However, Roman Reigns’ heel turn brought him a lot of attention from the fans as they appreciated his character. Although WWE pushed him a lot in recent years, he gathered genuine support from the fans only after his heel turn.

Since Reigns reclaimed his Universal Championship, the WWE Universe witnessed a lot of exciting matches with new opponents. It’s quite clear that Roman Reigns turned out to be one of the biggest assets to WWE. And one match that the WWE Universe has desperately wanted to see is between Roman Reigns and the People’s Champion, The Rock.

Recently, Hall of Famer Mark Henry featured in Busted Open Radio, where he mentioned Roman Reigns and The Rock. He put forth his opinion on the biggest dream match in WWE history. He said, “There’s only one thing that can be changed and it’s really not even a change. It’s only one thing that can happen that can take it out of this world and make it and that’s for The Rock to come and say, ‘No, you don’t run the family. I run the family’.”

“If that was to happen it would be the biggest thing to happen in pro wrestling. Because this is already historically [a] top tier story without The Rock. You add The Rock, man you can put it right up there with [The Mega Powers].” [H/t SE Scoops]

The Mega Powers was the tag team comprising Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage, which eventually led to their dispute.

Moreover, Mark Henry added that The People’s Champ The Rock has already made epic matches, fighting with the likes of Stone Cold Steve Austin. It was one of the greatest feuds of all time between The Brahma Bull and The Texas Rattlesnake.

Could fans see the dream match between Roman Reigns and The Rock?

Roman Reigns’ heel character made a significant impact on the SmackDown roster. He is the longest-reigning Universal Champion dethroning Brock Lesnar’s 504 days run.

On the other side, The Rock has become one of the biggest personalities in Hollywood, bound with various movie projects and tight schedules. It is likely that the WWE will need to book him early so that they could bring him back for the match.

Both men have already established a successful wrestling career and fans are excited to witness the biggest showdown between The Rock and Roman Reigns, if it were to happen. At the Royal Rumble, Roman Reigns will defend his Universal title against his former Shield brother Seth Rollins.
