Roman Reigns Says He's Been Bit By The Acting Bug But Loves Performing For A Live Audience

Roman Reigns on the art of performing.

Over the past couple of decades, WWE has lost its two biggest stars -- John Cena and The Rock -- to Hollywood. And Roman Reigns is already headed down that path. Reigns is set to star in "Hobbs & Shaw" alongside The Rock, giving him his first taste of the silver screen.

Speaking to Complex, Reigns discussed the differences between performing on set and stepping in front of the WWE Universe.

"Cutting a promo [is harder] I would say. It was a different vibe being on set and performing in front of co-workers," explained Reigns. "When you're in a live environment where people can react and do anything they want, they can throw you off your game. The live performance and dealing with the simultaneous reaction is different. The cool thing about film, and the way Dwayne [Johnson] explained it, 'everyone here, is here to make you look special.'"

Even though Reigns has his foot in Hollywood's door, that doesn't mean he's ready to jet to Tinsel Town.

"I've been bit by the acting bug but with what's happened to me over the past year with my health, being pulled away from the ring, I'm always going to have that love. There's something about having that adlib and free range, and [being] live. I'm still in love with that aspect of the business and performing. But I would say, there's a future [in acting] for sure."

"Hobbs & Shaw" will open in theaters this Friday. Ahead of the premiere, The Rock took to Instagram to share a behind the scenes story. You can view the story by clicking here.
