In the fallout of the WrestleMania 38 main event, everyone has their eyes for the main event of WrestleMania 39 in Hollywood, Los Angeles.

Paul Heyman provokes Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to face Roman Reigns!

Some fans speculated that there’s a possibility of WWE doing something similar to The Rock vs. John Cena, which was set as the main event of WrestleMania one year before the show. However, Roman Reigns’ special counsel Paul Heyman noted that he isn’t a fan of setting up a WrestleMania match one year in advance between The Rock and Reigns.

While speaking to Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour, Paul Heyman discussed the possibility of The Brahma Bull vs. The Tribal Chief.


Heyman said, “Why, why would you do it? Because then you’re telling everybody that for the next 364 days, nothing matters until The Rock.”

“If Dwayne Johnson wants to step up to Roman Reigns, then Dwayne Johnson should step up to Roman Reigns, and we’ll set the match, and we’ll go for it. But to go from a year from now? That’s a long time,” Paul Heyman added.

According to Heyman, if the company created a storyline for The Rock a year before, it would create chaos. Everyone knows that Dwayne Johnson is a massive attraction to the WWE.

Is Paul Heyman right with his prediction?

So Paul Heyman imagines that exciting The Rock vs. Roman Reigns will steal the thunder of others until The Brahma Bull appears. Being a wise man to Reigns, Heyman raised an interesting point.

Heyman continued, “A lot can happen in a year. What if I say to Roman Reigns, ‘Take 30 days off and do a movie just to show Dwayne Johnson, who’s a bigger box office attraction in the film.’ Which would be Roman Reigns, and Roman Reigns is a better actor than Dwayne Johnson, to be blunt. There’s a lot that can happen. You got a year.”
