Paul Heyman: “We can speculate all we want about Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson stepping into the ring with Roman Reigns. It’s masturbatory fantasies.”

Paul Heyman spoke with Sportskeeda this week to discuss Drew McIntyre and whether or now we might see Roman Reigns have a match against The Rock.

Paul Heyman talking about Drew McIntyre:

“McIntyre is very capable. You’re only as great as the challengers that you turn back. The problem for Drew McIntyre, and I said this to Roman Reigns several years ago on Monday Night Raw, and that was during a period in which he was ‘The Big Dog’, and had to achieve more, by his own admission, to become the Tribal Chief.”

“Drew McIntyre is the right guy, in the right place, at the wrong time, because any other time in history, Drew McIntyre would wipe out the entire division. Drew McIntyre would most likely unify the heavyweight championships. Drew McIntyre would have a chance to go down as the greatest of all time, no doubt,” Heyman said.

“This is Roman Reigns’ era. We live in the time of the Tribal Chief. So Drew McIntyre is, in my opinion, the most amazing talent on the face of the planet, but there’s an asterisk, and that asterisk denotes with the exception of Roman Reigns.”

“That’s the problem for Drew McIntyre. Against anybody else, my goodness, there’s no stopping Drew McIntyre, which means Roman Reigns has to be at his absolute best. Because one mistake, one slip up against Drew McIntyre and you get kicked right in the face with a Claymore and you will get pinned. So we don’t take Drew McIntyre lightly. He’s a danger. He’s a threat. He’s a worthy opponent for the Tribal Chief, and we’re very cognizant of the fact,” he continued.

Heyman on whether we are going to see Roman Reigns vs The Rock:

“That’s up to Dwayne Johnson. If Dwayne Johnson wants to be embarrassed and humiliated and smashed in front of the entire world against Roman Reigns, he’s welcome to step in against the Tribal Chief. My goodness, what box office that would be. Imagine the box office that could be driven by Roman Reigns versus Dwayne The Rock Johnson in which you get to see the Tribal Chief smash The Rock,” Heyman said.

“We can speculate all we want about Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson stepping into the ring with Roman Reigns. It’s masterbatory fantasies. Until there’s a piece of paper in front of us with Dwayne Johnson’s signature on it, then I know it’s real. Until then, it’s just fantasy.”

“Fantasy of Dwayne Johnson to come and get the rub from The Tribal Chief Roman Reigns. Fantasy of Dwayne Johnson, feeling the energy of 20, 30, 40, 50, or 100,000 people live cheering on as The Tribal Chief smashes The Rock. Fantasy of Dwayne Johnson stepping into the ring with the greatest of all time, Roman Reigns, then, and forever. Until he puts his name on a contract, it’s just fantasy.”
