August 6th, 2019  | Posted by: | Filed Under: Articles,Interviews

Last fall, Roman Reigns shocked the WWE fans with the news that he suffers from cancer. Meanwhile, his leukemia disease is in remission and the 34-year-old is back in the middle of the show fight events.

A drug therapy has made Reigns fit again for the wrestling ring , his treatment of the disease has brought the previously notorious few critically regarded top star even new popularity.

At the WWE SummerSlam 2019 on Sunday, the second most important show of the year, he is likely to contest his next big match – a duel against the man who had scaffolded him on the SmackDown TV show last week (Read here whom WWE wants to reveal as the “assassin” of Roman Reigns) .

Reigns, who has just celebrated his Hollywood debut alongside Dwayne’s “The Rock” Johnson in “Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw” , is now also at the center of WWE’s latest video game, joining forces with Becky Lynch the cover of WWE 2K20, which will be released on October 22, 2019 (for PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One family of devices, including Windows PC), and the centerpiece of a so-called tower mode that revolves around his career.

In the exclusive SPORT1 interview, Reigns talks about how the battle with the disease has changed his career in Vince McMahon’s promotion and why he would not be mad at the fans if they beat him up again. He also talks about the unwritten rules in the WWE locker room and why he continues to see his employer at the forefront of the wrestling landscape changed by the creation of the new AEW rival league.

SPORT1: Roman Reigns, you’ve been back in the ring since March, after a five-month break because of your condition. Is everything the same for you as before or has something changed?

Roman Reigns: I have a slightly different view of myself. Previously, I wanted to work as hard as possible, but I also put my own well-being behind my responsibility for the big picture, for my colleagues, for my family. My idea was: I always have to give 100 percent to live up to this responsibility. Now it’s a little different: it’s about listening to my body, taking care of my health, my diet. I’m not allowed to take any risks – and yet I want to use the potential that God has given me and make the most of it. I will not be athletic for many years where I am now and from what is still possible, I want to do the maximum.

SPORT1: You were booed by many fans before you were diagnosed. Would you be angry if it will be like before?

Reigns: No, the fans can do whatever they want. They pay for what we do with their money – their hard earned money. Everyone has their view of things and we enjoy every way that fans live out their emotions. Whether it’s cheering or booing: As long as it’s loud, everything is okay. Only if they are quiet and pick up popcorn while we are performing we have a problem.

SPORT1: They are – as the Undertaker used to be – a respectful person behind the scenes, a “Locker Room Leader”. Is this a correct attribution?

Reigns: Not everyone who is a leader has to call himself that in order to make it clear that he is one. But if you ask me like this: Yes, I think you can call it that.

SPORT1: How do you define this role?

Reigns:   Let’s put it this way: I am very proud to continue a certain work here that others have started: it’s about mutual respect in the locker room, the attitude of treating others the way you want to be treated. And also for respect for what we do and the principle of not taking anything away from others in one way or another.

SPORT1: Sounds like heart failure.

Reigns: This place has changed my life, given me many opportunities to grow, to become a better person. I care about WWE and I want to keep that. WWE took the risk with me, which the NFL did not want to deal with (Reigns had leukemia for the first time before his career, as it became known in hindsight, editor’s note)., I want to give something back and therefore I will make sure that nobody here will miss the respect for what we do. Who moves in our locker room and does not do that, I make my point clear, in one way or the other. I’m not afraid of anyone. My family has a history in this business and a personal one with the McMahons and I do not allow anyone to show any respect for what I do for my family. If that makes me the leader of the dressing room, call me that.

SPORT1: Becky Lynch, the other cover star of the game, ended her career early because of a ring injury in Germany and then fought for WWE and is now the champion and biggest female star there. What is it?

Reigns: Becky is an incredible fighter. It is carved from a different wood. She has brought here the fresh wind that the world has been waiting for. All the setbacks that she has put away over the years, injuries that almost ended her career, all this: you can see what passion she has for a fighter heart. I respect that immensely and as the father of a young daughter I find it all the more important to point out what they and our other women are doing. We also have in the women’s locker room main event material that lasts for days. Not just Becky, but the other three “Horsewomen” (Charlotte Flair, Bayley and Sasha Banks , d. Red.) , Ronda Rouseyand everyone else: you have created something special. I am very excited about how they will preserve it now, lead to new heights and pave the way for a new generation.

