The Special Counsel to Roman Reigns, Paul Heyman has discussed his feelings on the rumours of a potential showdown between his client and The Rock.
At SummerSlam 2020 Roman Reigns returned to WWE with a whole new attitude that has seen him ascend to the very top of the entire industry. Aligned with Paul Heyman and his cousins The Usos, Reigns has survived challenger after challenger and rules Friday Night SmackDown as WWE Universal Champion.
Paul Heyman has spoken to Inside The Ropes’ Kenny McIntosh for issue 10 of Inside The Ropes magazine. Heyman addressed the clamour from fans that are desperate to see Reigns face his cousin The Rock to see who really is The Head Of The Table:
“Well, you ask multiple questions in one diatribe, so I’ll try to answer them as succinctly as possible. One, Rock schmock. Who doesn’t want to main event WrestleMania against Roman Reigns? Anybody who says they wouldn’t be interested in a WrestleMania main event is lying to you. Anybody who suggests they wouldn’t be interested in the WrestleMania main event against Roman Reigns is lying to you.”
“Roman Reigns is the most dominant WrestleMania main eventer in history. And Rock is just one of many people who are clamouring to step into the ring with Roman Reigns at any time, especially at WrestleMania.”
Fans of SmackDown have already seen both of Reigns’ other cousins The Usos come round to the family way of thinking as they have aligned themselves with Reigns. With The Bloodline and Heyman having a place at the table, is there room for The Rock?
“As for whether The Rock is a member of the table? I serve as Special Counsel to the Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns. That is not a subject Roman Reigns wishes to address publicly at this time, either in The Rock’s favour or to The Rock’s detriment, because The Rock may not be welcome at our table. Roman Reigns will let you know when it’s appropriate for Roman Reigns to let you know.”
With wrestling fans no doubt hoping for one final send-off for The Most Electrifying Man In All Of Entertainment, Heyman issued a stark warning for the world’s biggest movie star:
“If The Rock steps into the ring with Roman Reigns at any time, let alone at WrestleMania, that will be The Rock’s farewell, whether The Rock wants it to be or not.”
