WWE Superstar Roman Reigns was recently the subject of a USA Today article, talking about Reigns’ history as a football player and fantasy football.

Reigns was an All-ACC defensive linemen at Georgia Tech before he started wrestling, and says his finisher, the spear, draws from football:

“My finisher, the spear, it’s pretty much an open-field tackle, driving my shoulder into the guy’s chest and wrapping up,” he said. “It was an obvious choice.”

Roman Reigns creates a fantasy team consisting of WWE Superstars who would make good players, and he had some interesting feedback on the positions:

Guard – Mark Henry and Bray Wyatt. “Mark Henry is a guard. Definitely a strong guard for sure. Bray’s got a low center of gravity and has good feet on him. He knows what to do.”

Fullback – Ryback. “He’d have a big neckroll. He’d wear a huge neck roll. He’d be the best. We’d have him mic’d up, and he’d be saying all kinds of big guy phrases. (Reigns breaks into a cave man voice.) Like, ‘Big guy block. Big guy block!’”

Coach – Paul Heyman. “He’d be a motivator, He’d have a hell of a pregame, postgame and halftime speech. And assistant head coach Arn Anderson. Just because I’d love to hear him talk.”
