During a recent appearance on FOX Sports’ The Buzz with Jimmy Traina, WWE Superstar Roman Reigns & WWE Divas Champion Nikki Bella talked about SummerSlam 2015, Divas Revolution, Roman Reigns being attacked by a fan at WWE Live Event, John Cena suffering a broken nose and more.
During the interview, Roman Reigns noted that he was told at the WWE Hall of Fame 2015 that he wasn’t winning the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 31. On being asked about a possible appearance from The Rock at SummerSlam 2015, Reigns had the following to say: “I wanna tell you, but I don’t want to give anything away.”
In an interview with Miami Herald, Roman Reigns had the following to say about the incident where a fan hit him with a Money in the Bank replica briefcase at a WWE Live Event:
“I was confused at first. I thought Bray hit me in the head with the kendo stick. So immediately I was like, ‘Aww man. You’re about to get it, brother. Aww, you’re about to get your [butt] whooped,’ but then I looked down, and I could see the briefcase. So then I’m trying to piece this thing together.
“If you see the video, you see me stand up to where I kind of got a little bit hot. Once I was able to process the situation in a matter of seconds, I knew what needed to be done, and our security team took care of it. It was just a bad choice by a 31-year-old man, throwing briefcases at entertainers while they’re busting their [butt] for you. Everybody was on top of it. He was escorted out, briefly after, and luckily for me, [the briefcase] was plastic, so it didn’t hurt, but it’s scary. What if it was something that could have hurt me. Hit me in the eye.
“I’m a character and a sports entertainer and a wrestler, but I’m also a father and a husband and a provider. So for me that’s scary, because I’m just going out there to put on a good show and provide for my family and take care of my future, and if somebody takes that away from me… For what? For 10 seconds of Internet fame. That’s tough to deal with. That’s hard to process.”
