As reported here on eWn, Roman Reigns was a guest on Chris Jericho’s “Talk Is Jericho” podcast. A number of things were discussed and Reigns ended up discussing his WrestleMania 31 match with Brock Lesnar.
Here are the highlights from that particular portion of the interview and the full audio version is down below:
Reigns: “Those two, they’re something else. They wanted to kill me. They were convinced however many people were there eighty, whatever, they wanted to see me get crushed. They were there and they just want to see Roman get his ass beat. And I can’t disagree with them, but brother got to fight. Hey, you can kick my ass all you want, but I’m going to fight.”
“I knew he wanted to get straight to the Suplex City, and I was like, ‘f–k it. Here we go!’ And nobody does this, like, it was ‘ding, ding, ding’ and I went right into him.” Reigns said, “for me, it was just about taking that ass-whooping and I’m thankful to Brock because he has got a name. Brock is legit, ‘I’ll break your face and I’m not scared to go in there and have someone break mine’. I’ve seen him crush people. I’ve seen him get his ass whooped too, by who was it? Velasquez or whatever. But just to have the balls to go out there and like do that, you’ve got to be a man and I respect him, I respect his name, and the fact that he went out there and he built it.”
