Paul Heyman has quickly made a name for himself once again in the WWE, as he’s become the new manager for WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns. Heyman recently spoke with the New York Post, where he spoke briefly about Reigns’ popularity, revealing that a ton of legendary figures in the wrestling world are now looking to face off against the Big Dog, including The Rock.
“Right now there is no one in this industry that is on Roman Reigns’ level and The Rock recognizes it or he would never have been the first person to float the idea (of a match). The Rock floated this idea. Roman Reigns didn’t even have to mention The Rock’s name,” he said. When asked about whether or not a match like this could happen, Heyman noted that not only does The Rock want it to happen, but that other people in WWE would be as well. “It’s clear that the Rock wants it to happen. And The Rock is not the only one, I might add. There’s a line. There is a list of phone calls for Vince McMahon to return of high-profile, WrestleMania, main-event legends that are just aching to get the rub from Roman Reigns at this moment.”
A match with one of wrestling’s greats would be huge for Reigns, and with The Rock being his family member, that would add even more stakes to what could go down as one of the best matches ever. Of course, we’ll have to wait to see what happens, and Reigns will have another family member to deal with in Jey Uso at Hell in a Cell.
