Roman Reigns: "I Treat Every Match As Though It's WrestleMania"

"The Big Dog" is ready to claim his yard.

For the fourth year in a row Roman Reigns will be in a big time match at WrestleMania as he walks into the Mercedes-Benz Superdome to challenge Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Championship. Lesnar has bested Reigns over the course of the build to this match and has given Roman quite the number of beat downs. Reigns expects nothing less from his meetings with "The Beast Incaranate" as he spoke with Sky Sports about what's to come tomorrow night.

"It's rough," he said. "He's a lethal athlete. He's one of the greatest combat sports fighters of all time and it doesn't change in our genre of entertainment. He brings that physicality to the squared circle just like he does in the UFC octagon," he said."It's up to us to handle that and I think I showed the whole world at WrestleMania 31 that I can withstand Suplex City and take everything Brock Lesnar has to offer.There have been other occasions when I've stepped in the ring with him and I know exactly what to expect."

The former 3-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion expressed his love for the wrestling business. He shared how he "treats every match like its a WrestleMania match" and it does not matter the size of the crowd or the building he is perfoming in; those in attendance will always get the very best of Roman Reigns

"I treat every match as though it's WrestleMania," he said. "Whether we're in the tiniest little town on a Friday night or we're at The O2 in London, every match is a huge match for me, because I have the respect for the performance. You never know what's going to happen out there and sometimes it's the smallest things that can get you. I have a deep appreciation to wake up every day and I always say that I'll do the rest. As long as God lets me step foot in the ring then I'm going to put 100 percent into it. I'm willing to do this, to grind it out, because I love this. WWE is my team."
