As previously noted, Paul Heyman did a rare interview with Ariel Helwani this week to talk about Brock Lesnar, his exit as Executive Director of Raw, The Rock, Roman Reigns and other topics.
In regards to Reigns vs. Rock, Heyman said that it was Rock who was bringing up Reigns and not the other way around. The Rock said a few weeks ago that he would love to put over his cousin at WrestleMania.
It was noted in the latest Wrestling Observer that the roadblock that could keep the match from happening is related to insurance tied to work he has coming up.
Since Rock’s match with Cena a few years ago, movie insurance issues have been a factor in why he hasn’t wrestled since the movie companies don’t want to take the risk of having him getting injured and possibly holding up production.
Meltzer noted that since the Cena matches there have been pitches for matches between Rock and Triple H in a singles match, a singles match against Lesnar and a match where he would have teamed up with Ronda Rousey against Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.
