Roman Reigns gives his side of the story.
Earlier this week The Rock took to Instagram to share a video of Roman Reigns accidentally throwing his club and hitting a cameraman while filming "Hobbs & Shaw." As The Rock told it, he and Reigns weren't supposed to release their clubs during the fight scene, but Reigns got caught up in the moment and couldn't help himself.
Speaking to E:60, Reigns discussed the on-set incident.
"I did my first movie. The star of the movie, some of you may know him as Dwayne Johnson. Some of you may know him as The Rock. I just know him as Dwayne. He's my cousin, family. Being the new guy, I thought I was gonna have a regular fight scene. But they told me, 'you're gonna have a fight scene with Dwayne,'" recalled Roman. "We built it up and we finally get to the day [of shooting the fight]. We're moving in perfect chemistry. At the end of any fight scene, you have that cool superhero pose. We get eye-to-eye, we throw our clubs. Right-back, I know I'm the man. Oh my God....I'm not the man. I hit the cameraman directly in the face. He takes a huge spill. I sprint over to him. I'm apologizing like crazy. Everyone is screaming. I pick up [the cameraman], and no one is looking at me anymore. They're looking at Dwayne. Only in Dwayne fashion. 'Roman, I don't even know why I brought you on this project. I think I gotta fire you now.' Luckily, the cameraman was a trooper and accepted my apology."
Reigns has been on a media tour this week promoting "Hobbs & Shaw," which hits theaters on Friday. In a recent interview, he revealed that The Rock didn't even know he was reading for a part in the film. You can view his comments by clicking here.
