WWE: Roman Reigns speaks out about WrestleMania 31 disappointment

Published 1 Comments

WrestleMania 31 was a remarkable event, for several reasons.

WM31 Firsts

We got to see Sting wrestle in the WWE for the first time ever - even if he did lose to Triple H in a match that was nothing more than symbolism for the WWE crushing WCW again.

And there was the first ever Money in the Bank cash-in at a WrestleMania, as Seth Rollins sprinted down the ramp to cash in on Brock Lesnar and become WWE World Heavyweight Champion. It turns out that Roman Reigns was pretty disappointed with that.

Reigns appeared on The Buzz with Jimmy Traina - alongside Nikki Bella - to promote SummerSlam and the "Answer The Call" charity campaign.

During his interview, Reigns was asked about losing in the main event of WrestleMania in front of that giant San Francisco crowd. Reigns said it hurt but added that he was proud of how far he had come in such a short space of time.

""Obviously, if you don't want to win that match, something's wrong with you," Reigns told Traina.

"But for me, the most important thing was to go out there and capitalize on the moment. Live in it.... I know that's what I did. I'm proud of that match I'll hold that match against any in the history of wrestling. I really will," he went on to add.

Was The Outcome Changed?

An interesting tidbit was revealed however, where Reigns let it be known that he found out that he would be losing to Lesnar the night before the big event.

""I found out the night before after the Hall of Fame," Reigns said when asked when he found out he wasn't winning the WWE title.

Does this mean that the outcome of the match was changed then at the last minute? We already know that Seth Rollins only found out that he was winning the title halfway through the show. After his match versus Randy Orton he was told to get ready to face Lesnar and Reigns to win the title. 

So, was the original plan for Brock Lesnar to leave WrestleMania 31 as the WWE Champion? That would be intriguing to find out.
