Roman Reigns Talks WWE Co-Branded PPVs Ending, WrestleMania

Roman Reigns is firmly entrenched as a main event player in WWE. His scheduled could very well pick up after WWE announced all pay-per-views would be co-branded moving forward.

When speaking to CBS Sports, Reigns admitted that there are positives and negatives that he'll personally experience due to the changes, but thinks ultimately it will make the quality of on-screen programming improve.

“I think, like anything else, it has its pros and cons. It’s gonna increase the work schedule as far as pay-per-views, but if you don’t wanna perform in a pay-per-view, then what are you doing here? I think it’ll also keep storylines fresh. It’ll allow us to continue to dot all our “i’s” and cross all our “t’s” because we’ll have more weeks to continue those storylines and these rivalries, and we’ll be able to have more time to carry those out," said Reigns.

Reigns' immediate PPV future is Elimination Chamber and WrestleMania. He was asked about the possibility of facing Brock Lesnar and/or Seth Rollins in a rematch of their impromptu main event situation years ago.

“Yeah, we definitely have that. I think what puts validity behind this whole situation is we had a barnburner of a match. It’s one of my favorites that I’ve ever … Well, let me take that back. It’s not my favorite, because it didn’t feel good. But going back and seeing it and the outcome and the story and the reaction and just the rollercoaster ride that the crowd took with us, it was one of my finer days at work. There’s always gonna be that animosity to wanna finish the job. Not only towards Brock but towards Seth for interrupting that. The key is to be able to get to that point and deliver and capitalize. Hopefully I’ll get the shot. We gotta go through the Chamber on Sunday. We gotta make it out of that unscathed and then take a ride to Suplex City. It sounds a lot better than it really feels. Trust me," said Reigns.
