Roman Reigns v The Rock: Hugely exciting update on WWE's plans for major match

The Rock v Roman Reigns is happening in 2023

WWE’s plan for the main event of next year’s WrestleMania remains Roman Reigns vs The Rock – if everything falls into place. 

Roman’s all-conquering reign remains the focus of WWE right now and there have been speculation for months now that it is all leading to a clash against his cousin, The Rock at next year’s WrestleMania in Hollywood. 

Previous reports suggest that WWE had been waiting for the 2023 event, as it’s being hosted in LA as the setting for this titanic clash and according to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio it remains the plan, via WrestleTalk

“It’s the plan. It’s 100% the plan for this year (WrestleMania 39). But the idea is, it’s the plan if he can do it. 

We’re still months away, months and months away. So many opportunities and things like that may come up that are far more important than WrestleMania.”

Last week Paul Heyman commented on the possibility of the match, but suggesting that Roman Reigns would let the People’s Champ challenge the Tribal Chief for the gold, fuelling speculation that a match is very near to being a reality. 

The Rock hasn’t had a full wrestling match – discounting his six-second win over Erick Rowan at WrestleMania 32 – since he faced John Cena at WrestleMania 29 in 2014. 

Many believe that if we do see him step back between the ropes next April, it could be the Brahma Bull’s last WWE outing and it would be combined with an induction into the WWE Hall of Fame. 

Roman Reigns will next defend his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Drew McIntyre at next month’s Clash at the Castle in Cardiff. Although there have been some reports suggesting that Karrion Kross could now also be involved after he made a shocking comeback to WWE on Friday Night Smackdown last week.