SPORT1: WWE has recently had to face the new competition league AEW, the most ambitious competition project since the end of WCW 18 years ago . Their friend Jon Moxley aka Dean Ambrose has moved there and has criticized WWE after his departure hard , her other old Shield colleague Seth Rollins has announced that WWE will also “steal” this competition. Is that your claim?

Reigns: I have said it before and stick to it: I think it’s generous of Seth to speak of “competition”. I do not want to talk too much about other leagues, it’s about us. Only so much: My ancestors were part of the Territorial era, as the wrestlers traveled from place to place and started where they could do the best business for themselves. In that sense, I’m absolutely in favor of that being possible again, it’s great that even if today’s wrestlers have their options, it’s also cool for the fans: all right. But: WWE is my home, which I represent, I do not want to be anywhere else. We are way ahead of the others, and I’m not just talking about the quality of the wrestlers.

SPORT1: What else?

Reigns: The quality of production is also eminently important, and what the crew does behind the scenes is unbelievable. Not everyone understands how many good people it takes to keep the store running. And for that you get respect only when you see how others do it less well. It’s easy to complain, complain, and write about what would make you better. But then to do it: that is a very different thing. Nobody will do better than WWE. Point.

SPORT1: WWE and Wrestling are in constant change, in the Nineties the league changed completely in the Attitude Era , even after WWE has changed and adapted to trends. What do you see as the next step in evolution?

Reigns: I would say we are in the process of making it, and indeed in the lead. We have perhaps the best social media platforms in the entertainment world, we do not study others, others study us. For me, what is especially important is the look at the little things, the details and we do it thoroughly. We have an incredible fanbase, every single one sitting in our locker room has fans all over the world – where else is it? We are all light years ahead.

The Shield has returned! Much to the elation of the WWE Universe, Roman Reigns has reunited with Raw Tag Team Champions Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins to wage war against the overwhelming quartet of Braun Strowman, Intercontinental Champion The Miz, Cesaro & Sheamus in a Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match at WWE TLC.

Though Reigns’ insisted he was on a different path from his former Shield brethren, the rumors began to run wild as to whether the fans were destined to see The Hounds of Justice together again, especially after Ambrose and Rollins put their turbulent history aside and captured the Raw Tag Team Titles from Sheamus and Cesaro.

While The Lunatic Fringe and The Kingslayer were busy duking it out with The Swiss Cyborg and The Celtic Warrior over the illustrious tag titles, The Miz was poking a stick at The Big Dog in his unrelenting search for respect. Eventually, “The Bar” aligned with The A-Lister to execute a brutal 3-on-1 beatdown on Reigns. The trio even tempted fate when they culminated their attack with a Shield-signature Triple Powerbomb and mocked the brothers-in-arms by putting their fists together a la The Hounds of Justice.

However, the ridicule turned serious in a hurry when the reunited Reigns, Ambrose and Rollins interrupted “Miz TV” one week later and unleashed a major counter-offensive of their own.

In the wake of the chaos, Raw General Manager Kurt Angle made the Six-Man Tag Team Match, and we are off to the races. However, when Miz pointed out Ambrose’s earlier boast that The Shield could take on four or five guys, Angle agreed to let The A-Lister try to secure a fourth member for his team. Instead of a man, though, the fourth combatant turned out to be a Monster Among Men, Braun Strowman.

A longstanding adversary to Reigns, Strowman also recently defeated Ambrose and Rollins, respectively. The massive Superstar literally tips the scales in favor of Miz, Cesaro and Sheamus in a big bad way. Together, the nearly insurmountable combination may prove cataphoric to the reunification of The Shield.

The latest chapter in the extremely volatile rivalry between Reigns and Strowman carries enormous implications for The Big Dog. Reigns has officially staked his claim that Raw is his yard, a notion that could have a tremendous long-term impact on WWE.

