Roman Reigns praises Daniel Bryan, but issues a threat to Seth Rollins in recent interview

Published 4 Comments

Roman Reigns has issued a threat to Seth Rollins, saying if the WWE World Heavyweight Champion decides to knee him in the face like he did to John Cena, he will break his knee with his forearm.

According to Wrestlingnews.co, The Powerhouse recently spoke with Brian Fritz of SportingNews.com to discuss winning the Royal Rumble this year, being booed by the fans, if it was Daniel Bryan’s fault, and the altercation between Rollins and John Cena.

Reigns praised Bryan for being so connected with the WWE Universe, and says he doesn’t think he was booed for winning the Royal Rumble because of him.

He said: “I think, you know, it has a lot to do with how over Bryan is. To this day he’s just a phenomenal performer. I think everybody who’s ever been in an arena — you don’t even have to be in the ring with them — you have an appreciation for them. Even if you’re not into him, you still have to appreciate him and it was just the fact of what was happening is he was the most over guy we had.

“He was drawing people and they loved him. And the whole ‘YES’ movement was on fire. But at the same time, as a company, you have to continue to build other stars and build a future. I’m not a believer in that it’s just one guy. I believe in the team.

“I believe in having a great cast of good people and strong men around us to maximize the product. It just can’t be one person. I think it was a combination of me not being Bryan and just the Internet thing, like all the cool kids were banning against the jock.

“I don’t know. It was weird. But I think it just became a cool thing to boo me and it still happens a little to this day. It blows my mind but I’m still going to keep grinding and getting better. Anybody that says I have progressed and gotten 1000% better, you’re lying. You’re a bold faced liar.”

When he was asked if he was backstage watching the incident between Rollins and Cena, he replied that he actually at home taking a week off, and issued a threat to the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

He said: “I was actually at home taking a few days off. I wasn’t at Raw that week but it was funny because I’m sitting down on my couch, flipping through the channels and I was like oh, the main event is on, I’ll check that out.

“Literally two minutes after I put the match on, Seth just whacked him in the face with that knee. As soon as I saw it, I was like that’s a finish right there. All you have to do is show a replay and that’s as devastating a move as any other ones.

“He definitely has a new weapon in play but if he tries to throw that knee in my face, I’ll break his knee with my forearm.”
