Once a very polarizing figure in WWE, similar to John Cena, Roman Reigns has had a tremendous 2019, returning to the ring after overcoming a leukemia diagnosis that took him off WWE TV in late 2018.

Since returning to WWE, Roman Reigns has become one of the biggest stars of the company and the SmackDown brand, and used his battle against leukemia to help inspire others and raise cancer and leukemia awareness as a Superstar on WWE TV.

As 2019 comes to an end, Roman Reigns currently finds himself in a feud against Baron Corbin, and no doubt The Big Dog's sights will be set on possibly winning the Royal Rumble match next year, and going on to headline WrestleMania 36 in Tampa.

Given the above, let's take a look at 5 Roman Reigns backstage stories every fan needs to know.

Roman Reigns and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson are famously cousins, which has led many fans to the conclusion that a Rock vs Reigns dream match would be an excellent addition to any WrestleMania card, but The Big Dog feels otherwise, recently stating that he would rather team up with The Rock at WrestleMania than face The Great One.

During a recent interview with TV Insider, Reigns discussed the possibility of facing The Rock at WrestleMania and said the match would have to be something the fans really want to see in order for it to happen.

"It would have to be something the fans are just overwhelming about," said Reigns. "They have to make it very clear this is the matchup they want. Then we have to take into account our family and the way that affects us and the way we’d tell our story."
