Roman Reigns Talks WrestleMania Main Event, Paying Attention to Critics, Doing Movies, More

– Roman Reigns recently spoke with promote Sunday’s WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view. Below are some highlights:



Married life:
It’s good, it’s good. I’ve been with my wife for quite some time, damn near a decade so I managed to finally take the final step.

Preparing for the Royal Rumble:
There’s not too much preparation. It’s a once a year thing. You just got to make sure your wind is up, your cardio is good, your awareness and your peripheral vision is working because like you said, its madness, bodies are flying everywhere and you can get eliminated by anybody. There’s so many people that can gather up in the ring. You turn your back on one guy and the next thing you know you’re head over heels and you’re on the floor.

Who he wants to face for the WWE World Heavyweight Title at WrestleMania 31:
I’m willing to take on any three of those guys [Brock Lesnar, John Cena, Seth Rollins]. They’re obviously all-different match-ups. But I think I have a certain skill set that allows me to compete any shape or size or skill set so I think I have enough explosive raw power to compete with John and Brock and I have enough agility and speed and strength to compete with Seth so either way you cut it, I think it will be a great match-up. If I had to, I’d step in the ring with all three of those guys. I’m not scared of anybody.

Possibly doing movies:
I haven’t talked to anybody about it. I don’t know enough to see if I’ve been in discussion. I’ve loved to be a part of anything, having an opportunity to entertain, to be a part of a film, or just continue to do what I’m doing, I’m so happy so just making town after town, doing my thing, but if I have that opportunity to star in a film or be an extra, I don’t care, its all a learning experience for me. If that comes up, I would definitely jump on the opportunity.

If he pays attention to critics and if he finds any of it amusing:
[Laughs] Yeah, I think its hard not to pay attention these days with all of the social media networks and all of the different outlets. It’s so easy to connect with fans nowadays. You know, I have a Twitter and things like that. I’m not a crazy Twitter guy to where I’m tweeting out stuff every day and rarely even once a week, do I tweet. But I mean, occasionally, I read some stuff.

The funny part is, you have a guy like me who is kind of getting like a mixed vibe from time-to-time. I get a lot of love and then you’ll get the hate in the middle of it but its just funny, the perspectives you know, the differences between the love and the hate. As far as the hate, it makes me laugh. Everybody is a critic. Every critic I’ve ever had, they weren’t wrestlers [laughs]. Every wrestler I’ve ever had critique me, they were always into my stuff or what I’m doing out there. For a non-wrestler, someone who doesn’t even know how to lock up, and if we did lock up, they wouldn’t know what to do, for them to critique any of us, it really does pop me.
