Roman Reigns spoke with the media on Tuesday inside of SoFi Stadium, the home of WrestleMania 37 which is still being built, and talked about being ready to reclaim the title he never lost.
While promoting WrestleMania returning to Los Angeles next year, we asked Reigns about this morning’s announcement that he’d be in the upcoming Elimination Chamber match alongside Braun Strowman, Daniel Bryan, Shinsuke Nakamura, King Corbin and Robert Roode.
“The time is now,” he replied. “I’ve never been in better shape in my life. I’ve never been more prepared. I’ve legitimately been groomed since I was just a little boy for this moment. There’s nobody in the world that can handle this like I can. I’ve been through the fire and back. Like I said, man. This is my time. 2020 is mine. Hopefully we can knock it out of the park and take it all the way back here to SoFi [at WrestleMania 37].”
“There’s so much work to be done on this road to WrestleMania and we haven’t even gotten there yet, so there’s still a lot of story to be told and hopefully I can be the one that comes out in the end.”
Should he win the match, here’s what Roman Reigns had to say in regards to which Superstar he’d rather face at WrestleMania 36 – Goldberg or “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt:
“I just want my title, to be honest. Nobody took that title from me. I had to relinquish it due to circumstances. So I just prefer my title. From a completely honest standpoint, I would much rather face “The Fiend.” He’s busted his ass all year long for it. No offense to Goldberg, I think he’s a great performer, he’s a great Superstar, but I’m into the future right now and helping out the guys who are going to be in the locker room with me. And there’s no doubt “The Fiend” has put a lot of work into what he’s done. As we all have. So like I said, man, it’s my time now. We’ve had fun with that Funhouse, but it’s time to bring it home.”
