Paul Heyman: It Will Be The Rock's Farewell If He Faces Roman Reigns At WWE WrestleMania
A warning from the Special Counsel
Paul Heyman has warned The Rock that stepping into the ring with Roman Reigns at WWE WrestleMania would be his 'farewell' from the company, whether he wants it to be or not.
Roman Reigns versus his cousin, The Rock, has been rumoured for a number of months, with speculation indicating that The Tribal Chief and The Great One will do battle at one of the upcoming WrestleManias in the next two years.
Further reports indicate that The Rock will be involved in some capacity at this year's Survivor Series, leading to the question of how he and the Universal Champion will interact if they come together.
Heyman says Reigns will address The Rock's place at the table when the time is right for Reigns to do so, but issued a warning that The Rock may be looking at his final ever wrestling match if he steps up to the The Head Of The Table.
Speaking with Kenny McIntosh for Inside The Ropes magazine, Heyman said: "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 clamouring to step into the ring with Roman Reigns at any time, especially at WrestleMania.
"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 favour 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.
"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."
