Roman Reigns has been dominating WWE for a while now, especially after winning the Universal Championship in 2020. The Tribal Chief is close to completing 1000 days as the champion and is also the holder of the WWE Title, making him the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion. Despite his dominance in the ring, Reigns was still not shy of admitting that his cousin Dwayne Johnson is stronger than him.
The family members starred in the Fast and Furious spin-off Hobbs and Shaw alongside Jason Statham. The two form an unlikely team. Later in the film Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) is assisted by his brother Matteo Hobbs who is played by Reigns. The film was the first and only time Reigns and The Rock shared a screen at the same time in Hollywood.
A few years ago, during the promotion of the film with VT, The Tribal Chief, and Dwayne Johnson indulged in a game of ‘Who’s More Likely To, where the family members teamed up to take on Helen Mirren and Vanessa Kirby.
During the 1:24 mark of the video, the host asks who is more likely to win in an arm wrestling match among the teams. The team of Johnson and Reigns quickly answered that it would be the WWE legend. Roman Reigns then stated that his cousin had “big a*s” arms.
“It’s a big a*s arm man. I don’t know what he did out there in the world, but we don’t do that many curls on the island,” Roman Reigns said.
Dwayne Johnson will return as Hobbs in ‘FAST X’.

While The Rock continues to showcase his acting talents in Hollywood, most recently with the release of Fast X, Roman Reigns will be vying to add another title to his collection. The Tribal Chief is slated to team up with Solo Sikoa to take on Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens for the Undisputed Tag Team Championship.
Will Dwayne Johnson ever face Roman Reigns in WWE?
Ahead of WrestleMania 39, which took place in Hollywood this year, rumors were rife that Roman Reigns would be defending his world titles against Dwayne Johnson for the first time in a blockbuster. However, that did not come to fruition, as The Rock felt that he was not physically fit enough to partake in a match and go toe-to-toe against Reigns. This led to the main event becoming Cody Rhodes versus Roman Reigns.
Since a deadline for WrestleMania plans is coming, The Rock indicated he won’t have time to get into the shape he feels he needs to be in to do a main event match vs Roman Reigns, but kept the door open for something in the future.

However, when it comes to Dwayne Johnson, one can never say never. The Rock has hinted that he may be open to a return to the squared circle in the future but has remained shy of directly commenting on it.
Given how little he has been involved with wrestling, with his last coming at WrestleMania 32, and how busy he is with acting, it is unlikely that he will ever step foot in the ring again. Despite fans’ high hopes of a comeback, Dwayne Johnson is quite possibly done with wrestling.
