Stephanie McMahon adds weight to call for Rock v Roman match in WWE

Stephanie McMahon is the latest name to back a WWE programme between Universal Champion Roman Reigns and Hollywood star The Rock.

WWE's Chief Brand Officer rarely weighs in with comments about the current on-screen product, but with clamour building for a clash between former wrestler turned hollywood megastar The Rock and Reigns, Steph admitted to being keen.

She told TMZ:

“It would be a phenomenal story to find out who truly sits at the head of the table. When you think about The Rock and his family, and Roman Reigns and his family - just the heritage and the lineage throughout our business, of that family, right?
"[It's a] Huge story and I do hope we see it play out one day.”

While nothing is confirmed as yet, it's not thought that The Rock and Reigns are due to tangle at this year's Mania, but it's hoped a meeting could be held further down the line - WrestleMania comes from Hollywood in two years' time.
