Roman Reigns recently spoke with the folks from Sports Illustrated to promote the new WWE 2K20 video game. Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On what it means to be on the cover of WWE 2K20 with Becky Lynch: "This means a lot, and it’s something I’ve been chasing. When I saw Seth [Rollins] on the cover and the commercial that he did, I’m not going to lie—I was so happy for him—but it was so cool that it did make me envious. To be a part of this process and see this one come to life, it’s pretty neat. This is one of those things as a WWE superstar, you want to have this opportunity, you want to be on the cover."
"To share this with Becky makes it even more special. To be able to share this past year with her, breaking barriers, I’m pretty proud of that."
On Lynch's rise to the top in WWE being a Cinderella story: "I thought Becky was phenomenal, but that goes a lot deeper than just her main event with Ronda and Charlotte. I’m talking about her whole career. She busted her ass to get to that position. Trying new stuff, evolving, troubleshooting, so to see that type of dedication organically and then to see it organically work out was a total Cinderella story. Becky has created this larger-than-life character, and that’s pretty motivating for me as a young father trying to help my young daughter to become a strong woman."
On never being prepared to main event WrestleMania no matter how many times you do it and never being the same after it is over: "You have those nerves, you have those doubts and insecurities, all until you get through it. Then you’re never the same again. You’re a main-eventer for the rest of your life. If you’re in that position, you’re going to fight for everything. At the end of the day, you’re doing the same thing in the same ring that you do every single week, but that moment and experience can’t be replaced. The responsibility is yours to close it out and send them home happy, and it’s the magnitude that makes it so different."
