The Shield

- In the video above, NYC DJ Paul Rosenberg spoke with Roman Reigns before WWE’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view last month. Here are highlights:

* He talked about triple powerbombing The Rock through a table at last year’s Royal Rumble and said it was pretty cool interacting with Rock.

* His dad is Sika, brother is Rosey, Rikishi is a first cousin, The Usos are second cousins, The Rock is a second cousin, Umaga was a first cousin and Yokozuna was a first cousin. He talks to his dad, brothers and cousins often about his career.

* Reigns thinks the rush from wrestling is cooler than football. He talked about how you control the crowd with wrestling and how you can connect with a wrestling crowd easier than a football crowd.

* Regarding the big buzz that Reigns has right now, he says his goal in WWE is to be the #1 singles competitor. He says The Shield was just meant to be.

* Triple H has been a big influence on him in the locker room. Reigns called him a great resource. He talked about Road Dogg, Michael Hayes, Jamie Noble, Joey Mercury and others being a big help.

    As much as I like Reigns and the fact he wrestles a lot like the Undertaker does with his speed and hard hitting he does…he is just lacking a gimmick to be a singles performer.

    That maybe more of a tweaking by WWE creative to give him a gimmick…but other than that…he’s a phenomenal wrestler in my opinion.

      name a wrestling move reigns knows besides a punch and a spear… reign haas a good look and decent mic skills but ring wise he has less of a moveset then john cena andknows nothing about selling,hes so fresh its not even funny

        LMAO comparing Cena’s boring wrestling to Reigns. Why do you think the crowd yells out…boring…boring every time Cena goes out there?? lol.

  • Rene Ramirez

    He can be the next Undertaker

  • DeadSurvivor

    I See Roman Reigns As The Second Coming Of The Big Bossman … Rather Than Being A Former Prison Guard (Ray Traylor), He Comes Across As An “Enforcer” Who I’m Interested In Seeing In Singles’ Competition … To See If He Has The “IT” Factor To Become Successful In The WWE Or Whether His Career Will Fizzle.
