Roman Reigns talks about possibly wrestling The Rock and replacing John Cena

WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns spoke with The Times of India to promote this past weekend's WWE Tour of New Delhi. Here are the highlights.

On The Rock possibly challenging him for the title at WrestleMania:

"I expect The Rock would want to keep his pretty face intact for Hollywood. He better stay away from me in the ring. But honestly, anybody who wants to get into the ring with me and take the world title, just try!"

"It's a great honour. John Cena has been the standard-bearer of professional wrestling for the past 10-12 years, and to follow in his footsteps is a great opportunity. I just want to give my best and represent my family and my people.

"It's unfortunate that John couldn't be here because of the injury and we all hope he will be fit again soon. I for one, can't wait to square off against him. But then, you have to remember that I'm the reigning world heavyweight champion. There is a certain weight to that, a certain standard. Like John used to say, 'The champ is here and in the end, that's all that matters!'"
