• Roman Reigns Going After The Universal Championship?

“The Big Dog” Roman Reigns went undercover on the internet with GQ Sports and answered fan questions. One of the question was regarding the Universal Championship (which he relinquished last year) and Reigns gave an interesting response.

Below are the highlights:

On his match with The Big Show from Extreme Rules 2015 being his best:

“I’m pretty proud of the majority of them. It’s special because it wasn’t a title match. It wasn’t like this critical stepping stone for me, but I just enjoyed it and I did learn a lot from him. It was with the Big Show. It was a Last Man Standing match and it was in Chicago.

It was one of those matches that I think the expectations were low and we just knocked it out of the park. We had Chicago going nuts. We tore that place apart. So that’s one that I think a lot of people wouldn’t think of, that I do hold dearly to me. And it’s cool to be able to be in there with a giant, too.”

On why he’s not fighting for the Universal Championship:

“Stay tuned.”

On why some fans hate him:

“Hate. That’s a… it’s such a fickle word. I don’t think they hate. I think some wrestling fans like to be negative and they like to exercise those demons. Why not exercise them against a stud like me. I can handle it, I’ve got broad shoulders.”
