Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The hulking powerhouse brought his smash-mouth gridiron style to WWE’s developmental system, NXT, where he left a long line of tough opponents in crumpled heaps. But it was at the 2012 Survivor Series that Reigns made his greatest impact. Roman has achieved a lot so far in the little time he has been in the WWE he's a former tag team champion, 2014 Superstar of the Year, and 2015 Royal Rumble Winner, and he's just getting started. Roman Reigns is a force to be reckoned with. Read more?

The 859th edition of WWE Thursday Night SmackDown came to you from the FedExForum in Memphis, TN. After RAW concluded with Brock Lesnar leveling his ‘brother’ Dean Ambrose with the F-5 in the middle of the ring and with the Triple Threat Match to determine the #1 Contender for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania quickly approaching, Roman Reigns would be in action on SmackDown as Reigns would go one-on-one with “The Bulgarian Brute” Rusev.

With Fastlane just a few weeks away where he, along with his ‘brother’ Dean Ambrose and Brock Lesnar, will compete in a Triple Threat Match to determine the #1 Contender for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania, SmackDown kicks off with Roman Reigns as Roman would go one-on-one with “The Bulgarian Brute” Rusev, with his League of Nations brethren King Barrett & Alberto Del Rio in his corner. During the match, Roman Reigns had Rusev right where he wanted him as he sized “The Bulgarian Brute” up for the Superman Punch, but that is when King Barrett & Alberto Del Rio would get involved, pulling Reigns out of the ring for the disqualification. Del Rio then throws Reigns into the barricade before Dean Ambrose rushes out to make the save and, after taking it to Rusev, the Intercontinental Champion would dive off of the ring apron, but Barrett & Del Rio would move out of the way and Ambrose would inadvertently strike Reigns! Del Rio then levels Ambrose with a kick to the face before Ambrose is rolled back into the ring where Rusev locks the Accolade in on the Intercontinental Champion. Reigns then storms the ring with a steel chair and The League of Nations makes a quick exit from the ring.

JoJo is in the interview area with Roman Reigns. She asks him about the miscommunication they had earlier and if it will affect their match. Roman says they are never on the same page. He says that Dean is crazy and Roman digs that. They have their own styles. That was an accident earlier. At Fastlane, it won’t be an accident, it will be serious. Tonight, they will ride together and fight together. They will also win together, believe that.Then it was time for the main event as, after a battle earlier in the night, Roman Reigns would team with his ‘brother’ Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose to face League of Nations’ members Rusev & Alberto Del Rio, with King Barrett in their corner. During the match, Alberto Del Rio would have Roman Reigns on the outside and Dean Ambrose would go for a dive to take out Del Rio, but King Barrett would pull Del Rio out of the way and Ambrose would nearly take Roman out again. The confrontation between Reigns and Ambrose would then be interrupted when Reigns drops a charging Rusev with the Superman Punch. Roman then rolls Rusev back into the ring, connecting with the Spear and pinning Rusev to pick up the win for himself and Ambrose. Reigns & Ambrose then stand tall in the ring, managing to remain on a unified front despite a couple of inadvertent incidents.

Backstage, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose are waiting in The Authority’s office next to a glass case that houses the WWE World Heavyweight Title belt. WWE Principal Owner Stephanie McMahon then enters the office, saying that Roman Reigns knows what it’s like to have the opportunity to be on the grand stage of WrestleMania, challenging for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Roman responds by saying that, after Fastlane, either he or Ambrose will be a whole lot closer to the title. Stephanie then says that “absolute power corrupts absolutely” before saying that she doesn’t know how much longer Dean Ambrose wants to be referred to as “Roman Reigns’ sidekick”. Reigns and Ambrose appear to see right through Stephanie’s manipulative tactics before Stephanie says that they will see how “united” they are when they team up in the main event against The New Day, saying that, “one way or another”, they will be “divided” and they will “fall” come Fastlane.
Then it was time for the main event as Fastlane opponents and ‘brothers-in-arms’ Roman Reigns and Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose would face WWE Tag Team Champions Big E & Kofi Kingston, with Xavier Woods in their corner, with Brock Lesnar’s advocate Paul Heyman a guest on commentary. During a wild match, things would completely break down on the outside after Kofi Kingston takes Dean Ambrose down as Roman Reigns would take out Kingston. Big E then grabs Reigns and slams Roman on the announce table, but Reigns would soon return to the ring, taking Kofi out with the Superman Punch before Ambrose hits Big E with Dirty Deeds, pinning Big E to pick up the win for Reigns & Ambrose.After the match, Brock Lesnar would come out as “The Beast” would methodically make his way towards the ring, but with Reigns & Ambrose’s attention on Brock, The New Day would strike as Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods would blindside Reigns & Ambrose. In the middle of the fight, Reigns and Kofi would take their fight to the outside, taking each other out while, in the ring, “The Beast” would pick his spot as Brock Lesnar would enter the ring, grabbing Dean Ambrose and leveling the Intercontinental Champion with the F-5! Brock Lesnar then exits the ring with a smile on his face, having given Dean Ambrose his first taste of the F-5 and re-asserting his dominance three weeks before Fastlane

