Roman Reigns Joins Cast of HOBBS AND SHAW as announced by The Rock
Roman Reigns has been out of the WWE for some time now because his leukemia suddenly resurfaced. He left the company with hopes or returning soon. And now the former WWE Unuversal Champion has been announced as a part of the film HOBBS AND SHAW.
Reigns will reportedly play the role of Hobbs’ (presumably) younger brother.
Roman Reigns aka the Big Dog looks like he would soon be making Hollywood his yard. And the announcement was done by none other than his cousin Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock.
Here’s what the Rock had to say about the casting:
The brothers’ roar.
A lil’ HOBBS & SHAW exclusive.
Good times droppin’ sweat and spillin’ blood with my family, @RomanReigns who’ll be playing my brother in our FAST & FURIOUS UNIVERSE.
I’m very proud of his focus, effort and authentic performance in our movie for his very first time on film.
I’m also very grateful to spend this quality time with my cousin here in the islands as he takes life one day at a time to recover from leukemia.
His perseverance and humility battling this challenge has inspired our entire family as well as millions around the world in our beloved @WWE Universe.
Can’t wait to see the “Big Dog” return back to the ring – his positive & focused mindset to return is straight up next level.
Til’ then, this sacred Samoan 🇼🇸 ground you stand on is nourished with our ancestors blood.
Today, we nourish it with yours.
I like how they added Roman Reigns to the cast to play a brother. Just hoping he can superman punch somebody in his scenes. Or even just do a generic spear. In reality the two are cousins. Not biologically though but through blood compact between their grandfathers.
Also did you know that The Rock is poised to become a high chief? It doesnt have that much sway as it used to but its still a big thing.
HOBBS AND SHAW will star Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham and will be a spinoff from the Fast and Furious film franchise.
Dwayne reprises his role as Hobbs and the same goes for Statham. Rumors suggest that they will be going after Charlize Theron’s character from the last Fast and Furious movie.
More coming soon. Please subscribe to the mailing list for more updates on the film.
