Roman Reigns says he’s ready to fight The Rock… but only at Wrestlemania

Roman Reigns is the most hated man in wrestling today.

Not because he’s lacking as a performer, but because the fans don’t want to see this “picture perfect” wrestler be the guy at the very top.

Wrestling is after all about the underdogs and rebels and his story is just too storybook for them to get behind. Reigns is a former NCAA All-American at Georgia Tech who’s related to The Rock and could easily steal yo’ girl.

Add that with the fact that Vince McMahon has been trying to aggressively put him over on the fans for the past five years and you can see why all these fanboys get butt hurt when he keeps winning shit.

Still, nothing can stop his ascension to the top and after retiring The Undertaker at Wrestlemania 33 and most recently John Cena at No Mercy the question is, who’s next?

The answer is simple. It’s his cousin, The Rock.

In a recent interview with The Mirror, Roman spoke about his return to The Shield, his recent success despite all the haters, and a potential Wrestlemania moment that would shake the universe to its core.

“I can only see me and Rock going at WrestleMania. Not only because of his schedule, but just the level of that match and the level of superstar that he is and you know, where I’m trying to get. But we also have a deep family tie. We represent the same family tree and having the opportunity to represent our culture, there would obviously have to be a sit down and we would have to express how we feel and the light we want to do this in… because there’s a lot of people we represent watching. The last thing I want to do is make it confusing or anything like that.”

Of course The Rock is the busiest man in Hollywood and has his fair share of haters as well, but if this were to actually happen, it would be the main event of the decade.

The Rock is clearly still a beast but his last Wrestlemania match a few years ago against John Cena didn’t go so well and ended with an insane injury.

Still, this dude is ready for anything and the chance to go up against his cousin on the biggest stage of them all and quiet all the haters is gonna be an opportunity that he would likely not pass up.

Love him or hate him, Roman Reigns is still the man in the WWE

Before Roman Reigns won the 2015 Royal Rumble, fans were absolutely loving him.

But right after that fateful PPV, people started hating and booing him every time he came out. The reason for that was because the fans really wanted to see Daniel Bryan win the Rumble. Everyone lost it when their favorite underdog lost.

It didn’t help that his cousin, The Rock, tried to help put him over too.

Roman Reigns would then go on to face the beast Brock Lesnar for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at Wrestlemania and oh man, this fight had so much hype to it.

Many people said that it was one the best Wrestlemania matches of all time. Brock was dominating for the majority of the match, until Roman had a good 2 minutes of adrenaline where he started to make a comeback. However, in the blink of an eye, Brock catches him with an F-5.

At that point, they are both down… suddenly Seth Rollins’ music starts playing and everyone goes crazy. Seth cashes in his Money In The Bank and rushes the ring to pin Roman and become the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion of the world.

In 2016, Roman main-evented Wrestlemania for the second time in his career.

He went on to face Triple H. Since Seth Rollins stole his moment the year before, Roman finally had his moment by beating “The Game” for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

Then, for the third time in a row Roman main-evented Wrestlemania, this time facing The Undertaker. Roman was the guy who ended “The Dead Man.”

The following night on Monday night Raw, he got the loudest boos the WWE has ever witnessed.

Roman was just recently in a Fatal 4 Way match for the belt against Brock, Joe, and Braun.

The crowd thought Roman would win this one, so naturally they began booing.

But at the end Brock was able to retain his WWE Universal Championship belt.

The next night at Raw, John Cena made a surprise visit. John said he was there only to see Roman Reigns.

My guess is they are going to start a feud with Cena and Roman. Until then we’ll just have to wait and see the next time Roman gets a title shot.

Wrestling fans don’t like to be force fed their superstars, but let’s be honest there isn’t a physical specimen more impressive than Roman today.

When Pro Wrestling Insider named Roman the #1 wrestler in the world earlier this year, fans couldn’t wait to bash the publication. But realistically, PWI was speaking straight facts. This is Roman’s yard and the WWE needs him.
