The Rock says he’s open to a match with Roman Reigns, praises Vince McMahon

By Jason Powell, Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson answered fan questions on Instagram and was asked about a possible match with Roman Reigns. “I think anything is possible, sure, of course,” Johnson said. “I’m always open. And that’s the cool thing about professional wrestling is that there’s an adaptability to wrestling and you never say never in the world of pro wrestling.

“And you never say never with Vince McMahon, who has been one of my mentors in business for a very, very long time and a very, very close friend and confidant. So, yeah, you never say no. For something like that to happen, I think the venue would have to be right, I think the business model would have to be right (laughs). But I’m very close with Roman, that’s family to me, so we’ll see.”

Powell’s POV: Johnson laughing while talking about the business model was his way of saying the money has to be right. I didn’t get the impression that this is something in the works. Of course, if it was then I’m sure Johnson would want to keep it quiet. Nevertheless, it’s interesting that Johnson has yet to close the door on the possibility of having future matches despite his massive success in Hollywood.

  1. Sure struck me as being polite and not wanting to offend rather than having any active interest. I think he’d need to be blown away money-wise… I used to want to see this but I think it’d be a waste- unhelpful to RR.

    • I think you read it right. It would be far more interesting if they threw in the towel on Reigns as a babyface and went babyface Rock vs. heel Reigns. Seeing is believing.
