By 2016, WWE superstar Roman Reigns had become one of the top performers on World Wrestling Entertainment's talent roster. But it wasn't an easy road to stardom for Roman. Having to emerge from behind the larger-than-life shadow cast by his iconic cousin Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson made the journey more perilous than many realize.

Now, for the first time, meet the man behind the Roman Empire with this one-of-a-kind and completely unauthorized biography of Leati Joseph Anoa’i -- a man known to millions as Roman Reigns and to his closest family and friends simply as Joe.

Despite being the current WWE Champion, Roman's status as a future main-eventer remains in doubt. The reason? Many fans currently view Roman Reigns as a man who isn't being true to himself with his on-screen character. A better natural heel than face, Roman Reigns is still positioned as one of the WWE's leading babyface wrestlers. But with the gimmick simply not resonating, some are drawing natural comparisons between Reigns and The Rock -- a man who struggled to gain his footing in WWE until a major character transition had also taken place.

Featuring never before heard stories and insider observations, to sources claiming that Vince McMahon has already determined that The Rock and Roman Reigns will one day headline WrestleMania in a family feud of epic proportions, “Ready to Rock” chronicles Anoa’i's inspiring journey to the top and impressive fight to stay there.

The latest work by celebrated sports biographer Vince Russel is a must-read for fans of the WWE, Roman Reigns, and The Rock, featuring short excerpts from Michael Essany's bestselling work "Boots to Asses: An Unauthorized Look at How 'The Rock' Brought Team Bring It (and The WWE Back To Life)."
