Roman Reigns was the guest on a recent edition of the “Talk Is Jericho” podcast, hosted by Chris Jericho himself. The Big Dog of the WWE talked about many things, with one of them being his clash with The Beast Incarnate at the Wrestlemania 33, in the main event that is going to be remembered as the moment when Seth Rollins cashed in his Money In The Bank deal.
Roman remembers that the talks for that match with Heyman and Lesnar weren’t easy at all and that they really didn’t want to make Roman look good in that duel. Here is what Roman said about the plans for that showdown with Lesnar.
“Np, it wasn’t easy, by any means. But the thing I had a lot of confidence in is I knew it was just going to be a fight. I knew it was going to be brutal and I like that s–t. Like, hey, if you want to bang, I’m all for it. I’m never scared. But it was just weird. It really was. It was last minute. It was one of those deals where it wasn’t a lot of talking, didn’t seem open to ideas, because, essentially, in their minds, and when I say ‘their minds I say, Brock and Paul, which, that is a powerful pairing right there.”
Reigns also noted that he did go to Suplex City right away, and he was ready for it. In the end, for The Big Dog, the best part of this match was when he randomly met his favorite wrestler, Bret Hart, in the backstage area. The Hitman told him that the duel itself was an “instant classic” which made it all more special for The Big Dog.