Four nights after the Royal Rumble, the 858th edition of WWE Thursday Night SmackDown came to you from the Amalie Arena in Tampa, FL. After finding out at the end of Monday’s RAW that they, along with “The Beast” Brock Lesnar, will compete in a Triple Threat Match at next month’s Fastlane event to determine who will challenge new WWE World Heavyweight Champion Triple H for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in the main event of WrestleMania, the “brothers-in-arms” would be on SmackDown as former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns and reigning Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose would be guests on Chris Jericho’s Highlight Reel! After learning on RAW that they will not only have to go through each other, but Brock Lesnar as well, to make it to the main event of WrestleMania with the gold on the line, will Reigns and Ambrose show any animosity towards each other on SmackDown or can the longtime friends keep WrestleMania from getting between them?

After learning on RAW that they, along with Brock Lesnar, will compete in a Triple Threat Match at Fastlane to determine who will challenge Triple H for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in the main event of WrestleMania, Roman Reigns and Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose would be guests on Chris Jericho’s Highlight Reel. Chris Jericho would first make his way to the ring, saying that he may have lasted 51 minutes in the Royal Rumble Match this past Sunday, but it was Triple H who emerged as the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Jericho then says that his match with the debuting AJ Styles on RAW was a “match for the ages” before Jericho gets to the matter at hand, the Triple Threat Match at Fastlane. Jericho then introduces his first guest as the runner-up in the Royal Rumble Match and the reigning Intercontinental Champion makes his way to the ring as Dean Ambrose joins “Y2J” in the ring, followed shortly by Roman Reigns. The brothers-in-arms come bearing gifts as Ambrose brings some flowers and Reigns brings a wooden stool to spruce up The Highlight Reel.

Jericho then asks the two friends if they will let animosity get between them as Ambrose says that they don’t fight over things like that. Without hesitation, Ambrose says that he will punch Reigns in the mouth with both men joking about their strategy for Fastlane. Jericho then says that Roman Reigns knows all about Brock Lesnar, but Dean Ambrose does not and Ambrose says that he is “indestructible”, saying that, when a trip to WrestleMania is on the line, he doesn’t have any time to be “scared” of Brock Lesnar. Reigns says that Ambrose doesn’t understand, saying that Brock is different than anyone that Ambrose has ever faced. This would lead the Intercontinental Champion to say that he doesn’t even have to beat Lesnar in the Triple Threat Match, he could just beat Reigns. Roman is quick to respond, saying that it would be the first time because Ambrose has never beaten him before.

However, The Highlight Reel is then crashed by The Wyatt Family, who appear on the stage. Bray Wyatt says that, at the Royal Rumble, they “slayed” Brock Lesnar before saying that they “ride”, trampling over those who “wander the pastures of hubris”. Roman tells Bray that they have no idea what he’s talking about before daring The Wyatt Family to come down to the ring and fight. Bray then says that he plans to test the “heart” of Reigns, Ambrose, & Jericho, saying that he and two of his followers are going to put all three of them “down” forever, saying that the “apocalypse” is upon them, advising them to “run”.

Then it was time for the main event as Fastlane adversaries Roman Reigns and Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose would join forces with “Y2J” Chris Jericho to face The Wyatt Family’s Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper, & Erick Rowan, with Braun Strowman in their corner, in a 6-Man Tag match. During the match, Roman Reigns was poised to pick up the win after connecting with the Superman Punch to Luke Harper, but Braun Strowman would pull Reigns out of the ring, ending the match by disqualification. After the match, Strowman would toss Reigns into the barricade before Dean Ambrose jumps on the back of the mastodon, but Strowman shakes Ambrose off, dropping the Intercontinental Champion with a big clothesline. Chris Jericho then tries to combat the big man, but Strowman would toss Jericho over the announce table!

