The Big Dog recently sat down with Brian Fritz from Sporting News where they glossed over Roman’s illustrious career, including his early beginnings playing football. A big topic of conversation was on his upcoming fourth round with Brock Lesnar, and how important it is for Reigns to finally close the door on the Beast, and bring the Universal Championship back to weekly T.V.
It’s killing us. It’s killing us. It makes for better storytelling. It would be a better product. It would be a better show. When you have the diamond that everybody’s chasing, it gives everybody a GPS of where they are and where they’re trying to be. Not only that, it’s a driving force for live events. It’s a driving force for our Friday, Saturday and Sunday (non-televised events) when we don’t have a network special or a pay-per-view. It’s important to have that thing hanging up in the locker room in a tiny town in South Dakota on a Friday when people are not motivated. A young talent comes in and says the champ’s in here and the title is hanging up. I want that. It motivates people in some many different regards and that’s what we need. I’m to the point where I’ve won a bunch of different championships and the only reason I want that championship is because I haven’t won it and I want it on this roster. I want it at our shows. I want it in every town because it’s going to make everybody better.
There still are many Roman haters amongst the wrestling-universe, but I’m sure most of them can agree that Roman going over Brock at SummerSlam is what is best for business. There is always a certain Monster with a certain briefcase to give the people of Brooklyn something to cheer for.
