The Rock addresses possible Roman Reigns WWE WrestleMania match


Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has addressed the possibility of facing Roman Reigns at WWE WrestleMania. 

In an interview with Andrew Freund of Dish Nation, The Rock stated that there was "no truth" to the rumor that he would face the WWE Universal Champion. In a similar interview with, Johnson did not rule out another match, but said that any in-ring scenario would have to make sense. 

"There is no truth to that right now. Possibly down the road. We'll see," Johnson told Freund. "We stay very close, myself and Roman Reigns."

In the interview, Johnson was asked a more direct question about whether or not he sees a WWE title reign in his future. 

"I don't know if i have another title run, considering I'm The People's Champion. I don't know if it's another title run," Johnson said. 

"Possibly, you know, there might be another match down the road. Just, it would have to make sense."

Johnson had praise for both Reigns and The Usos, as well as their Bloodline group. 

"I'm very close with Roman obviously, and we talk about this all the time. I encourage him to keep doing your thing, keep sharpening those skills. I think he's doing a great job with his promos, his execution, his in-ring work, it all continues to improve and grow," said Johnson. "Again, I'm very, very proud of him and I like everything he's doing. I like everything that The Usos are doing. I like what they're doing together," said Johnson. 

Johnson also said that Reigns is changing the wrestling business with his performances. 

"And that's always the best part, I think, about that world of professional wrestling, is that when someone gets anointed and given the ball to run, they either score a touchdown with it, or they don't. But then some not only score a touchdown with it, but then they begin to change the way the game is played. And in Roman's case, he's slowly doing that. You can start to read the tea leaves," Johnson said. 

"And we'll see down the road."

Johnson's comments came in a series of promotional interviews for his new film Red Notice. Red Notice is n select theaters now and premieres on Netflix on Friday, November 12.
