Roman Reigns Talks Advice He’s Received from Goldberg, Preferring Bret Hart Over Shawn Michales, More

Roman Reigns

Former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns was recently interviewed on the Cheap Heat podcast. You can check out some highlights here:

On getting advice from Goldberg:

“We had one little brief instance where he mentioned a couple different ideas that he [has] had that he just didn’t get to use back in his day. But it seems like his days aren’t numbered. He seems like he’s doing well and thriving, so I’m sure he’s going to have an opportunity to use [the ideas]. I think he’s probably regretting giving me ideas, but I believe everybody does things their way. I like the level I take my performance. I like my athleticism. I like the way I perform my moves. If you don’t, then don’t watch. It’s that simple. But, either way, I like the difference in the spears. I think it’s important that there are a variety of different looks and different characters and just different situations. And that’s what makes the WWE special, is that it’s a circus.”

On preferring Bret Hart over Shawn Michaels:

“I’m a Bret guy. Yeah, I’m a Bret guy. I was a little boy whenever they were around. How could you pick the guy that has assless chaps on and he’s running around? Do you know what I mean? Like, he [has] got his butt out. Bret was legit, like, a competitor, and he looked similar to me, so I don’t know.”

On getting Hart’s sunglasses as a kid:

“I was a huge Bret fan. And everything he did, just the work he put in, and his character, the integrity that he had, what he stood for. He just seemed like a solid guy and he had awesome glasses. And I wanted to be that kid in the front row that got them and I never was. But thank God, my cousin was Yokozuna, so I cheated and he got it for me. Okay, guys? Whatever.”

    Okay. I was a Roman fan n the beginning but he never evolved and never improved. Now for him to say he likes his ways and to his fans “if you dont like dont watch” its apparent Reigns became a little arrogant because of how fond the leaders if wwe r of him. We give him his paycheck.
