WWE Legend Speculates About Fight Between The Rock And Roman Reigns At WrestleMania40
Wrestling legend and WWE Hall of Famer, Kurt Angle has set the internet on fire with his speculation about a potential showdown between former WWE Superstar, The Rock and current Universal Champion, Roman Reigns at WrestleMania40.
The Rivalry Between The Rock and Roman Reigns
The Rock and Roman Reigns have been constantly compared due to their Samoan heritage and their family connection. The Rock’s father Rocky Johnson was the head of the Anoa’i family, of which Roman Reigns is also a part. Reigns, sensing an opportunity for a showdown with The Great One, had reignited the family rivalry by calling The Rock out in a WWE promo in 2017, setting the stage for a WrestleMania match-up.
The Potential WrestleMania Match-up
Now, Kurt Angle has added fuel to the fire by speculating that the dream match-up between The Rock and Reigns could be in the works for WrestleMania40 in 2024. Angle believes that if The Rock is ever to make a return to WWE, it will be for a match with Reigns since he is the biggest star in the company at present and The Rock has stated in the past that he would only return to the ring for a match that would add value to the company.
The match would be a clash of two Samoan dynasties, The Rock representing the Anoa’i family and Reigns representing the Samoan Dynasty, which includes The Usos and their father, Rikishi. The potential bout would be the first time that two members of The Anoa’i family have ever main-evented a WrestleMania event.
The Rock’s Possible Return To The Ring
The Rock had previously indicated that he would be open to a return to WWE at some point in the future and had expressed an interest in facing Roman Reigns in a singles match. However, his busy Hollywood schedule has prevented him from making a full-time comeback to the squared circle.
Earlier this year, Reigns had revealed that he had the opportunity to secure a match with The Rock for WrestleMania37, but he had turned it down since he did not want to risk his position as the Universal Champion. However, he did not close the door on a future match with The Rock.
The potential WrestleMania match-up between The Rock and Roman Reigns has been a topic of discussion among wrestling fans for years now. The speculation from Kurt Angle has now added more fuel to the fire and has reignited the interest in the potential blockbuster bout between two of the biggest Samoan wrestlers in the industry.
