Roman Reigns’ WWE career finally took off thanks to his sensational turn heel and the start of his collaboration with Paul Heyman. During his long tenure in the Stamford-based federation, the former Shield member has captured the heavyweight title three times, twice the Universal Championship and once each the Intercontinental Championship, the United States Championship and the WWE Tag Team Championship (paired with friend Seth Rollins).
The ‘Tribal Chief’ turns out to be the 17th wrestler in history to have completed the Grand Slam, as well as winning the 2015 edition of the Royal Rumble. Appearing in the latest edition of the ‘Michael Kay Show’, Roman analyzed his future prospects.
Many believe that Reigns is destined to follow in the footsteps of his cousin The Rock by landing in Hollywood.
Latest news on Roman Reigns’ future
“I have no idea what’s going to happen. I will have to consider all options very carefully to ensure a successful future.
There is always a lot of speculation related to contracts, but these are not matters that concern me” – said Roman Reigns. The 36-year-old from Pensacola does not rule out a future in film: “I would love to gain more experience in the acting industry.
I feel my wrestling career can be a boon in Hollywood, I have learned a lot of things. I’ve improved a lot along the way and I’m looking forward to using my skills in other areas as well. I just have to wait for time to take its course” – he added.
During a recent interview with ‘WWE Deutschland’, Natalya revealed a particular anecdote regarding the current Universal Champion. “Last year, I had a brief conversation with Roman Reigns backstage and he revealed to me that Bret Hart had been his role model when he was very young.
He told me he had enormous respect for Hart, so much so that he recognized him as one of the best entertainers in the history of this business.” It is certainly not the first time that Roman has praised the work of ‘The Hitman’ both in and out of the ring.
