Roman Reigns is currently on cloud nine as he made his highly-awaited Hollywood debut as Luke Hobbs' (The Rock) brother Matteo in Hobbs & Shaw. Along with Dwayne Johnson and Roman, Hobbs & Shaw also stars Jason Statham, Idris Elba, Vanessa Kirby and Helen Mirren while Ryan Reynolds and Kevin Kart have cameo roles in the David Leitch directorial. We got to see the action side of Roman as he teamed up with The Rock and beat up the bad guys in their hometown, Samoa.

During the Hawaii press junket, Reigns did a segment of IGN comments, where he reacted to fans' comments about the wrestler. When one fan commented, "Roman Reigns & The Rock should both be in the MCU!!!," Roman was confused as to what the acronym stands for! When the interviewer clarified that the MCU stands for Marvel Cinematic Universe, the wrestler quipped, "I can't know every breakdown like that but I'm agreeing with you here. That sounds great too. I don't know if he can do that too."

Recently, Johnson tweeted that he was game for starring alongside Reynolds in Deadpool 3, when Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld endorsed him to play Garrison Kane. "Dearest Rob, thank you, amigo. It’s true, in @HobbsAndShaw, I have insanely outstanding chemistry with our familiar friend. Since you created the characters, how does one Garrison Kane get alone with one," The Rock tweeted.

Meanwhile, Hobbs & Shaw has successfully gone over $180 million at the global box-office and counting.
