WWE Superstar Roman Reigns sat down with IGN.com to talk about this Sunday’s WWE Summerslam pay-per-view, the WWE 2K15 roster reveal, and much more.
Reigns was open about how much of a gamer he is, how he looks at extending his family’s legacy, and other topics. You can read a few excerpts from the interview below:
Reigns on his first SummerSlam singles match:
I’m excited, man. It’s a great opportunity to me. I have a really strong opponent in Randy Orton. A former multi-time world champion. He’s held just about every title under the sun. And he’s done it all in a major way. He’s basically wreaked havoc and ran roughshod over the WWE for quite some time. Some people might forget that. Not the Viper part, but that for many years he was running the show. The biggest bad guy in town. So I couldn’t have a better platform and a bigger stepping stone than I have at SummerSlam.
Reigns on participating in the WWE 2K15 roster reveal this weekend:
Yeah, that’s going to be a funny situation. Because the whole thing’s being moderated – key word – by “Stone Cold” Steve Austin. What does that mean? He’s controlling how many beers we have? He could be the worst moderator. What if we all started fighting? He’d like it. He’d fuel that fire. But seriously, I also think it’ll be a great opportunity to showcase the SummerSlam itself. And it’ll be really entertaining, because you never know what’s going to happen with all those personality in one place. You’ve got myself, Cesaro, Sheamus, John Cena, Sting, and the Hulkster. With “Stone Cold” Steve Austin overseeing the whole thing. That speaks for itself.
Reigns on his family’s (the Anoa’i family) legacy:
Some people might look at it as pressure, but I look at it as a challenge. For me, it’s a responsibility to represent my family every time I step foot in the ring. When I came into this business, there was a bar set for me. My goal is to push it as high as I can to make my family’s legacy even stronger. To add to the history that’s already been created. So for me, it’s a huge challenge that I’m willing to fight for every single day.
