• Roman Reigns Reveals What He’ll Do If Brock Lesnar Shoots On Him At WrestleMania 34, Reveals If He’s Lesnar’s Friend Or Not
During a recent appearance on Cheap Heat with Peter Rosenberg, “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns talked about his upcoming WrestleMania 34 main event bout against Universal Champion Brock Lesnar, if he’s a friend of Lesnar, what he’ll do if Lesnar shoots on him & more.
Below are the highlights:
On Lesnar’s current standing with the fans:
“It’s a little bit different for him, right now, especially where we are at and the stuff I am bringing to light about him and his character and work ethic, I think some of the fans are taking it negatively. For the most part, Brock Lesnar is a cool dude, you can’t deny the fact that he is a big, jacked up brother who comes in and throws people on their necks.”
On if he’s a friend of Brock Lesnar:
“I’ve had interactions with him, I’ve had history with him. We had our main event match at WrestleMania 31 and we had a few different Four-Ways and Triple-Threat matches like that where other characters are involved. It’s a different dynamic. Every time you are in a situation like that you do get to spend a little more time with somebody. Yeah, on his own time he seems like a cool dude, I don’t know him that well, but we’re not friends or anything.”
On what he’ll do if Lesnar shoots on him (like Lesnar did with Braun Strowman at Royal Rumble 2018):
“If he throws two at me I’m throwing three back. My dad was a big man. One of the easiest things about wrestling Brock Lesnar is that there isn’t much thinking about it. It’s just all physical stuff, and I’ve been doing physical stuff since I was seven years old. I played Division-One Football at Georgia Tech, so I’ve seen and been around some of the best athletes in the world.
What we do is a different form of entertainment and athleticism, but you still have to be an athlete in order to do what we do all year round, you have to keep yourself in that shape so, I’m never scared to be able to push that button, let’s go, if I have to protect myself, I’m more than capable, no doubt.”

• Strange Interest In Title Picture On SmackDown Live
On last week’s episode of SmackDown Live, WWE’s YouTube video of the segment between WWE Champion AJ Styles & Shinsuke Nakamura (which is SmackDown Live’s WrestleMania 34 main event) drew only 655,000 views.
On the other hand, the SmackDown Tag Team Title picture, that featured a match between The Bludgeon Brothers and the team of SmackDown Tag Team Champion Jimmy Uso & New Day’s Big E, drew almost 2.4 million views.
This is quite strange considering how the Styles-Nakamura feud has been a fantasy of the IWC ever since Nakamura’s main roster debut.
