If WWE officials get their way, the dream match between Roman Reigns and The Rock will finally take place in eight months.

For several years now, many fans have called for WWE to run a match between the two cousins. Though he hasn't wrestled a match in six years

The Rock has made occasional appearances for WWE since leaving the promotion to embark on a successful career in Hollywood.

Though he announced his retirement from pro wrestling three years ago, The People's Champion has expressed interest in facing the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.

Previous reports have indicated that WWE wants to run this match. But The Rock's filming schedule, XFL duties and other factors make it difficult to book well in advance.
