Roman Reigns Will Appear In The Rock's "Hobbs & Shaw" Film

According to The Rock's Instagram post (linked in the WWE article above) Roman will be appearing as the brother of Hobbs (played by The Rock).

The most interesting aspect of The Rock's Instagram post is this middle section...
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.

Sounds like yet another positive update for The Big Dog, and I will be very interested to see how he comes off on the big screen in what I assume will be a small role.

Roman himself took to what is his brand new Instagram (@romanreigns) to discuss the film.

Part of that statement says...
All of your outreach and support has been a blessing and it’s only pushed me to get back in the ring as soon as possible.

But until then...I’m excited for this movie to premiere this summer, our culture and mana in this film is strong!
As an aside, I cannot believe they used THAT pic of The Rock and Roman in the WWE Tweet. That was when they were in the ring after The Rock assisted Roman in winning the 2015 Royal Rumble.

An infamous moment for both of them.

Anyhow, this all feels like a positive update to me. If nothing else, it feels like Roman/Joe is happy and doing well.
