Roman Reigns 24/7 Online

Roman Reigns will face Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Championship at WrestleMania, which you can watch April 8th live around the world on the WWE Network starting at 7 p.m. ET, but first he chatted with me about how much he’s grown as a performer since his first one-on-one encounter with Lesnar, how he handled the adjustment period Ronda Rousey is currently going through, his unique connection with live crowds, and what it would be like to work with Paul Heyman.

So three years ago you were heading into a similar situation at WrestleMania, facing Brock Lesnar for the championship in one of the biggest matches on the show. How much different do you feel as a performer going into this match compared to that one in Santa Clara?

“It’s like night and day man. I was brand spanking new to that situation. At that point I had an aggressive schedule doing so much media. I was just trying to get my foot through that door. I had my toe in and was really just trying to make it happen, but this time I feel the experience that I’ve gained over the years. I’ve been here before, so I know how to handle the situation. I know what I need to do, in order to get to that next day after WrestleMania.

Anytime you’ve shared the ring with someone like Brock Lesnar it always helps. It’s never fun walking in there for the first time with him one-on-one.”

I was going to say the last time you faced him in that environment you beat the crap out of each other and it had to take a physical toll, but I would imagine there is part of you that is looking forward to stepping back into that environment.

Hulk Hogan. The Rock. Triple H. John Cena. Roman Reigns.

That’s the list of wrestlers who have been in the main event – the last match – of WrestleMania three years in a row.

If Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar is indeed the main event of WrestleMania 34 next Sunday (April 8) at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, then Reigns will join Hogan as the only men to go on last four consecutive years.

In New Orleans, Reigns’ main events will come full circle as the first one at WrestleMania 31 also was against Lesnar. Neither man actually won that match, but Reigns has defeated Triple H and The Undertaker at the past two WrestleManias.

The only other men to win back-to-back WrestleMania main events are Hogan, Steve Austin and Cena. If Reigns makes it three in a row by winning the Universal championship, he will join Hogan with three main even victories in a row – Hogan accomplished the feat twice.

That’s quite the impressive resume for a performer who debuted in November 2012. Reigns has taken over the reins from Cena as the top guy in World Wrestling Entertainment and has assumed the role of locker room leader, a spot The Undertaker held for years.

Reigns is a polarizing figure among fans, just like Cena, but despite a bulk of the fan base disliking his wrestling style and not agreeing with his meteoric rise, he has earned the respect of his peers. He credited his Shield brethren, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins, with helping him establish a group mentality in the locker room.

He said they gained a lot of respect once they showed they could talk the talk backstage and walk the walk in the ring. And then do it again the next day and the next and the next. They became the workhorses of the WWE.

“We banded together and did our thing,” Reigns said. “We kept the mindset that we’re going to leave this place better than we found it. If you have that mentality and you have the work ethic that all three of us have, it’s very achievable.

CLEVELAND — For weeks, Roman Reigns has disparaged Universal Champion Brock Lesnar for not showing up to Raw when he was supposed to. Last week, Reigns received a beating for his troubles, and now just two weeks from WrestleMania, The Beast returned under a cloud of irony: Despite the lifting of his temporary suspension, Reigns was the one who was seemingly nowhere to be found.

That led to some savage gloating from Paul Heyman, who called Reigns’ manhood into question for failing to live up to his family’s fighting legacy. To Heyman’s surprise, however, Reigns appeared in the crowd, steel chair in hand and ready to throw down. Lesnar obliged, and while The Big Dog connected a few times with the chair, he was still too weakened from last week to put up much of a fight beyond that. Lesnar snatched Reigns out of the air when he attempted a Superman Punch off the steps and easily overpowered him, thanks in no small part to his use of the steel steps as an equalizer. After another series of hellacious chair swings to Reigns’ back, The Beast was seemingly done, though he returned for one final statement at the expense of his challenger: An F-5 atop the steel steps.

As Roman Reigns was in the process of being taken into custody by U.S. Marshals for violating his suspension this past Monday night, Universal Champion Brock Lesnar brutally attacked the handcuffed Big Dog, who needed to be rushed to a local medical facility in the wake of one of the most callous assaults in WWE history.

Little is known about Reigns’ condition at this time, but one has to imagine that The Beast Incarnate’s actions have changed the landscape of the Universal Championship Match at WrestleMania. After all, most Superstars have difficulty simply standing upright in a match against The Conqueror. What chance does Reigns have if he’s still recovering from Beast-incurred injuries?

On Sunday, April 8th in New Orleans, WWE star Roman Reigns will appear in his fourth straight WrestleMania, when he faces Brock Lesner.

“You experience the main event at WrestleMania and it’s the craziest, most emotional night of your life, outside of birth of your children, but you can’t enjoy it, because you’re on a jet every day to promote it and the next show.  I haven’t had a chance to really enjoy it. One day I hope I get the chance to sit back and enjoy it,” says Reigns.

