Roman Reigns recently spoke with Brian Fritz of SportingNews.com to promote Sunday’s WrestleMania 32 pay-per-view and the WWE World Heavyweight Title match against Triple H. Below are highlights:
How much different of a performer he is compared to this time last year:
Well, I have a full year under my belt so I would think I’m a much more experienced performer. I’ve been in this type of situation before. Just coming back this year, and to be able to do all of these cool things again, to have these relationships, meet different people and have these partnerships like I have today with Snickers who is the presenting sponsor of WrestleMania. These are the great opportunities that WrestleMania brings.
If he thinks the reaction will be negative on Sunday:
It will be probably both. I get a pretty good mixed reaction but whatever I’m doing, they seem to be pretty loud. So whether it’s cheers or boos, that’s what one thing I can typically count on. They’re going to be stirred up no matter what.
If his family will be there after getting upset at last year’s finish:
Oh yeah. Actually, I have more family this year. All of my siblings and all of my nieces and nephews will be there. So we’re definitely going to be represented by numbers. It’s going to be a great event. Last year, it was rough. It wasn’t so much the outcome. As long as I’m healthy and I finish and everything’s fine and I’m able to walk out of there and still be a father, a son and a brother, then my family is happy. Last year, it was pretty brutal. It’s not easy to watch your son get thrown on his back a whole bunch of times by Brock Lesnar. He’s on his own level. It was pretty tough for my mom to watch that but we made it through.
