The two stars have shared a ring before, all the way back at a Royal Rumble event in 2015. During the Rumble match itself, Reigns was attacked by two members of The Authority. The Rock would make a surprise appearance to save Reigns from the beat down and allow Reigns to gain the victory and earn his opportunity to challenge Brock Lesnar in the main event of that years’ WrestleMania.
