WWE Universal champion Roman Reigns recently spoke with WWE Now India to hype up night two of WrestleMania 37, where the Tribal Chief defends his title against Royal Rumble winner Edge and former world champion Daniel Bryan in the evening’s main event. Highlights from the interview can be found below.
How he’s always trying to best himself:
You know, this is going on my fifth main event for WrestleMania. It could have been a sixth main event WrestleMania which has to be a record. But honestly, that’s something that I don’t really care. I don’t look at the record books. I don’t feel like I’m ever competing with anybody. I’m just competing with myself. I’m trying to best myself and just completely raised my game and always up the level that I’m at.
On Edge and Daniel Bryan’s comeback story:
The fact that I missed last year – to miss the biggest one of the years tough. So, to be able to get back in the swing of things and be able to perform at this WrestleMania, and that also be able to do it with such a legend like Edge. A huge amount of respect to Edge & Daniel Bryan. But to be able to see these guys his comeback story to see everything, the struggle that they’ve gone through the adversity that they’ve overcome, to be able to showcase our talents and our storytelling ability and bring the biggest fight to the WrestleMania stage possible.
His strategy for the match:
You can tell everybody I’ve been telling them I’m going to smash everybody. But the key is to kind of divide and conquer. I have to keep those two away from each other. Because huge that’s the biggest speed bump in this match for me. It is the fact that they can beat each other and still beat me. So for me, there hadn’t been a man to be able to keep the knees, shoulders pinned on the mat for more than 3 seconds. So, for them to have the ability to beat each other and become a universal champion – that’s a huge problem for me. So, I have to really assert myself early. Get rid of at least one of them focus on single one out and try to win as fast as possible. It’s real Lion stuff that we’re gonna have to be the king of the jungle out there and take over quick and hopefully take it home fast.
