There’d all the time be the talk over who ought to win, however Dwayne – who hasn’t wrestled a full match since shedding to John Cena at WrestleMania 29 – has a good suggestion about how it could pan out.
He added: ‘I understand how that dialog goes. “Hear, right here’s what we’re pondering. Roman beats you now at this WrestleMania. However, pay attention, earlier than you guys say something. Then on the subsequent one…that’s when…”
‘However you realize what, the reality is, I’d be honoured not solely to share the ring with Roman and to return to the WWE. However in fact, I’d be honoured to have him increase his hand in that one.’
