still have a singles match between Roman Reigns and The Rock, but if WWE are not able to make this work for insurance reasons then a tag bout is there as a fall back if needed.

Roman Reigns is set to defend his Universal Championship this Sunday against WWE Hall of Famer Edge. Here’s the full card for WWE’s Money In The Bank 2021:
