Quotes by way of Arab News:
“It’s the best feeling to be here in Saudi Arabia. Whenever you go to a new country for the first time and they see you for the first time it really escalates that excitement, it makes it so special. It’s unbelievable coming to Saudi Arabia. We are always trying to break new ground, to move forward, break new ground, we are always trying to do better. I think this is a great example," he continued, "We are trying to show Saudi Arabia to the world, that’s a big thing. We're trying to be there for progress, to get better as human beings, to promote equality. Anything you can do on that level, it’s greater than you can do in the ring,” said Roman, at a press conference in Jeddah."It’s so gratifying. There’s no real way to describe it. Each time I get thrown down, any time I’m in pain, and I get that special energy and emotion back from the ground it makes it so worth it. I can’t wait to get to the stadium. When that curtain goes back and you see thousands of fans, when you hear that reaction, that emotion, that’s when you feel like superman.”
