Roman Reigns has been at the top of the mountain for the last two years. The Trible Chief hasn’t been pinned in nearly two years and looks to retain his undefeated streak against the beast Brock Lesnar himself.
The two are set to collide in the main event of WrestleMania 38 on April 3 (Sunday) in Dallas, Texas. WWE have booked their clash as the title unification bout winner-take-all match.
WWE recently uploaded a video of Reigns (who will be putting his Universal title on the line) training hard for the match. The three-minute clip shows Reigns lifting heavy weights and putting in all the hard work.
The Head of the Table also has some strong words for the WWE Champion. Reigns talks about god mode in addition to telling viewers that gym is the only place that doesn’t acknowledge him.
“What is God mode? God mode is 200 IQ plus world-class athlete, equals God mode. It’s not a switch, it’s years and years of work. It’s the journey, and I think that anybody who has reached the top of what they do, they understand what it takes that allowed me to get to this experience where I’m just harder than everybody.
“Today, we’re in Westin, Florida in the House of the Athlete. I love the gym, the gym is the only place that does not acknowledge me. It does not care who I am, the weights, they don’t lie. You can’t pick ’em up? Then you can’t pick ’em up and that’s going to push you every single time. It’s what I continue to do.
“For some athletes, what you do in the weight room doesn’t translate to the field. Everything that I do in the weight room will translate to the ring: my explosion, my power, my strength, my conditioning. It doesn’t matter how long the match is, I get stronger and stronger as it goes.
“The second comes like that,” Roman said with a snap of his fingers. “I still believe in the old school, the nitty-gritty barbells, dumbbells, pick up the weight and control the weight, own the weight. That’s what I do, compound lifts, deadlifts, power cleans, bent over rows. These things, they’re classic lifts.”
At another point during the video, the reigning and defending WWE Universal Champion talks about putting an end to arch rival Lesnar once and for all and cementing his place as the greatest WWE champion of all time.
“Every type of athlete that’s stepped on any stage, these are the things they’ve tapped into and been proficient at and it’s no different for me. I’m the smartest shark in the ocean here, and I’ve learned how to handle Brock.
“I learned every false step that I ever took in that ring with Brock. I re-analyze every little detail you could possibly think of and the ones you didn’t even think of because you’re not as smart or as experienced as me. And then I continue to put the work in.
“There’s gonna be a little sliver of credit that goes to Brock Lesnar when all the record books are written because his hillbilly, farm boy mindset, he’s sitting there thinking, ‘Oh, I’m about to make history and we’re about to re-write the record books.’ He’s going to be in the record books, but he’s just a supporting player to the #1 guy, the guy that’s on top of the call sheet, Roman Reigns.
“I’ve manifested the outcome that I see fit for the Tribal Chief, the outcome that I see fit for The Head of the Table, for my bloodline. The one that’s going to support us for generations to come, and at WrestleMania, that God mode that nobody else can reach, it’s going to come easy.
“This is going to be my sixth WrestleMania main event and this is going to be the one that I beat Brock Lesnar and solidify my run as the greatest WWE Champion of all time. There’s no arguments, no debates, it’s factual. It’s title vs. title, this is the biggest WrestleMania main event of all time and I’m ready, let’s go.”
Reigns versus Lesnar is the biggest storyline going into WrestleMania this year. Will the Trible Chief slaughter the beast once and for all, or will the WWE Champion be one again the undisputed WWE champion?
