WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns was interviewed on “The Michael Kay Show” to promote tonight’s WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view..
Reigns was asked, “Have you been worried over the last year when you’re performing because of the pandemic happening? Obviously, you have an immune system that’s compromised because of cancer. Did that go through your mind at all?”
“Absolutely. I mean it’s something that still to this day we have to take very seriously, we have to be very precautious, and always keep myself in the right situation. WWE, along with myself, we’ve kind of created a traveling bubble in order to keep me as isolated as possible. It’s not easy. It’s not a situation like the NBA was able to do last year where they did the whole league all in one area. We’re a traveling act and we’re constantly moving around. These private flights and getting to the bus in every town, it’s an expensive piece of business, but we would rather spend the money to stay safe, continue to keep health a priority, and then also still deliver within the performance as well and give the fans what they deserve.”
“John Cena and The Rock have had phenomenal movie careers. You’ve dipped your toe in it. You’re a handsome guy, great voice. When do you make that full-time leap?”
“We’ll have to see. I think there’s going to be some moves made here pretty soon. There’s always these speculations, these contract talks. All that pushing, that’s my business. People who can dive deep enough, I’m sure they can uncover enough stones to figure out the timeframe, but that’s something I definitely want to dabble in, I want to gain more experience, and I want to use these tools that I’ve learned. WWE has done so right by me. They’ve given me so much, and placed so many great blessings and opportunities in front of me. I just had to capture them. I just had to grab that ball and run with it. I like to think that along the way, I just picked up so many skills and experienced so many different things that are going to help me because at the end of the day, we all know how this works. This is a young man’s game. You can’t fall down your whole life. You have to get to a point where you can transition, where you can connect and create new, fresh, evolved content for your fan base and your supporters. I think I have the ability to do that. At the end of the day, it’s about getting into that game, being thrown into that fire and seeing how you do. I have a pretty good track record with being thrown in the deep end, and if that’s what happens in Hollywood, I’m looking to swim.”
