Roman Reigns has won the Royal Rumble in the past, but he has also been the last man eliminated as well. To him, that is a very important role as well.
While speaking to The Herd, Roman Reigns discussed his history in battle royal matches, especially his tendency to be in the final moments of the match. He said that it is important to put the winner of a battle royal match over, and that is something he takes great pride in as well.
“The Rumble man, it’s special for me. I’ve won it before in the past, I’ve been in the top two, you know, the second guy, I guess you would say the loser of the match, you know, at the very end multiple times,” Reigns stated. “But that’s a great responsibility, to see that winner, to be able to push him forward to the biggest event of the year, WrestleMania, to put him on that path. It’s a great responsibility as a performer.”
“And I’ve had some really good individual matches as well, along the way. But I’m looking to do something special, and change the game in two nights.”
We’ll have to see who wins the Royal Rumble this year. Roman Reigns has not been entered into the big match because he is defending his Universal Title against Kevin Owens in a last man standing match. That is also going to be a very important place on the card as the Tribal Chief continues.