As a former football player at Georgia Tech, Roman did give the NFL a try, but eventually followed in his father’s footsteps to professional wrestling.

‘I’ve seen it firsthand.  Not only with my father and uncle, but my brother and multiple cousins.  Especially my cousin Junior, who wrestled under the name Rikishi.  His sons are tag team champions, we lived right near there, I would go over there, and we spent so much time together growing up and I pretty much lived at their house,” as Reigns reflects on his family history in the sport and his influences.

In the WWE, you can perform in over 200 shows a year.  The physicality demands only the most elite of athletes. And while the matches are undoubtedly choreographed, they still require, skill, practice and training.

Reigns explains what it is like for him show to show, saying “The audience changes every night. So your preparation, it’s not just an exact science. Like in football, you can play 3 technique as a D-lineman only a few different ways.  This is art.  You have to be intelligent, you have to register what’s happening, you have to know what’s next.  You want it to be a roller coaster ride for the fans, you want it to escalate as it goes on … you want it to get better and better and then the crowd gets louder and louder.”

While Roman has the physical gifts, and the training is a natural progression from football, he did have to work on his mic skills. He explains his latest technique of communication that is working when he says, “the easiest example is if they start chanting.  All you have to do is look.  And it gets stronger. There’s a fine line between pandering and a little interaction,  throwing gas on the fire.  But we’re all still conveying this story of athletic competition, and if you don’t do that, you’re missing out on a possible bigger reaction.”

DETROIT — For the second time, Universal Champion Brock Lesnar did not honor a planned face-to-face with his WrestleMania challenger, Roman Reigns. Unlike last time, however, The Big Dog decided to take his grievances straight to the top, and unlike last time, he immediately faced the consequences.

Reigns’ protests to Raw General Manager Kurt Angle over Lesnar’s absence failed to produce a reprimand for The Beast Incarnate, which he said was no surprise, as Lesnar was “Vince’s boy.” As such, and given that The Chairman had “disrespected” Reigns by not informing him of Lesnar’s absence in person, The Big Dog made his way behind the curtain and demanded answers from the man himself.

Their ensuing closed-door meeting was not captured by cameras, though The Chairman was caught coming out of his office and cleared the air on a few matters. For one, Lesnar was nobody’s “boy,” least of all his own. For another, no matter who Lesnar respects or does not, The Beast had indeed been afforded special privileges and could take advantage of them if he chose. Third, even though Lesnar occasionally steps out of line, Mr. McMahon gave his word that Lesnar would be at WrestleMania and, more immediately, he would be at Raw next week.

That said, Mr. McMahon found he had suffered the only disrespect of the evening and, as a result, The Chairman announced that Reigns would be temporarily suspended for his actions.

Roman looks to confront The Beast Brock Lesnar Live on Raw this week!!

The time for talk, it seems, is over. Live on Raw, Roman Reigns and Universal Champion Brock Lesnar will meet face-to-face, but they may be trading more than just insults. What will happen when The Big Dog and The Beast Incarnate step into the ring, four weeks before WrestleMania?

Digitals | Video

Last week, Roman Reigns arrived on Raw and went in hard on an absentee Brock Lesnar after the Universal Champion no-showed his scheduled face-to-face with his WrestleMania challenger. If nothing else, The Big Dog seemed to slightly turn the tide of public opinion against The Beast Incarnate, but Paul Heyman, speaking for his client, proved to be entirely unconcerned with the opinions of the audience when he arrived to “set the record straight.”

The Advocate began by demonstrating his and Lesnar’s status by laying the Universal Title down on the mat and didn’t waste any time in rebutting Roman’s remarks about Lesnar’s schedule: According to Heyman, The Conqueror isn’t any less impressive of a competitor because of limited appearances, just like The Undertaker. Furthermore, Reigns would never acquire the title because it “belongs to Brock Lesnar” and, according to Heyman, The Big Dog will never put the needs of the title above those of the family he fights to represent.

Reigns shoots on Lesnar WWE Raw 2/26/18

Following his win at Elimination Chamber the previous night; Roman Reigns was set to meet Brock Lesnar face to face on Raw 2/26/18. However, Brock Lesnar failed to meet his Wrestlemania opponent and was completely absent from Raw. This led to Roman Reigns calling out Lesnar and the fact Lesnar is an entitled piece of crap and hides behind his WWE contract and only shows up when the money is right and the city is right while The Big Dog and the rest of the WWE locker show up day in and day out around the globe no matter what. So why was Brock not at Raw and is this a shoot, storyline or a little of both.

According to Wrestling Observer here’s one theory:

We’re told the goal of the build to the Roman Reigns vs. Lesnar WrestleMania match on April 8th is to get Reigns cheered to lead to his win. Lesnar is also still scheduled to return on the March 12th Raw in Detroit.
