In a recent interview with Keyshawn, JWill & Max, Roman Reigns discussed the continued rumors of a potential match with The Rock, what it’s like wrestling Brock Lesnar, and much more. Here are some of the highlights (via Wrestling Inc.):

Roman Reigns on the continued rumors of a potential match with The Rock: “I don’t think I necessarily have to say much. I think that body of work and that competitive nature that we all have within WWE or anybody who has ever stepped foot in a WWE ring, it’s just a battle to be on top of the mountain. It’s the ultimate alpha male showcasing who is going to be the big shark in the tank. I think with everything that I’ve done, with where I’ve pushed this persona, and the character work, and my claim, my rightful claim at the head of this table. Us being very close and like family, I don’t think there’s any other choice. If he ever wanted to get back into a WWE ring, I am definitely the guy he’s going to want to be facing off against.”

On what it’s like wrestling Brock Lesnar: “From just a purely athletic standpoint, the way I just talked about Big E and that bench-press and that type of strength, that’s how Brock is with humans. Sometimes you’ll have those workout warriors. Those guys who are super strong in the weight room but when they get on the field, it does not translate. They can move a barbell but they can’t move humans. Brock Lesnar is like a professional human mover. The guy can throw just about everybody out the club, it’s ridiculous. I’ve heard stories from all the way back when he was in his first run with the WWE before he went to the UFC. He was throwing around the Big Show and the Big Show is a 500-pound giant. I mean, completely throwing him on his head at will. Brock has to be one of the more impressive athletes I’ve ever been around.”
