The Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns remains to be a top star of the company. He is currently having one of the most iconic title reigns in the company. The Bloodline leader has held the WWE Universal Championship for well over 1,000 days now, even unifying the title with the WWE Championship in that time. Ever since he started portraying the ‘Tribal Chief’ gimmick, he has been unstoppable.
There have been talks of The Rock finally facing Roman Reigns and ‘The Great One’ has revealed that at one point the bout was set to happen at WrestleMania 39.
On this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer theorized that Reigns’ entire Tribal Chief storyline apparently began for the sake of his eventual showdown with Johnson, with the idea being that Rock would argue that he, and not Reigns, was actually the rightful “Head of the Table.” He said it was created when “the long-term angle for the year was to lead to Reigns vs. Rock”.
Meltzer also wrote that the match will always be the priority for WrestleMania, and will always hinge on Johnson’s availability, scheduling, and decision (or not) to participate.
We will have to see if Roman Reigns and The Rock actually have a showdown.