The Wyatt Family then targets Roman Reigns, bringing Reigns into the ring, but that is when Roman would be saved by an unlikely hero as Big Show marches towards the ring with his sights set on The Wyatt Family. Erick Rowan meets Big Show at ringside, but “The World’s Largest Athlete” slams Rowan before dropping Luke Harper with a clothesline. The giant then enters the ring, coming face-to-face with Braun Strowman, but before a titanic brawl could break out, the rest of The Wyatt Family jumps Big Show.

Roman Reigns then looks to return the favor by coming to Big Show’s rescue, but Roman is caught by Strowman before Big Show grabs Strowman by the throat, sending Strowman to the outside. Roman then drops Bray Wyatt with the Superman Punch before Ambrose and Jericho jump back into the fray, sending Erick Rowan out of the ring. This leaves Luke Harper all alone in the ring as Big Show shoves Harper right into the Spear by Roman Reigns, leaving Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, Chris Jericho, & Big Show standing tall in the ring.

After starting the Royal Rumble match at number 1, Roman seemed to be holding his own. That is until Mr. McMahon ordered The League of Nations to twart an attack on Reigns. This beat down left Roman with no other choice but to leave the match. Until Sheamus was entering the match, Roman snuck him from behind. Reigns came back to fight and win. Well that looked like the case until The COO Triple H entered at number 30. He eliminated Reigns and won the championship.

Monday night on Raw from Miami, Roman showed up and wanted what was his. The main event saw Roman team up with his brother Dean Ambrose to face Sheamus and Rusev from the League of Nations.

Roman will get a chance to become #1 contender for the World Heavyweight Championship at Fast lane when he is involved in a triple threat match against Dean Ambrose and Brock Lesnar.

So after all of this how will Reigns ready himself for FastLane? What will happen on Smack down?

One night after a shocking and unprecedented Royal Rumble, the 1183rd edition of WWE Monday Night RAW came to you, live, from the American Airlines Arena in Miami, FL. Over the years, the Royal Rumble has become synonymous with shocking returns and shocking victories and, with this year’s installment featuring the much-anticipated debut of “The Phenomenal One” AJ Styles, the 29th Rumble was one for the ages. However, no one could have anticipated how the 30-Man Royal Rumble Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship would have concluded as, after being assaulted by Roman Reigns at last month’s WWE TLC event, Triple H would return as the surprise #30 entrant in the Rumble! No one was more shocked to see “The Game” than Roman Reigns, but what would shock everyone even more was that Triple H would actually eliminate Reigns from the Rumble, guaranteeing a new champion and, after “The Game” eliminated Dean Ambrose, the unthinkable became a reality as, for the fourteenth time in his legendary career, Triple H is the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion! Throughout the Royal Rumble Match, WWE Chairman Mr. McMahon would throw everything he had at Reigns, instructing The League of Nations to put Roman out of commission, but in the end, the true secret weapon was the Chairman’s son-in-law Triple H. Now that he has lost the WWE World Heavyweight Championship to, of all people, Triple H, how will Roman Reigns react on RAW? Holding his first World Championship in nearly seven years, what will new WWE World Heavyweight Champion Triple H have to say about winning the title?

Backstage, Roman Reigns arrives in the arena and is questioned by JoJo as the interviewer repeats what Mr. McMahon had to say about him being “miserable”. Roman responds by telling JoJo to let Mr. McMahon and Triple H know that he’s in the arena and he’s not leaving until he hears their announcement regarding the main event of WrestleMania, which will be determined at Fastlane.

