WWE Raw Superstar Nia Jax recently spoke with Josh Lawless of Sport Bible in-detail about Roman Reigns’ battle with leukemia.
On the WWE roster still coming to terms with the news:
“He’s such a quiet, humble person. Roman Reigns is this larger than life, Superman character but the true Joe, Joe Anoa’i is a very shy humble guy and he’s super giving and loving. I think we’re all still getting used to it. I think everybody’s trying to find their footing now we’ve lost our Superman.”
Getting the roster to do Roman’s battle cry:
“I had all the girls, present, past and future, do that tribute to him privately. I sent him a text and it was a video of him, my cousin Tamina and my aunt (Ata Johnson, The Rock’s mother). Then we had all the girls do the ‘OOH AHH!’ [Reigns’ battle cry] and he really loved it. It was really important.”
If The Rock would return to WWE:
“He’s amazing and he was super excited about the pay-per-view, the Evolution pay-per-view. He watched some of it when he had the chance to in between sets and so it was a pretty cool thing that he’s super proud of all this.
“His heart is always with the WWE, it’s so crazy because you wouldn’t think that with how busy he is, he wouldn’t keep up with storylines and characters and stuff but he does. If something peaks his interest, he would definitely step back into ‘The Rock’ role.”
