The Rock Vs. Roman Reigns Heavily Teased “Young Rock”

The dream bout between Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and WWE Legend The Rock was teased on Tuesday night's episode of Young Rock on NBC.

The episode was once again set in 1996 as a young Dwayne Johnson begins training under his father, WWE Hall of Famer Rocky Johnson. At one point, Johnson is seen watching the 1996 Royal Rumble alongside his parents, grandmother, The Iron Shiek and The Wild Samoans. This is followed by a young child jumping into the lap of Afa and Sika, just as WWE Hall of Famer Yokozuna hit a Samoan Drop on TV. The child then tries to get somebody in his family to hit him with a Samoan Drop, but doesn't get the desired response.


The young Tribal Chief then points to the camera and yells, "Acknowledge Me!"

Johnson, who is narrating the story in the year 2032, then points out that the kid's name is Joe [Anoa'i]. An infographic, as seen below, then pops on the screen listing out all of Reigns' accomplishments in the WWE.

Thereafter, a young Reigns tries to put Rock in a headlock, saying, "Come on Dewey, let's wrestle!"

In response, Johnson responds: "No, the world is not ready! A match that big can happen only at WrestleMania."

The potential Rock vs. Reigns bout was also teased on the WWE Evil episode based on The Tribal Chief earlier this week. You can watch a clip of the same below.

As noted earlier,Β The Rock vs. Roman Reigns is the current working idea to main event next year's WrestleMania 39 in Los Angeles, according to Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer.
