Although it is unclear when Reigns, 38, will step back into the ring, the Tribal Chief is said to be keeping himself occupied by working on a major new film project. It is no secret that a number of professional wrestlers have made a successful transition into the entertainment industry; two such examples are Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and John Cena.

Roman Reigns’ Exciting New Project with Keke Palmer: A Threat to WWE Status?

The last time the former Undisputed WWE Universal Champion appeared on WWE television was following his defeat at WrestleMania 40: Sunday to Cody Rhodes. The defeat signaled the end of Roman Reigns’ incredible 1,316-day reign as champion and the start of a ‘new era’ in WWE, a term that has been used multiple times since WrestleMania

Although Reigns’ next appearance on WWE TV is unknown, it’s believed he is collaborating with Lauren ‘Keke’ Palmer on an unidentified film project. A photo of the handsome Reigns from a forthcoming flick was recently shared on the actress’ Instagram story (via X).

Reigns is no stranger to the acting world; in fact, he has experience with it from previous ventures. Along with working on multiple WWE Studios projects, Reigns made an appearance in Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw in 2019 with his cousin The Rock. In animated roles, he has also made numerous TV appearances.

While fans may be disappointed by Reigns’ potential exit from the WWE, a move to Hollywood could make him even more prominent. Besides, he could definitely succeed in the entertainment industry because of his phenomenal physique and acting skills.

Even Triple H, one of the WWE’s top executives, has hinted at a new chapter for Roman Reigns after his recent WrestleMania loss. Could this mean that the Samoan powerhouse is ready to make the jump to acting and pursue a career beyond the wrestling ring?

If you are on the same path as your famous cousin, who also happens to be the world’s biggest actor, there will be whispers that you will end up exactly like him. Even though Roman Reigns has to live in that shadow, he appears content with it because he shares the same objective. In 2015, he was asked if he wanted to be an actor like Dwayne Johnson during an interview with Extra Butter.

Reigns grinned and said, “I think so”, without even thinking twice. The father of five further added:

“You can’t be a wrestler your whole career. Just hitting that mat every single night takes its toll, so you gotta have a game plan for after lacing up the boots.”

That answer has not changed over time. Reigns appears to be more committed than ever to taking the route that The Rock, John Cena, and Dave Bautista have already started. He only said, “That is something I want to dabble in and gain more experience in”, on ESPN’s The Michael Kay Show, not so lately. 

Reigns is more than your average one-dimensional action star. He is much more competent. John Cena has discovered his niche in comedic roles. And there is no denying that Reigns is capable of carrying a comedy. More classic roles are what Dave Bautista pursues. Reigns could do that as well because his best work is displayed in his more subdued backstage moments.

Well, Tribal Chief is the face of WWE and pro wrestling in general at the moment, for the foreseeable future, and as long as he desires it. But when he settles, he wants more and it is time to move to Hollywood, that is when things really get interesting. Reigns has everything it takes to become a massive megastar—a family connection, name accreditation, appeal, charisma, acting range, and, of course, a vigorous desire to succeed. 

But perhaps the most substantial advantage of an acting career for Reigns would be the opportunity to broaden his fan base and connect with audiences, on a more personal level. He could inspire and entertain millions of fans through the power of film and television, leaving a legacy that goes far beyond the wrestling ring. Acknowledge that…
