For months now, even years, a feud and a match has been built around the figure of Roman Reigns that at this point we do not know if they will ever arrive, those against his elder cousin, a planetary star, who has become the highest paid actor of Holywood: The Rock.
Last month Ringside News reported that no one would ever be asked to work on the dream match between Reigns and The Rock again, a sign that the idea was never even mentioned in WWE. It is even said that we could see The Rock much sooner, at the Survivor Series that are getting closer and closer this month, on the anniversary of his debut, because this year is 25 years.
Interviewed by Andrew Freund of Dish Nation, the Hollywood actor talked about his new film Red Notice, but also about the rumors that want it in the next edition of Wrestlemania in Dallas, Texas, in the same stadium as Wrestlemania 32.
Obviously his opponent would be the Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns, with The Rock who may actually be the only one to defeat the man who also managed to beat John Cena while continuing his reign as universal champion. "Andrew, you've known me for a long time, I can tell you there's nothing real right now.
Maybe along the way, we'll see," Dwayne Johnson said. "We stay very close, Roman Reigns and I, and I am very happy, very proud of the work he is doing, as well as the USA, my other family members. So those kids will continue to do what they are doing, and we will see.
along the road." So for now he has denied all the rumors that have been circulating for some time now, with Reigns recently also saying about him: “Yes, that is a dream for many fans Roman Reigns vs The Rock. Not a dream for me, do you know what I mean? I often happen with Dwayne and John Cena too.
These guys are doing very well for themselves. There is no doubt about that, so I don't know."
Here are the WWE layoffs: Karrion Kross, Eva Marie, Keith Lee, Nia Jax
WWE has struck another long list of layoffs, hitting many prominent wrestlers and many of the crowd's favorites.
The relentless trend of releases, which began in April of this year, seems to have no end, not even after the return of the public to the arenas and stadiums and even after the return of the federation to Saudi Arabia. Leaving the Stamford company on this occasion are names of the highest caliber, some of whom had just made their debut on the main roster or had just received a push or a new character.
Among the most striking names we certainly find those of Karrion Kross (with Scarlett) and Keith Lee, who had just been nicknamed Bearcat. The women's division also loses important pieces such as Nia Jax and Eva Marie, who the WWE has never lacked television time.
Also surprising is the dismissal of B-Fab, which together with Hit Row had just made its first appearance on SmackDown. The following is the list of Raw and SmackDown Superstars fired tonight: Keith Lee
Karrion Kross and Scarlett
Lucha House Party (Gran Metalik and Lince Dorado)
Harry Smith The third WWE brand has lost important pieces, especially at the level of the women's division.
The most high-sounding name is certainly that of Ember Moon, who has collected an NXT Women's Championship and an NXT Tag Team Championship. Franky Monet (hired this year) was also fired despite her leading role on the shows and former couple champion Oney Lorcan, who revealed that he had asked for release long ago.

According to Sean Ross, the Superstars who were fired received an email from John Laurinaitis stating the usual budget cuts as the reason for the release.
It is currently unknown whether WWE will proceed with further layoffs in the next few hours. Stay tuned to WorldWrestling.it for all the updates on the reasons for the choices of these names.
