Roman Reigns is slowly making his way to the top of the WWE mountain, and before we all know it, he will be the new face of WWE.
Reigns got his start in the business when he signed with WWE's developmental territory in Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) before it was morphed into NXT. He made his main roster debut as a member of The Shield alongside Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose. Shortly after the disbanded, Reigns went on to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship as well as winning the Royal Rumble. He is currently expected to be a part of the Fatal Four-Way match at SummerSlam against champion Brock Lesnar, Braun Strowman, and Samoa Joe this weekend.
Recently, Reigns joined the Off The Board podcast to promote the upcoming title match and was asked about a possible dream match against John Cena down the road - which "The Big Dog" believes will happen (quotes via Wrestling Inc.):
"I think so. If you're here for the right reasons -- and this doesn't just go for wrestling, this is anything, this is what drives our world -- you wanna be in there with the best. To say John Cena is not one of the best of all time is asinine.
"He is. He's a 16-time heavyweight champion. There's only two men in the whole world that can say that. So to be able to share the ring with him, to do a big fight with John Cena, I'm all for that.
"I came here for a reason. I didn't come here to blend in. I came here to stick out and that's what I've done. I'm not gonna back down to anybody I said this a long time ago: I don't care who's at the top. I'm stepping up.
"I think I've proved that over the years. I think, what a great way to honor both of our careers and what we're trying to do and the way we try to drive this train. What better way to do it than in the ring, one on one."