Reigns has backed up his talk with a tremendous history of taking on anyone put in front of him while constantly refusing to hide behind the likes of The Authority or any other force that could provide him an easier rise to the top. In April, he earned the rare distinction of overcoming The Undertaker at WrestleMania, which propelled his career to even greater heights. Reigns has clearly proven himself a force to be reckoned with, capable of carrying WWE on his back week-in and week-out. Looking to continue his meteoric rise to the top of the red brand, the three-time WWE Champion has already challenged the winner of the Universal Championship Match between Brock Lesnar and Samoa Joe to a title bout at SummerSlam.

However, despite heroic strides, Reigns is likely well-aware that a second pay-per-view loss to a dangerous competitor like Strowman could seriously threaten his championship aspirations, making it a safe bet that The Guy will pull out all the stops to keep that from happening. But will it be enough?

The match also carries significant ramifications for Strowman, the personification of destruction. Prior to crossing paths with Reigns, Strowman was already running wild and attacking Superstars if he didn’t get his way.

His brutal attack on The Big Dog in April — in which he turned over an ambulance with the three-time WWE Champion inside – showed just how far he was willing to go to eliminate the competition. And his victory over Reigns at WWE Payback was punctuated by The Monster Among Men ruthlessly driving the steel steps into his rival’s midsection in an unforgettable and horrifying moment. Now the ferocious Superstar will be out to take full advantage of the chaotic environment of an Ambulance Match, likely with the intent of making Reigns suffer so bad that he won’t be able to compete for the Universal Title.

A loss by Reigns could change everything. If Strowman produces another dominant showing, it’s possible that he could leapfrog his adversary in the Universal Title picture. If the massive competitor once again defeats The Big Dog, he could approach Raw General Manager Kurt Angle the following night on Raw with a legitimate claim to challenge whoever the titleholder is at SummerSlam. And if he were to be granted that right amd went on to capture the championship, Strowman’s reign of uncontrollable mayhem could reach even scarier heights. The level of brutality that would follow with Strowman on the top of the mountain could threaten the very order of Monday Night Raw and all of WWE.

The importance of this match at the first-ever WWE Great Balls of Fire pay-per-view is heightened given that it is a highly-personal showdown, containing a stipulation that completely throws the rulebook out the window. With all eyes on this inaugural event and the gloves off, it’s safe to say that both Superstars will be at their most vicious, and their combined intensity may result in lasting harm to one another and anyone else who gets in their way.

Don’t miss what promises to be a chaotic brawl at WWE Great Balls of Fire on Sunday, July 9 at 8 ET/5 PT, streaming live on WWE Network.

Kevin Owens is WWE Raw’s Universal Champion while Roman Reigns is its United States Champion, and just by hearing the names of those titles, you’d think that Owens is the show’s most important titleholder.

But you’d be wrong.

Although, just a handful of weeks ago, WWE appeared to get it right when Triple H helped Owens win the Universal title and established Owens as Raw’s No. 1 titleholder, that’s all changed. Reigns defeated Rusev at Clash of Champions to win the US title last Sunday, then successfully defended his belt against Rusev on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw.

No big deal, right? Well, maybe not, at least until you compare just how WWE has positioned Reigns and Owens in recent weeks.

Reigns vs. Rusev kicked off this week’s Raw, a booking decision that was obviously meant to combat the ratings monster that is Monday Night Football as well as the Presidental debate. The first hour of Raw almost always generates the show’s highest viewership, which should really tell you something about why Reigns appeared at the start of the first hour while Owens was stuck in the supposed “main event” segement, one which likely had several hundred thousand fewer viewers.

If perception is indeed reality, then the reality is this: Reigns, not Owens, is now Raw’s top champion even if, historically speaking, the US title has never really been positioned as the title in WWE.

In fact, perhaps we should have seen this coming after Reigns defeated Owens in a steel cage match on last week’s episode of Raw. Although Reigns’ victory came after he was the first one to escape the cage (rather than by pinfall), this was still a pretty good indicator of how WWE will continue to protect Reigns and struggle to book Owens in a dominant way.

