​Roman Reigns Says He Doesn’t Think The Fans Have Turned On Him, Discusses Austin/Rock, More


During a recent interview with Ring Rust Radio prior to the WWE WrestleMania 32 pay-per-view event, Roman Reigns discussed a possible heel turn, possibly facing The Rock, Steve Austin’s recent comments and more. Here are some highlights:

On Steve Austin and others suggesting he turn on the fans: “You know, I don’t look at it as turning on the fans, because I don’t think they have turned on me. I still have a really large fan base and supporters that dig what I do. They love my matches and are entertained by my segments. For me, I think I need to stick with what I have been doing. We live in a world where everybody has an opinion and an opportunity to voice their opinions so it becomes a very critical era that we live in. For me, I know who I am, where I want to go, so I am just going to stick to my guns and keep doing what I am doing. It’s making for a loud reaction and that’s all that matters.”

On the possibility of facing The Rock at some point: “We haven’t spoken too much about wrestling each other. We speak and I do see him quite a bit. We usually exchange different ideas, share different tips, and advice.”

On a possible Shield reunion someday: “I’ll always hold the Shield close to the heart. I think we can all say that’s the vehicle that got us out of the warehouse. We spent many hours in that hot, Tampa warehouse trying to get to this point. I definitely one day would want to do it but I don’t see it anytime soon. I think that’s what makes the Shield different is we all broke out and were able to maintain the level of success that we had within the group but now we are doing it as individuals. It’s really nice to be the quarterback out there. You don’t always have to worry and coordinate with everybody else. You just go out there, do your thing, beat some ass, and go home. I always enjoy that part of it. I think the Shield was so special that one day we will have to get it back together.”

On headlining WrestleMania in back-to-back years: “I haven’t really let that set in as much as I probably should have because it still doesn’t feel real. The only thing I can really say on it is I feel very fortunate. I feel so blessed and I hope these last two years aren’t the greatest years I experience in my life but if they end up being that way I can’t complain. They have been incredible, wild, and it’s all felt like roller coaster ride. I have had a few ups and downs here and there. In the long run it’s been a lot of great moments, good memories, and awesome relationships. I think the key for me to lock down another year like this comes down to health. If I can stay healthy and go in that ring to perform every single night, then that’s what I want to do. It’s very tough on the body so the key is to maintain the healthiest body I can possibly keep.”
