The Royal Rumble is one of the WWE's biggest pay-per-views of the year, arguably only third to Summerslam and the granddaddy of them all, WrestleMania.

Well, the Rumble is this Sunday and, for the first time ever, the WWE World Heavyweight Championship is being defended in the big match itself.

Roman Reigns is the man defending the strap - entering from the number one position - and The Big Dog spoke with Scott Fishman of Channel Guide Magazine to promote the pay-per-view.

Fishman asked Reigns if he was ready for the monolithic task ahead of him and the Samoan superstar seemed exceedingly confident, which he has every right to be.

"If there is a match I'm prepared for experience-wise, it's the Rumble," Reigns said. "The battle-royal-style match has been good to me. In the past two years, I have collectively been in there an hour or so, if not more. I have the elimination record for not the actual match, and I've won it before. So I like to think I have a lot of good things going for me."

However, this Sunday is completely unlike any Rumble that the former Shield member has been in before. With his title on the line, Reigns will have a massive target on his back, and everyone will be desperate to dump him over the top rope.

"You just never know what can happen. You never know who is going to be in the Rumble," Reigns went on to add. "It's 29 other guys. This event has a history of great debuts, comebacks, surprises, things that will make you laugh, things that will make you jaw drop. It's going to be a great night hopefully for me."

Reigns isn't the favorite to win the match - that's currently Triple H - but you can count on him making it to at least the Final 4 come Sunday.
