'Young Rock' teases The Rock vs. Roman Reigns WWE WrestleMania match

WWE is said to be hopeful that Rock vs. Roman will take place at WrestleMania 39.

A future WrestleMania match between The Rock and Roman Reigns was teased during a scene on this week's episode of "Young Rock."

The sixth episode of the show's second season aired on Tuesday night. During the program, Rock was just beginning his wrestling training with his father, Rocky Johnson, at the time. He's later shown with his family watching Yokozuna (Rodney Anoaʻi) wrestle at the Royal Rumble on television. A young Joe Anoaʻi (Roman Reigns) is watching the event as well. Joe jumps on Rock's shoulders and asks for someone to give him a Samoan Drop. When no one responds, he asks them all to "acknowledge" him.  

Joe pleads with his cousin to wrestle him in the living room but Rock tells him, "The world's not ready. A match that big can only happen at WrestleMania." 

It was reported in the February 7, 2022 edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE is hopeful that The Rock vs. Roman Reigns will take place at WrestleMania 39. 

"The idea is to lead to the biggest WrestleMania ever in 2023 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA, with Reigns vs. The Rock and Becky Lynch vs. Rousey," Dave Meltzer wrote regarding the build-up to WrestleMania 39. "Of course a million things may happen between then and now and with Dwayne Johnson’s schedule, it may not be possible."