After he was unable to hold onto the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in the 30-Man Royal Rumble Match after being eliminated by Triple H, who would go on to win the title, “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns would team with the runner-up in the Royal Rumble Match, Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose, to face The League of Nations’ Sheamus & Rusev, with King Barrett & Alberto Del Rio in their corner. At the end of a chaotic match, it was Dean Ambrose saving Roman Reigns from being pinned after the Brogue Kick from Sheamus and, shortly after this, Reigns would deliver the Spear to Sheamus, pinning Sheamus to pick up the win for himself and Ambrose.After the match, Roman Reigns & Dean Ambrose would have revenge on their minds for what The League of Nations did to Roman Reigns at the Royal Rumble as Ambrose exposes both announce tables. Reigns & Ambrose then bring Rusev to the top of the French announce table and, in a flashback to their days as members of The Shield, Ambrose would hoist Rusev on the shoulders of Reigns as the two men deliver a double powerbomb to Rusev through the announce table! WWE Principal Owner Stephanie McMahon then comes out to the stage to make the big announcement as to who will compete at Fastlane for the opportunity to challenge Triple H for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania. Stephanie then announces that the match at Fastlane will be a Triple Threat Match between Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns, and “The Beast” Brock Lesnar! Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose are then left staring unsurely at each other, knowing that, at Fastlane, they will not only have to go through each other, but Brock Lesnar as well, if they want to main event WrestleMania.

For 28 years, Superstars have become legends and unforgettable moments have been etched in time as every competitor one day hopes to be in the main event of WrestleMania and that path to stardom begins at the Royal Rumble as the 29th annual WWE Royal Rumble came to you, live on the WWE Network, from the Amway Center in Orlando, FL. Throughout a nearly thirty-year tenure, WWE’s “Big Four” mainstay has produced some of the biggest Superstars and most memorable moments in WWE history from the winner of the first ever Royal Rumble Match, “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan, to last year’s Rumble winner, Roman Reigns, bolstering such names as Bret “The Hitman” Hart, Shawn Michaels, The Rock, Triple H, Batista, Brock Lesnar, The Undertaker, Edge, John Cena, and three-time winner Stone Cold Steve Austin as those who have paved their own road to greatness on the grand stage of WrestleMania.

However, this year’s Royal Rumble Match would be much different than what the aforementioned gladiators had to go through as this year’s 30-man melee would be contested for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship as, for the first time in history, the WWE World Heavyweight Champion will be an official participant in the Royal Rumble Match with his championship being placed on the line. As if this did not stack the deck enough against reigning WWE World Heavyweight Champion and last year’s Rumble winner Roman Reigns, the proud champion would be forced to enter the match as the #1 entrant, meaning that Roman will have to outlast 29 other Superstars to hang onto the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Roman Reigns will face bigger odds than any champion that has come before him as Reigns will have to contend with the likes of nine-time former World Champion and Royal Rumble Match veteran Chris Jericho, the entirety of the dominant, unforgiving, and seemingly unstoppable Wyatt Family, “The World’s Largest Athlete” Big Show, and the man who Roman Reigns collided with at last year’s WrestleMania, “The Beast” Brock Lesnar!

Those aforementioned names are just the Superstars that Roman Reigns will know he will have to contend with as, in what has become a Royal Rumble tradition, there could be any number of surprise entrants into this year’s Royal Rumble Match. While it definitely appears to be a “One Versus All” situation for the champion, one cannot forget that the Royal Rumble Match is every man for himself and only one Superstar can walk out as the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, meaning that alliances are fragile and a Superstar could betray a friend or a family member at any given time, all in the name of the top prize in WWE, the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Who will win this year’s Royal Rumble Match and who will walk out as the WWE World Heavyweight Champion? Can Roman Reigns continue to do what he has done?

While it definitely appears to be a “One Versus All” situation for the champion, one cannot forget that the Royal Rumble Match is every man for himself and only one Superstar can walk out as the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, meaning that alliances are fragile and a Superstar could betray a friend or a family member at any given time, all in the name of the top prize in WWE, the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Who will win this year’s Royal Rumble Match and who will walk out as the WWE World Heavyweight Champion? Can Roman Reigns continue to do what he has done

Smackdown Results | January 21, 2015
Published by: · Date: 2016/01/22 · Filed Under: Photos, Recap, Smackdown Results

Three nights before the Royal Rumble, the 857th edition of WWE Thursday Night SmackDown came to you from the Wright State University Nutter Center in Dayton, OH. With the biggest challenge of his career coming up this Sunday at the Royal Rumble when he is not only forced to defend the WWE World Heavyweight Championship against 29 other Superstars in the 30-Man Royal Rumble Match, but he will be forced to enter the Rumble as the #1 entrant, Roman Reigns would have another roadblock placed in front of him on SmackDown as the WWE World Heavyweight Champion would have to face all four members of The League of Nations as Reigns would face Sheamus, Rusev, King Barrett, & United States Champion Alberto Del Rio in a 4-on-1 Handicap Match!

