Paul Heyman was asked during the interview if The People’s champ sits on the Universal Champion’s table. Here’s what he said,
“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 clamoring to step into the ring with Roman Reigns at any time, especially at WrestleMania.”
On asked whether The Rock sits as a member of the Table headed by Roman Reigns, Heyman said
“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 favor 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.”
WWE News: Heyman said a match against Roman for The Rock would be the latter’s last
Heyman is known for his big mouth, and in the interview, he didn’t refrain from saying that a potential match against the Universal Champion Roman Reigns would be The Great One’s last.
“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.”
WWE News: Will The Rock finally return to WWE and show the narcissist Universal Champion his actual place? Will the two cousins will ever collide in a Dream match? It remains interesting to see.
