The Rock is avoiding a match with Brock Lesnar, according to the Beast's manager Paul Heyman.

The duo are heavily considered as two of the biggest names in World Wrestling Entertainment, with both of them enjoying success inside the squared circle, and also outside of it.

After leaving WWE, The Rock went on to become a famous, and very successful, Hollywood actor, whilst Lesnar conquered the octagon in UFC.

However, both of them keep ties with WWE and both make sporadic appearances every so often, with Lesnar becoming more and more of a frequent visitor.

Lesnar has been in several storylines over the past few years, whilst The Rock has stuck to brief WrestleMania cameos ever since his feuds with John Cena and CM Punk.

In fact, The Brahma Bull appeared at this year's WrestleMania and defeated Erick Rowan in record-breaking time, before clearing out Bray Wyatt with the help of long-time rival Cena.

As for Lesnar, he's becoming more of a regular in the WWE following his feuds with Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, The Undertaker, Roman Reigns, and most recently, Randy Orton.

He's successfully conquered all of them, taking them to Suplex City along the way, but one man he hasn't gone toe-to-toe with recently is The Rock.

Despite there being plans for the two to face off at a WrestleMania a couple of years ago, the match never happened, and Heyman thinks he knows why.

Speaking to The Sun, Heyman and Lesnar were promoting the new 2k wrestling game, and they were asked about whether Brock would like to face The Rock one more time.

In response, Heyman said: "Notice how The Rock picks fights with Bray Wyatt, or fights with Rusev and John Cena? Notice how The Rock doesn't pick a fight with Brock Lesnar? Is Brock Lesnar ready for The Rock? Is The Rock ready for Brock Lesnar?"

The duo were then asked whether Rock vs Brock would sell out WrestleMania, and Heyman was seemingly offended by that question.

He replied: "I find it insulting that you would say that in front of Brock. I think Brock Lesnar against anyone is an automatic sell-out.

"Brock does not wrestle 52 Monday's a year on Monday Night Raw, he does not come to your home town every week, his appearances are rare. They are unique and extraordinary.

"Which is why, whenever Brock Lesnar appears it is a rare and unique opportunity for the paying customer to see the greatest living athlete in the history of WWE appear live in an extraordinary event that only Brock Lesnar can deliver on.

"This is why he is the greatest box office attraction."
