• Roman Reigns Defends Goldberg & The Undertaker
During a recent interview with ESPN, “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns discussed The Undertaker vs. Goldberg match from WWE Super ShowDown and defended both Legends.
Below is what Reigns said:
“First of all, it was so cool. It was unfortunate what happened out there in the desert [with Goldberg in Saudi Arabia].
It was a tough situation. It was hot as hell out there. Those guys aren’t in the ring all the time. You have to have your wrestling legs under you. Even when I miss a few live events, I can feel it. This is one of those things, the more you do it, the better you are, the better off you are, the better you feel in the ring.”
