On Jan. 25, The Rock announced that Roman Reigns would be joining him in "Hobbs & Shaw," the upcoming "Fast & Furious" spin-off. Reigns will be playing the part of Hobbs' (The Rock) brother in the film, which will reveal the origin story of Hobbs.
Appearing on the Sports Illustrated Media podcast, Reigns discussed his time on the movie set.
"I've always been the guy who has stayed on the live events. A lot of my co-workers have been able to jump that fence and be on a movie set. I was asking The B Team (Curtis Axel & Bo Dallas) about the movie they did with WWE and getting all the details and what the experience was like and the etiquette on set. Just a bunch of mark questions," joked Reigns. "It was neat to go through the experience and see how their magic is made. And to take my experience from live performance and television and use some of it and learn. It gave me a head start to understand the terminology and the method behind their madness. It was awesome to see Dwayne in his element and the world he's built. The really cool part was to be part of a film that highlights our culture, the Polynesian way of life."
Axel & Dallas were part of The Marine 5. Reigns filmed his cameo in "Hobbs & Shaw," during his four months away from WWE, getting treatment for his leukemia.
“Hobbs & Shaw” is currently slated for an Aug. 2, 2019 release.
