WWE Superstar Roman Reigns of The Shield recently spoke to Press of Atlantic City.
Q: How did The Shield become main event players so quickly after debuting in the WWE two years ago?
A: We brought in an insane work ethic with us. We all trained down in the developmental system together, so the powers that be knew what kind of competitors they were bringing up. If there’s something we want, or we need, we’ll fight for it, and I think that’s pretty apparent with what we’ve done in the first couple of years.
Q: What’s your thoughts on the recent WWE return of Hulk Hogan, who will host “WrestleMania XXX?”
A: He’s such a big name, and he’s a legend. He was a part of the process that laid down the foundation for what we have now. To be such a huge part of our history, it’s important that he’s a part of our present, and a part of our future.
Q: What is the atmosphere of a “Road To WrestleMania” event like?
A: We’re in the home stretch to WrestleMania, so there’s no time for games. There’s no playing around. Everyone’s trying to get themselves just completely polished before the biggest sports entertainment show on earth, so everybody is going to bring their A games. Everybody wants to be sharp and perfectly set for Mania. We’re coming in there to wreck shop, to tear it down, and where it starts is for these live crowds on these WWE live events. There’s no days off for a WWE superstar, especially once you get into the home stretch to WrestleMania.
