Roman Reigns has made himself at home after making a smooth transition since his return. The Big Dog had feuds with the likes of Drew McIntyre and Shane McMahon which culminated in a tag-team bout at Extreme Rules with The Undertaker serving as a partner for Reigns.
The No Holds Barred match which took place at Philadelphia saw Roman Reigns and The Undertaker walk away with a victory. This marked Undertaker’s first match since his botched encounter against Goldberg in Saudi Arabia.
Reigns was asked about the important factor in teaming up with The Phenom when he was interviewed by Complex recently. He said:
“The most important thing for me was to make sure he was feeling it out there,” Reigns said. “We were in Philly at Extreme Rules, whooping everyone’s a–. You could see that confidence and swagger come out that only ‘The Deadman’ can show in his own way. It was really nice to see that.”
The former champion also went on to state that he is doing much better in terms of health. He elaborated:
“I think I’m doing a little bit better actually,” Reigns stated. “Just because I’m much more focused on my health, I’m much more focused on me as an individual, and just making sure that I stay in a place where I can continue to help others. Before I took my leave, I got to the point where I strictly thought about my family, and was so focused on you gotta do this, you gotta be here. Take a break, are you kidding me? So now, I just listen to myself and I trust myself a lot more to know to have faith in the program. Sometimes you got to pull back, hit the brakes a little, reassess where you’re at, and then attack.
