Roman Reigns says he's on board for a potential match against Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

The WWE Universal Champion, who's part of the Anoa'i family of professional wrestlers like Johnson, was asked about facing him while appearing on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Wednesday.

"I would, yes," Reigns said. "I don't know if he wants it ... that's kind of something we do in our family as far as sports entertainment, professional wrestling, WWE. This is our platform. This is our family business. I fought one of my cousins, the Usos, Jey Uso, about a year ago. And where better to kind of solve problems than in the squared circle?"

Wednesday marked the 25th anniversary of Johnson's WWE debut at Survivor Series. There have been rumors he could return at this year's Survivor Series pay-per-view on Sunday, though Reigns apparently hasn't heard anything about a possible appearance.

"I have not heard these rumors, and I would think I'm closer than anybody at this point," Reigns said. "So I don't know, it's not what I've heard. But I also debuted at Survivor Series as well, so there's a nice little tie-in there."
