Logan Paul Wants WWE Title Match vs. The Rock at WrestleMania 39 If He Beats Reigns
Logan Paul is set to challenge Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Heavyweight Championship this Saturday at Crown Jewel, but he already has his next opponent in mind if he is victorious.
Paul was recently asked who he’d like to defend the title against at WrestleMania 39 in Los Angeles in April, and he didn’t hesitate to name one of the biggest stars in all of entertainment.
“Dwayne ‘The Rock Johnson’ baby,” Paul said in an interview with SportBible (h/t Jeremy Lambert of Fightful). “It has to be because we have a lot of history. We go back, and he’s larger than life, man. I like to go up against those kinds of personalities. So it has to be Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson at WrestleMania.”
The Rock has long been rumored to be a potential opponent for Reigns at WrestleMania 39. Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer reported in August that a match between the two Superstars is “100 percent the plan” for WWE’s main event on next year, but noted that it will only be possible if The Rock’s busy schedule allows it.
While nothing is official, fans will continue to dream of The Great One’s possible return to the wrestling ring. However, much like Paul’s chances of defeating Reigns on Saturday, it’s more likely that The Rock won’t be lacing up his boots again any time soon.
