roman reignsWWE star Roman Reigns recently spoke with SLAM! Wrestling to promote tonight's Raw in Montreal, and the following are some interview highlights:

What if The Shield Hadn't Split Up?:

"I could have really seen The Shield closing down every single show for the next three years. I think we had that ability and that we were that hot,. I think it's an understatement that the vast majority of the fans loved The Shield. But we didn't have too many opponents left to face. Possibly the Wyatts, but you can't really go above Evolution, especially after beating them twice. Between myself, Dean and Seth, we're doing the exact same thing The Shield was doing, but we're doing it on our own now."

His Time in WWE developmental:

"It definitely helped. I've always been the kind of guy who was thrown in the fire. I was always been able to learn pretty fast. It taught me all the basics that I needed to know, taught me a lot of things about being in the locker room, around the boys, the producers and the office."

His goals in WWE:

"I always watch, learn, see what works and then make it my own and make it better than anybody would ever imagine it would be. I want to raise the bar, to be the actual best performer, to be the best man possible, to be the biggest WWE superstar the world's ever seen. Those are my goals. I want to be the top guy, to run this company, to run the locker room and just make this product better in general."
