The 36th annual WWE Royal Rumble is scheduled to take place tonight from the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. At the show, Roman Reigns will be defending his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Kevin Owens.
In the past several weeks, there was a rumor circulated that The Rock will make his return to WWE at Royal Rumble to set up a match against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39.
Later, it was reported that The Rock informed WWE management that he would not able to compete at WrestleMania due to his busy schedule.
Yesterday, Roman Reigns appeared on “The Tonight Show” to promote WWE Royal Rumble PLE. During the show, Reigns was asked about the possibility of facing The Rock.
“I believe he just came out with a statement saying that he’s not gonna be ready in time, which, that’s the face that everyone’s making, like, ‘Hold on! He trains every single day. He’s huge!’ In his defense, it’s one thing to train with weights, the bodybuilding, the look, the part… but, to be able to get in the ring and do a main event match, a championship match, it takes a lot of conditioning, it beats up your body.
So there’s more that goes into it than training in the weight room. It’s a professional athlete type of situation where you have to condition. He does two out of three things perfectly. His nutrition and weight training are on point, but you have to condition yourself, you gotta be ready to fall down.”H/T Sportskeeda
