Tonight Roman Reigns will challenge Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Title at SummerSlam. Reigns and Lesnar have been butting heads with one another for the past several months now. This will be Reigns’ fourth shot at trying to defeat Lesnar in World Championship competition.
In the lead-up to all of Lesnar and Reigns’ meetings inside the squared circle, “The Big Dog” has shown no fear towards the former UFC heavyweight champion. This is something that has impressed two-time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair.
He had this to say about Reigns during a recent appearance on Jim Ross’ podcast, The Ross Report:
“One of the things that’s cool about Roman is that he’s not afraid of Brock. You know what I mean? A lot of guys are and they can tell you they’re not all day long; but, Roman coming from his mom and his dad and his family – he wouldn’t be allowed in the house if he was afraid of Brock.
“You and I know that and know what that means. Me, when I had to wrestle Brock I wanted to kill you [Jim Ross] for even listening to Vince [McMahon] and book it.”