Then it was time for the main event as, three nights before he is forced to put the WWE World Heavyweight Championship on the line in the 30-Man Royal Rumble Match at the Royal Rumble this Sunday, WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns would have to contend with all four members of The League of Nations in a 4-on-1 Handicap Match. During the match, Sheamus, Rusev, King Barrett, & Alberto Del Rio would disregard the rules of the match, leaving the referee no choice but to end the match by disqualification. After the match, Sheamus, Barrett, & Del Rio would hold Roman Reigns up as Rusev delivers a super kick to the champion, but before The League of Nations can continue the assault, The Usos make the save for his cousin. However, The Usos would also fall to The League of Nations with Rusev taking one Uso out with a big kick and Sheamus taking out the other with the Brogue Kick. Roman would then re-enter the fray, taking Rusev out with the Superman Punch and blasting Sheamus with the Spear.

However, much like on RAW, The Wyatt Family would then appear, surrounding the champion on all sides, but Reigns was ready for the fight as Roman takes it to Luke Harper & Erick Rowan, symbolically throwing Harper and Rowan over the top rope in similar fashion to the Royal Rumble Match. The champion’s onslaught would then come to an end at the hands of Braun Strowman as the mastodon tosses Reigns over the top rope to the outside where Roman is blasted with a pair of kicks by Harper & Rowan. Harper & Rowan then bring Reigns back into the ring where Strowman flattens the champion with a big slam before Bray Wyatt drops Roman with Sister Abigail as, once again, The Wyatt Family is left as the dominant force in the ring in what may very well be a sign of things to come in the Royal Rumble Match this Sunday.

Roman Reigns on making History at the Royal Rumble
Published by: · Date: 2016/01/20 · Filed Under: Interviews, Roman News

Ever since Roman Reigns won the WWE World Championship on Monday Night Raw, there has been a target on his back.

It’s one versus all.

The 30-year-old competitor must take this mentality into the Royal Rumble 8 p.m. ET. Sunday, Jan. 24 on pay-per-view and WWE Network. There, Reigns must overcome 29 other superstars to retain his title. The odds are not in his favor, but he is ready. You can believe that.

“If there is a match I’m prepared for experience-wise, it’s the Rumble,” Reigns said. “The battle-royal-style match has been good to me. In the past two years, I have collectively been in there an hour or so, if not more. I have the elimination record for not the actual match, and I’ve won it before. So I like to think I have a lot of good things going for me. You just never know what can happen. You never know who is going to be in the Rumble. It’s 29 other guys. This event has a history of great debuts, comebacks, surprises, things that will make you laugh, things that will make you jaw drop. It’s going to be a great night hopefully for me.”

The popular superstar’s accolades this early on in his career is impressive. However, the ascent to the top wasn’t without obstacles. The football player turned grappler enjoys a good challenge and meets each one head-on. His strive to be the best has helped him as champion fulfilling all the obligations being the top dog entails.

“I’ve been running pretty busy, even in The Shield days,” Reigns said. “I think WWE did a good job of preparing us. From pretty much day one we were doing a lot of stuff all the time. We had the shows, behind the scenes work and a lot of media. Then, when we broke up and went into singles mode, it intensified even more so. I was already running that super hectic schedule already. So it kind of prepared me. There have been times I’ve been in seven or eight segments in one night. So if you can handle that, you can handle anything. The main difference is the gear bag. It’s just so heavy. But it’s the best kind of heavy. I love lifting this.”

Caught in a whirlwind of responsibility inside and outside the ring can be overwhelming. Reigns has even more added pressure with some of the biggest names including Randy Orton, Daniel Bryan, John Cena and Seth Rollins on the sidelines.

“We are a little banged up as a roster right now,” Reigns admitted. “That happens. This is a physical performance that we go out there and do. Everybody knows that it’s definitely not ballet. So we know what we signed up for. The good thing is it allows people to step up. I’m not the only guy on this roster. There are plenty of guys who have been helping me and the company out tremendously. Plenty of guys you probably haven’t heard about in a while — or at all. Just like any other sport, any time a guy goes down it is unfortunate and brings the next man up.

“That creates a great opportunity for both men,” Reigns continued. “A newer guy gets to step up and get on this level. Then there is the guy who got hurt that has to rebuild to come back and evolve and start fresh. You see it all the time. When you see a guy come back after getting hurt, you see it in his face and eyes. The refresh factor is so crucial. We don’t ever have any time off. There is no off-season. Unfortunately, an injury can recharge your batteries.”

