Meltzer further divulged Vince McMahon is hoping The Rock will finally make his long-awaited return to square off with his cousin.

The Rock has previously admitted he would be open to fighting Reigns at WrestleMania 39 in 2022.

Back in 2017, he listed Reigns among four wrestlers he would love to face in the ring.

“One would be Triple H, The Game. The other would be The Beast Brock Lesnar," he said.
“The other one would be a guy that actually just needs my foot in his ***, Roman Reigns. Yeah," he added.

On his part, Reigns has as well flirted with the idea, arguing "some magic would be made" if he had the chance to battle The Rock.
