The chances of ‘The Brahma Bull’ returning to WWE is bleak, however, Roman Reigns believes that if he was to return, it should be at WrestleMania 39. This is when the event is going Hollywood, and considering Johnson’s work as an actor, it’s the ideal event.

Unfortunately, there has been no update about his return to the ring from his side or WWE. It’s possible that he will not make a comeback if it requires him to commit to a long-term return.