Reigns attributes much of his success not only to a steadfast work ethic, but the people who have his back at home and on the road.

“Even before winning the title I’ve always received great advice and been mentored properly,” Reigns said. “I have been prepared for such a vast track and too handle all these things. I have been reassured to trust myself. It becomes even if you feel like you don’t know what you’re doing, you know what you’re doing. I was born to do this. This is the life I feel like I was supposed to live. For me, the person that helps me out and gives me the most is my wife. That is who pushes me and reassures me. I have a strong foundation. I have a strong support system, and that starts with the woman I love the most (wife Galina). She helps me and allows me to live this crazy life. She captains the ship on our own. She takes care of our household, our daughter and our livelihood that allows me to go out and live this circus life. Without her, I wouldn’t be able to do what I do.”

The WWE Universe has been there for every step of Reigns’ journey in sports entertainment, from developmental to the main roster. Much like any emerging superstar, he has his off nights, but he makes sure to learn from them. After going solo Reigns has also dealt with a polarizing reaction at times, with criticism directed to his work on the microphone. His strengths have been his athletic ability and letting his actions do the talking.

“Everything is a process,” Reigns said. “We have to remember this is a show. We have storylines. Believe me, nobody wants more than to show up to the building and do what he wants to do than me. I’d love to just show up and say,’ This is what I’m doing. Thank you. I’ll see you out there.’ But it is a process. It’s a creative process, which I love. I love to be able to collaborate with people and bounce ideas and brainstorm together. That’s the most important thing. Sometimes you have to do what is best for the team, and you have to earn equity with respect and trust.

“Then when it gets to that point where you can let your hair down and run with the ball, you do that. Fortunately for me, I stayed the course. You’ve seen some bad stuff, some decent stuff, and what I like to think, some great stuff. It’s all about growth and progression. There is no off-season, so we have plenty of time and platforms with the shows we have to put that out there and show the evolution of a character and personality. That’s where I’m at now. I’m just trying to be me and have fun because fun reflects. People see that and enjoy themselves as a result.”

All eyes are on Reigns and his feud with The Authority made up of Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, and Vince McMahon. He enjoys working with the WWE chairman. After all, it’s not every day when your job involves punching your boss in the face.

“It’s been incredible,” Reigns said. “Behind the scenes and in front of the camera is a little different. There are a lot of ways to describe Vince McMahon. He is an incredible man. He has the biggest plate to load up in WWE. He has so many things on his shoulders. He is pretty much the WWE champion every single day with his responsibilities. He has a tremendous drive and work ethic that is unmatched. He has been doing this for so long. They say he is 70. I don’t believe it. I think it’s more like 40 by the way he looks. The shape that he is in. It’ s been incredible to be out there with him and build crowds with him and to share the ring with him.”

Professional wrestling runs through Reigns’ veins as a member of the famed Anoaʻi family. The Samoan bloodline includes the likes of his father Sika of the Wild Samoans and brother Rosey. Reigns also has an impressive list of cousins ranging from the Usos to The Rock. He was excited to find out the Hollywood heavyweight will be part of the WrestleMania 32 festivities in April.

“He is The Rock,” Reigns said. “This is where it all went down for him. This was the slingshot into what he is doing now. So he has always held that deep in his heart. He knows where he belongs and where his family is. To have the biggest live event and the biggest gathering in the world, why wouldn’t we have The Rock? As far as what he will do, what can’t he do? We can throw him into trunks to have him wrestle. He can come in like he did last year and cut a promo. He can bring his guitar and go out there to sing for an impromptu concert. We do a little bit of everything that day. So I think there is always a spot for him. He has been the host before. So he has worn many hats within this business. You just have to tune in to see what he is going to do next.”

With the road to WrestleMania kicking off Sunday at the Royal Rumble, Reigns has his eyes set on headlining once again. The master of the “Superman Punch” and the spear is focused on making the impossible possible.

“If it involves the main event of WrestleMania, that’s the key to me,” Reigns said. “I have to get through this Royal Rumble. I’m going through 29 competitors defending the WWE championship. It’s never been done. I got all the odds against me, and I’m number one. So if somehow I can pull off a miracle and get through this, I don’t care who I wrestle. If you’re defending the WWE championship at WrestleMania, you’re going to have a high-end and well-known opponent. That’s all I can ever ask for. Just being in the event is a great honor.
