• The Hurricane Comments On His Moment With Roman Reigns Backstage At Royal Rumble 2018
During a recent interview with Sporting News, The Hurricane talked about his moment with Roman Reigns backstage at the Royal Rumble 2018 PPV, Royal Rumble match appearance and his elimination by John Cena & more.
Below are the highlights:
On his moment with Roman Reigns backstage:
“He does favor Rosey a lot. Anytime I see him I’m always going to think of Rosey. He was a person I cared about a lot and was really saddened by his passing. I didn’t even see the photographer there. They captured that really good moment, and I just have to thank them for that.”
On his Royal Rumble 2018 match appearance:
“That reaction kind of caught me off guard. I had never worn that cape in WWE. That cape is kind of inspired by Randy Savage. I have it hooked to my wrist so that I have a full wing span. I planned to spin around in a full circle and let everybody see the whole cape and everything, but I couldn’t hear my music anymore.
I heard ‘Stand back,’ and the crowd was so loud that I couldn’t hear my music. I thought they cut it off. In my mind, if they cut it off, that means I have to get my a$$ in the ring. So that’s why I cut my entrance short.”
On being eliminated by John Cena:
“If I was going to duplicate that spot, it wouldn’t have worked with anybody else. It had to be him. He had some reservations about throwing me out. John Cena is still a babyface regardless of how people react to him, so he had some reservations about throwing out the superhero.
But talking to him, I said my character thinks he’s King Kong, so he’s going after Godzilla. Then he shook his head and grinned. He was so gracious and went along with it. If he says no, there’s nothing I can do, so I give a lot of credit and respect to John.”
