Roman Reigns appeared for an interview with Ryan Satin of FOX Sports where he discussed about a potential match with his cousin The Rock. Roman said, “We’ll go to Hollywood for WrestleMania 39, and I think it just makes sense.”

“He’s the biggest box office attraction for the big screen. So, to be able to take that and match it up with the biggest box office attraction in sports entertainment, I think some magic would be made,” Roman continued.

“To be able to take that and match it up with the biggest box office attraction in sports entertainment, within the wrestling ring, I think some magic would be made.”

Roman also praised The Rock for the way he has kept himself fit for peak performance, without which this match would not have been talked about.

“But, none of this would be possible if Dwayne wasn’t in great shape, you know what I mean? If he was just out there playing dad roles and was fat and did not take it. But, he busts his ass every single day. Every single week you see these new workout videos coming and he’s just clanging and banging, doing his thing, lifting all weights.
We wouldn’t be able to step foot in the ring together if he wasn’t in phenomenal shape and if he didn’t take care of himself and he didn’t keep himself prepared for peak performance.
So, hats off to him. That’s motivating stuff for everybody, I think. I think that’s why he’s on the level that he is. People tap into him for inspiration. It’s encouraging for someone like me, or anybody in my line of work, to have that longevity, to still have that physical capability to be healthy, to continue to grow physically and emotionally as a person. It’s inspiring to see.”

The Rock vs Roman Reigns match has been rumored for a long time now. WWE previously included the match in a List This! episode for WrestleMania 36. Later, when Roman’s storyline with his cousin Jey Uso was ongoing, several fans suspected that the Rock be a potential opponent for Roman due to the family storyline.
