WWE 24 WrestleMania 33 - Roman Reigns

– Here are some highlights of Roman Reigns from the recent WWE 24: WrestleMania Orlando special that aired on the WWE Network… (transcript via wrestlinginc.com)…

On The Reality of The Match: “This is the part where it’s weird. Pinch me. It doesn’t feel real. Am I still sleeping? We’re about to go out in front of over 70,000 people and I’m going to be able to share the ring with The Undertaker. I’m going to live with this for the rest of my life.” Reigns said, “you don’t get many moments if ever in your life, so this is the third gigantic moment for me, but this is going to be the biggest.”

On His Respect For The Undertaker: “It’s going to be so emotional.” Reigns explained, “if I win it might feel like a loss. Do you know what I mean, just because of who I’m in there with? Just the respect that I have and everybody that’s in this doing it around the world. They all have respect for The Undertaker.”

Reigns’ Thoughts on Undertaker’s Career: “For the past 25 years, regardless of it was 20 people watching or you were on the biggest stage of them all, he had to be The Undertaker. In order to be as successful as him, you have to take every single day as it’s WrestleMania and that’s the hardest part.”

His Thoughts on the Match:”This whole situation,” Reigns said, “there’s just no way to prepare for it. This is the top of the mountain as far as sports entertainment. He is that guy. That’s one of those moments where it’s like, ‘that’s it.’ It’s like heartbreaking. It was his yard, but it’s mine now and I swear to God that I’m going to look after it.”
