Roman Reigns recently spoke with Sports Illustrated about being on the cover of WWE 2K20, an honor he shares with “The Man”, Becky Lynch.
The “Big Dog” admitted that watching his friend and former SHIELD member Seth Rollins score the cover in the past, which of course comes with a major commercial deal promoting the video game, made him “envious”.
“This means a lot, and it’s something I’ve been chasing. When I saw Seth [Rollins] on the cover and the commercial that he did, I’m not going to lie—I was so happy for him—but it was so cool that it did make me envious. To be a part of this process and see this one come to life, it’s pretty neat. This is one of those things as a WWE superstar, you want to have this opportunity, you want to be on the cover.”
As far as sharing the cover of WWE 2K20 with “The Man”, Reigns called her match in the main event of WrestleMania, as well as her entire career thus far “phenomenal”, and spoke to what it means for him as a father with a young daughter.
“I thought Becky was phenomenal. But that goes a lot deeper than just her main event with Ronda and Charlotte. I’m talking about her whole career. She busted her ass to get to that position. Trying new stuff, evolving, troubleshooting, so to see that type of dedication organically and then to see it organically work out was a total Cinderella story.
“Becky has created this larger-than-life character, and that’s pretty motivating for me as a young father trying to help my young daughter to become a strong woman.”
