WWE Tag Team champion Roman Reigns of The Shield recently spoke with Triblive.com to promote Sunday’s WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view. Here are some highlights of what he said about:
His Wrestling Heritage (The Rock, Yokozuna, Umaga & More):
“I come from very strong family. My heritage is strong within this business. I was gifted with a certain set of genetics. I’m athletic. I like to think I’m not a bad looking guy. One of the jokes we always talk about, as long as I can put a little oil on my arms, wet my hair and I’ll be alright.”
The Shield’s Debut in WWE Last Year:
“’It was pretty much unexpected. I heard some rumors we would possibly do something at Hell in a Cell. That kind of folded. We waited a few weeks to get to Survivor Series. Once we got the green light, we just kicked the door down.”
Working With Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins.
“’Being paired up with them has been an awesome experience. For me, I don’t even feel like I’m scratching the surface yet. I’m just now starting to let my hair down,’ said Reigns. “
