Paul Heyman Responds To The Rock Wanting To Sit At The Head Of The Table

This past Monday night on WWE Raw, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson surprised fans when he showed up to trash-talk Jinder Mahal and lay the smackdown. Following his beatdown of the former WWE Champion, The Rock went about teasing fans with a simple question, “Should The Rock sit at the head of the table?” Of course, the tease begs another question: Is The Rock angling for the long-rumored match against his cousin, Undisputed WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns?

On tonight’s episode of WWE SmackDown, Reigns’ “wise man,” Paul Heyman, gave an official response to what The Rock had to say on Monday.

“The Rock name drops Roman Reigns because The Rock wants to sit at the head of the table,” he began. “To sit at the head of the table, one must be invited to a dinner of relevancy. The Rock has not been invited, nor will he be because The Rock is just like everybody else. He’s looking for a shortcut to the headlines. There’s only two ways in this world to guarantee going viral. One, date Taylor Swift, two, call out Roman Reigns.

“Roman Reigns wins a match, out comes John Cena. Roman Reigns wins a match, out comes Brock Lesnar. Roman Reigns beats Cody Rhodes, Cody Rhodes still talking about finishing his damn story. CM Punk comes back to WWE after ten years. Welcome back. CM Punk says he’s the OG Paul Heyman guy, which he is until I upgraded from best friend to advocate and upgraded from advocate to wise man.

“Tonight, Randy Orton, AJ Styles, and La Knight all fight for the privilege of getting smashed by Roman Reigns at the Royal Rumble, and the one man that wins tonight will be smashed by Roman Reigns at the Royal Rumble, the same way whoever opposes Roman Reigns in the main event of WrestleMania will be smashed by your Tribal Chief. Smashed by The Head of The Table. Smashed by the Undisputed Heavyweight Champion of The World because there’s not one man on the face of this planet that can beat Roman Reigns.”