Almost by default, Owens is positioned as the red brand’s No. 1 heel, and he also happens to be holding what should be considered the show’s top title. But we saw last year how much of a priority the US title became when it was held by John Cena, and it appears as if WWE is going that route again with Reigns.

During the WWE Manila tour, Inquirer Sports sat down with Roman to ask him a few question. Check out the interview below:

He’s not a bad guy. He’s not a good guy. He just thinks he’s the guy.

Roman Reigns said that his iconic promo the night after WrestleMania is a reflection of what he’s been feeling throughout his career.

“For me, I don’t try to think I’m a good guy, I don’t try to think I’m a bad guy. I’m just thinking I’m me,” Reigns told INQUIRER in an exclusive interview before WWE Live Manila last September 9. “When I walk into a building and in that ring, I know I’m the guy. I know I’m going there and do my thing and nobody could deny that.”

Though presented as a babyface (good guy), the crowd has been vocal in their displeasure of Reigns, even booing him in the greatest moment of his young career when he won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship from Triple H at WrestleMania 32 last April.

But the Samoan powerhouse doesn’t mind all the negative reaction, saying, “For me, it’s just been a crazy rollercoaster.”

“It can appear to be however it appears to be, but the only thing I remember after beating Triple H at WrestleMania is that everybody is standing up. I have great pictures of such a huge moment, the biggest WrestleMania of all time,” he said. “Some people get too caught up with my reactions. It’s a mixed reaction, but everybody has some sort of feelings towards me. For whatever reason, I rub people a certain way, there’s a reaction, some form of expression I’m pulling from these people.”

With him enjoying contrasting fan reactions, some people can’t help but compare Reigns to John Cena, one of the WWE’s most polarizing superstars. But for the third-generation superstar, he’d rather not make the comparison and trek a journey of his own.

“I think John Cena is John Cena. He’s had such a great career and such a long career. That longevity and consistency, that’s what makes superstars a superstar,” he said. “I’d like to think I’m a little bit different. I don’t know if it’s because the fans have been prepared because they’ve had John for so long and they knew that another guy, another alpha male who is going to compete is going to fill that spot. I think our fans are smart to the process on how we do this year-in and year-out. I’d like to think it’s a great situation, you have two guys who are going out there to compete and give you the best show possible with John Cena and Roman Reigns.”

And it’s the biggest thing that matters for Reigns, to have the health to continue wrestling all year round.

“For me, as long as I’m healthy and I get to do what I love, that’s going to make my day. It’s all about keeping my head down and sticking to this grind and sticking to this same drill I do everyday, and that’s what’s going to make me better than anybody: that consistency to be able to go out there every single night and do it night after night, 52 weeks a year. If I could just continue to do that, it feels like I’m hammering it down. If I can stay healthy and stay in that ring, good things are going to happen,” he said.

Coming from a decorated wrestling family, Reigns sees it as a responsibility for him to represent his
heritage whenever he steps inside the squared circle.

“I like to look at it more as a responsibility,” he said. “Everything I do, especially when I step in the ring, I represent my family. For me to represent my bloodline, my heritage, and continue to push the legacy that my family has, it’s an honor. That’s the main thing when you have such a competitive family and a family that has done so much in this business. The only thing I want to do is to push that standard. I want to take that bar and continue to lift it. The pressure is more of a responsibility and I love it.”

He also didn’t discount the possibility of fighting The Rock at WrestleMania, but said that it could only happen if the two of them would be fighting for the company’s biggest prize.

“I’m out here representing my family, and I don’t think a better way to represent our family than us going at it in the grandest stage of them all which, if that would be the case and I have to wrestle The Rock, I would have think the WWE Universal Championship or the WWE Championship would be on the line,” he said. “If there is one thing that get some family members going at it, it would be that, but also, it’s just paying great homage to our family and what we’ve done.”

Reigns, though, said that if he has a choice on who he will face in a dream match at WrestleMania, The Undertaker will always be on top.

“Most people would say The Undertaker and I have to go that way,” he said.

Reigns is hopeful to get a crack at the Deadman before he calls it a career, as he seeks to deal another loss in The Undertaker’s famed 23-1 record at the grandest stage of them all.

