Roman Reigns On Why Fans Should Support Him, Getting Injured During Brock Lesnar Match, The Shield

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch recently interviewed Roman Reigns, who was promoting last weekend's WWE live event at the Scottrade Center. Below are a couple of highlights:

Getting injured during his match with Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania:


"Right off the get-go, I popped him and he scudded me up and ran me into the corner. I think right there I felt a rib shoot out of place. It was a struggle ever since that. From the get-go, I was hurt. He was throwing me around. That's his thing. But I was throwing bombs at the end. He did his thing, and I did mine. I think you saw a couple of juggernauts go at it. We didn't get the finish we had hoped, but it was a hell of a fight ? the best fight I've ever been in."

Why fans should support him:

"I say what I do. I don't lie. I'm pretty straight up. I tell the fans, "I'm gonna come and fight my (butt) off." I'm gonna bring a big fight. This ain't gonna be a boxing match where we float around and dance. We're gonna lock horns and we're gonna go at it. You're gonna see some awesome stuff and some great athleticism. Heavy-hitting, hard action: That's what I do. It's gonna be a strong-style match, and that's the way I go at it. I bring the big fight. And if you are into that, please, by all means, come have fun with me. If not, come out and boo me. Just come out. It's a great night. We have something for everybody. If you are not necessarily into me, I guarantee we have somebody that you can cheer for and enjoy to watch."


If The Shield will get reunite:

"I don't know. It's tough. I don't see it happening any time soon. Me and Ambrose are having a good time right now. At the end of the day, "The Shield" was awesome, but I think it was necessary for us to split because now we have three individual superstars. It's not just "The Shield" ? it's Seth Rollins, it's Dean Ambrose, it's Roman Reigns, and we are our own individuals now. Even in an instance that we have now, me and Dean can team up and fight together. We are not "The Shield," but we are still kicking (butt) together. We are still boys and having a good time. I think that's the most important thing. Just have a good time with your friends and enjoy what you do."

Reigns also talked about getting booed, how he felt after the Lesnar match, his favorite wrestler and dream opponent, his guilty pleasures, if he plans to crossover into Hollywood and more. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
