Roman Reigns, the commanding Tribal Chief of WWE, has consistently captivated audiences with his outspoken demeanor and undeniable presence. Despite being lauded as the pinnacle final boss in the wrestling realm, he has not been impervious to criticism. With that said, Reigns admits he tries to forget the 2015 Royal Rumble.

Assisted by The Rock, Roman Reigns emerged victorious in the 2015 Royal Rumble, positioning himself for his inaugural WrestleMania main event. Despite The Rock’s support, Reigns faced a chorus of boos from the Philadelphia crowd, leaving both men visibly puzzled by the reaction.

Reflecting on that moment during an interview for his upcoming A&E Biography, Roman Reigns expressed his recollection of being booed historically. He described the experience as having the worst soundtrack playing over his moment, tarnishing the occasion. Reigns admitted to trying to forget the Royal Rumble in Philadelphia but found solace in the prospect of it coming full circle at WrestleMania 40.

“I was booed, historically. You think about these moments. You dream about them, and the moment that it actually happens, it’s like they’re playing the worst soundtrack of all time over your moment, ruining your party. That’s how the Rumble in Philly felt. I try to forget Philly. I try to forget the Royal Rumble,” Reigns said. “There’s only one positive, and that’s the fact that it’s going to be able to tie all the way back around at WrestleMania 40.”


Roman Reigns is set to headline both nights of WrestleMania 40 in Philadelphia. On night one, he will team up with The Rock to take on Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins. Then, on night two, Reigns will defend his WWE Universal Championship against Rhodes in the main event. Only time will tell if Roman Reigns will walk out of WrestleMania 40 as the champion in the end.