“I’ve been in the ring with him for a couple of times and everybody has heard the legend, not only of his character but also behind the scenes, just being the locker room leader he used to be, and he still is to this day. I think it will be incredible to share the ring with him,” he said.

Already a three-time WWE World Champion and a Royal Rumble winner, Reigns can say that he has already accomplished a lot in his career. But the biggest accolade he thinks he could get isn’t any hardware or trophy, but rather, the respect of his peers.

“I’m fortunate enough to do a lot of cool things. I enjoyed many great achievements, but for me, I still take it pretty personal, the art that I go out there and I paint,” he said. “For me, at the end of the day, I just want to know that I had the best career that I could possibly could have had. I did everything to stay healthy and continue to stay in the ring, and when it’s all said and done, there’s a lot of appreciation for the things I did in the ring, and that’s all I could ask for.”

Two years removed from the unforgettable rupture of The Shield, newly crowned WWE World Heavyweight Champion Dean Ambrose faces his fellow former Hounds of Justice Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns in a Triple Threat Match at WWE Battleground.

A three-way showdown among Ambrose, Rollins and Reigns seemed inevitable from the moment Rollins stabbed his brothers in the back, dissolving the once-dominant faction. Less expected was that it would be The Lunatic Fringe sitting in the catbird position as defending champion. Yet, Ambrose earned that accolade at WWE Money in the Bank, winning the event’s namesake match and cashing in his guaranteed championship match contract that same night against Rollins, who himself had just pinned Reigns to regain the title.

The cyclonic turn of events turned WWE on its head and underscored what everyone already knew: Competition among the former Shield allies runs deep and is full of parity.

So evenly matched are the Superstars that a single No. 1 contender could not be named the following night on Raw, when The Big Dog and The Architect jockeyed for the right to challenge Ambrose. As the thrilling match reached its crescendo, Reigns Speared Rollins onto the Spanish announce table and neither Superstar could beat the referee’s 10-count.

Even though no decisive winner was declared, Ambrose proved himself to be a fighting champion right away, volunteering to take on both Reigns and Rollins on Sunday, July 24.

With that, the table is now set for one of the most anticipated WWE World Heavyweight Championship Triple Threat Matches of all time. Which ex-Hound of Justice will prove his supremacy at WWE Battleground? Will it be the rebuilt and redesigned Architect, eager to win back the title he trained so hard to reclaim, only to lose it moments later? Will The Big Dog use his punishing strength to dismantle both friend (Ambrose) and foe (Rollins)? Or might the match’s Lunatic Fringe remind those who know him best just how dangerous he can be?

Watch the Shield showdown that has been years in the making when WWE Battleground airs live on the award-winning WWE Network Sunday, July 24, at 8 ET/5 PT.

Roman Reigns – The Bounty Hunter

He’s not a good bounty hunter, he’s not a bad bounty hunter. He’s the bounty hunter. This mercenary doesn’t need a rocket-firing jetpack or a high-tech suit of armor to capture the galaxy’s most elusive prey. With hound-like senses and a formidable fighting style, there’s a reason this for-hire hunter is known as The Big Dog.

No more count-outs. No more disqualifications. No more restarting the match to prevent a technicality from deciding the result. Just Roman Reigns, AJ Styles, the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and whatever is at their disposal in an Extreme Rules Match at WWE Extreme Rules to decide it all.

That’s a big jump for Reigns and Styles to make considering their first title match at WWE Payback was predicated on Styles having “the match of his life” in order to unseat Reigns’ self-proclaimed status as “the guy” around these parts. But with the introduction of Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson as potential accomplices to an unwitting Styles, it quickly became clear that Reigns’ first title defense of the New Era wasn’t exactly going to be first fall to a finish.

Even so, nobody expected quite how out of hand it was going to get. Things got so messy at WWE Payback that it took several restarts of the match by both Shane and Stephanie McMahon to eventually get to a fall at all, and only when the match had mutated into a No Count-out, No Disqualification contest was Reigns able to seize his win. That’s hardly a decisive victory, though, and it was almost immediately decided among the McMahons that drastic measures would be taken to protect the return bout, so here we are with an Extreme Rules Match to show for it.
