Prior to his match with John Cena, Roman Reigns was interviewed by CBS Sports’ In This Corner podcast. Below are some of the highlights from his interview:
Talking about the malfunction at a recent Raw episode where his zipper brokedown and John Cena masterfully played it in his promo, Roman said that it broke just two minutes before he went to the ring:
“The funny thing is, my zipper literally broke like two minutes before I was walking out. Usually I do a last-minute check. I actually pushed right through it. The actual zipper handle popped off, and once that happens, you have to go out there in two minutes. It’s not like I’m just wearing trunks or something. I’ve got blousing straps at the bottom, and I would have to take everything off in order to get new pants on.”
Continuing on the topic, he also commented on his relationship with Cena and said that they are not close friends by any means and they are truly competing with each other:
“I’ll be completely honest: Me and John have always been cordial, but I would not say we are close friends by any means. There is a business respect, but I think that’s what makes this so special that we’re truly competing against each other and I think people see that.”
Apart from this Roman Reigns also said that his mic skills have improved in his feud with the Leader of Cenation.
