Roman Reigns Daily Online

Mark Calaway has walked into WrestleMania 27 times as The Undertaker. He has won 25 of those matches, including 21 in a row, before Brock Lesnar broke “The Streak” in 2014 and Roman Reigns added a second loss in 2017.

The Undertaker’s streak became the stuff of legend — the centerpiece of a career that has carried on over four decades. The Streak crystallized why Calaway has long represented the beating heart of the WWE locker room, and it made facing The Undertaker at WrestleMania a badge of honor.

“It was a bucket list situation to say I shared the ring with him,” Reigns said. “You’re dealing with The Undertaker; you’re dealing with so much more than one match. It’s the legacy and the influence. The trademark of him, like how his name echoes through the hallways backstage. We have traditions named in his honor. Like the ‘Taker Shot.’ We all gather up after every tour at the hotel or in catering. We give a toast to whoever led the tour, like the veteran in the main event. It’s always been known that after the main of the last show, you get everybody together and get these shots together, because we have to do the ‘Taker Shot.'”

ESPN spoke with 10 opponents of the Undertaker — and one referee — about what it was like to hear the “gong” of his entrance theme song, to take a Tombstone piledriver in front of 80,000 fans, and to help write another chapter in a wrestling legend: Jake “The Snake” Roberts (WrestleMania VIII, 1992); Kane (Glenn Jacobs) (WrestleMania 14, 1998, and WrestleMania 20, 2004); Ric Flair (WrestleMania 18, 2002); Matt Bloom, aka A-Train (WrestleMania 19, 2003, with The Big Show in a handicap match); Randy Orton (WrestleMania 21, 2005); Edge (WrestleMania 24, 2008); referee Jimmy Korderas (WrestleMania 24); Shawn Michaels (WrestleMania 25 and 26, 2009 and 2010), Triple H (WrestleMania 27 and 28, 2011 and 2012), Shane McMahon (WrestleMania 32, 2016) and Reigns (WrestleMania 33, 2017).

 

What was it like when you found out you were facing The Undertaker at WrestleMania?

Roman Reigns: I remember the conversation with Vince. I saw Taker like a week prior, and he almost gave it away, but he did good in covering it up. He could tell I didn’t know yet. When Vince explained it to me, I was just in awe. It’s something that everybody who gets into the business wants, to get into the ring with The Undertaker. And I remember the first thing I thought was that I wanted to put him over. I wanted to lose. Immediately, that was my instinct. Out of respect. I knew he was in pain, but I didn’t know he was going in [for hip surgery] soon after that or else I would have crafted that story a little differently. So I knew it was on me to try to help carry it. The movement of the match. Orbit around him. But I thought it would have been a better story if I was on my back at the end. Obviously, it didn’t go that way.

What was it like to experience The Undertaker’s entrance at WrestleMania?

Reigns: Every single step that he takes to the ring, he’s thought about it. Every movement. Every inch of his entrance.

What was the aftermath of your WrestleMania match against The Undertaker?

Reigns: When I went through gorilla [position] and he was still in the ring, I was just tucked off from the ramp into this little tiny holding area where people do last-minute [preparations] before a match. I just sat in one of these little chairs and I cried. It was such an emotional overload, for bad reasons and for good reasons too. As a perfectionist, I think Mark can agree that we had such an awesome story. If it had all went perfectly … aw man, it would have been so fire. But the opportunity to main-event a WrestleMania with Taker, I was so grateful. But the perfectionist in me could not let it go. It ate me up. It still bothers me a little bit. I remember my cousins [The Usos] and I skipped out on the after-party, and I didn’t get back to the hotel until like 2 a.m. because we drank all night and talked. I probably shed a few more tears that night too. I had so many hopes and aspirations to take advantage of that man’s time and do right by him, and I just felt like I failed that situation. And it just lit a fire under my ass. I don’t think I had a bad match since.

I had a chance to speak to WWE Superstar Roman Reigns, and we talked about a myriad of topics including his relationship right now with World Wrestling Entertainment going on Saturday morning.
PJ: Good morning to you buddy. It’s great to have you on the Patrick Johnson show here. Just want to get an update. Update on how you’re doing physically right now with everything going on covid-19 is your health good
Roman: Right now things are good. And you know, I’m very blessed to be in a position where I still have a job and they’ve been very supportive of me, you know taking control of I guess my narrative and  protecting myself and my family I can’t thank of WWE enough, you know new babies  and the opportunity to protect their family.
PJ: So  just to clarify cause you know, there’s a lot of chatter about this. From wrestling fans you and the WWE are good right now, right?
Roman: Me and the WWE have always been good and we will always be good. They could fire me today and I would still be so grateful for the opportunities that I have been afforded in the times and you know, the memories and friendships and relationships that I created in WWE. WWW will Always be good with me. That’s for sure WWE
PJ: Superstar Roman Reigns joining us here on the PGA show today. Leukemia Survivor one-time College. All player with Georgia Tech and he is speaking today with the group LLS are on behalf of the group LLS the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. We’re going to have a little bit more on that it just a minute plus another special guest joining us, but  Roman Reigns is on the phone line with us right now.
PJ: Roman as far as the decision to pull out of WrestleMania and kind of hold out right now while this pandemic is going on being a two-time leukemia Survivor. What went into that decision how much consulting did you do with your medical team? Maybe with the WWE’s medical team Etc.
Roman: You know, I had you know, the help of my doctors, LLS, but it was mainly just a personal choice that I had to make as an individual, you know, not only just for myself and my family but just, you know, for my community as well. I think that every scenario is different and we’re all individuals and we have to think like but I had to think for myself and you know make that choice for my family.
PJ: any time anyone hears the word cancer. It’s a scary diagnosis. I have to imagine it was both times, but maybe how was that diagnosis and you receiving that news different the second time around than the first time around for you
Roman: you know, I so young and there wasn’t a huge support system for me, the second time around I had you know a huge fear. I’m losing everything I had worked for, losing my job, losing my dreams. You know the first time it happened I had no clue what you know about being a wrestler being with WWE achieving the things that I’ve been able to achieve. So losing all that was very scary. But as soon as I shared it with the world to feel that that outpouring of support you know wrapped a huge security blanket wrapped around me. It just made me know that I made the right choice by sharing it and it just really shows the positivity that we still have in this world, but the internet and the connectivity of social media and some people really try to use it in a very negative way, but my story kind of showcases the positivity and the support.

Added screen caps of Joe Anoai aka Roman Reigns from the Netflix movie: The Wrong Missy to the spear galleries

Roman’s Role:

‘Missy’ begins with the worst first date ever.

A laid-back and lonely sort, Tim gets shot out of the cannon of love as soon as Missy enters his life. He almost gets into a fight with a large, muscular fellow (WWE wrestler Roman Reigns), she whips out a huge knife that would make Crocodile Dundee jealous, and while trying to escape out a bathroom window, Tim falls and grotesquely dislocates his ankle. Fortunately, Missy finds him and happily/crazily crams it back into place with a shudder-inducing crack.
