During last night’s episode of WWE Backstage, former WWE and Universal champion Roman Reigns spoke about Sunday’s Royal Rumble pay per view, and what it was like for him to work the event for the first time since returning from his battle with leukemia. (He missed last year’s).
It was just such a great story for me, ya know? It’s such a blessing, just to be here, healthy, feeling good. That’s always such a blessing. Sometimes you can take your eye off the ball and get distracted, but the little things can add up and make that big picture. So, to be a part of the Royal Rumble, to be healthy, and to be in there participating—not only be a part of the show, but be in that double-duty role and have that responsibility to not only start the show off, but to close it.
The Big Dog also commends Rumble winner Drew McIntyre, stating that the Scottish Psychopath is a hard worker and that he was happy to be able to help elevate him to the next level.
Making that moment and take Drew to the next level, get him that win, and get him to WrestleMania. I take a lot of pride in that, especially for a guy like Drew McIntyre. He’s busted his ass and worked really hard.
