The Rock vs. Roman Reigns At WrestleMania 37 In 2021?

The Rock In Talks With WWE, Has Demands That Must Be Met For WrestleMania 37 Match Against Roman Reigns

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has some very specific stipulations that must be met before he considers a return to the squared circle for a high-profile match for WWE at WrestleMania 37 in 2021.

The Hollywood big-shot has been the subject of a lot of rumors regarding a potential showdown against Roman Reigns, particularly after WWE began a long-term storyline with Reigns and his relatives, The Usos, fighting for the right to become “The Tribal Chief” and head of the family.

With the story being what it is, the scenario would be seamless and organic for a return of “The Great One,” as Johnson is the real-life cousin of Reigns, so it would be an easy transition for the company to make on television if The Rock’s acting schedule and other business commitments don’t conflict with the WrestleMania season time frame.

One of the stipulations that must be accommodated in some form-or-fashion before The Rock will consider a WWE return for a match at WrestleMania is that live fans must be included as part of the event presentation.

Basically, “The People’s Champion” is only willing to entertain the idea of returning to the ring if “The People” will be on hand to witness it happen.

Originally, next year’s WrestleMania 37 special event was advertised to emanate from the Los Angeles, California area, with the company holding a press event earlier this year to announce that WrestleMania 37 will be held at Hollywood Park and SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA., with WWE using the tag-line, “WrestleMania Is Going Hollywood.”

In October, reports surfaced that claimed WWE would be moving WrestleMania 37 from the L.A. area to Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, which was the originally intended location for WrestleMania 36 earlier this year before the Coronavirus / COVID-19 global pandemic forced the company to make drastic changes right before the advertised date of the show.

As a result, 2020 marked the first year in WWE history that WrestleMania was a special two-night event held at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, FL. without a crowd.

According to Ringside News, “there is zero discussion about The Rock vs. Roman Reigns” behind-the-scenes in WWE right now.

As always, Johnson’s schedule is jam-packed with acting and other business commitments, however, “never say never” in the world of professional wrestling and WWE, as The Rock and WWE Chairman Vince McMahon are reportedly in contact on a regular basis “in case” the situation preventing Johnson from the match changes.

WrestleMania 37 is scheduled to take place on Sunday, March 28, 2021.
