Roman Reigns' ESPN interview about Elimination Chamber

I thought it was interesting how out of kayfabe he went in this interview when talking about his co-workers.

Quote:
"You look at the dynamic of the match and we have a lot of cool characters and players in this match. A guy who is as special as Braun Strowman, maybe we can do something really cool and destroy something. Him and his character always seem to be like the safest vehicle to go down that route. Him and Vince [McMahon] always seem to come up with something new...

"An ambulance wasn't enough, then he flipped a semi," Reigns said. "The structure is so big. I'm sure there's something we can do creatively to come up with and make a huge moment and hopefully leave a great impression on Las Vegas and the Elimination Chamber match itself -- something that people will remember for a long time."
Quote:
Given the lineup and their past tendencies to create these moments, Elimination Chamber is expected to be much more than the usual pit stop ahead of WrestleMania. Reigns is thrilled to share the experience with these six. Here's how he sees each of them on a professional level.

The Miz - "He's an underrated workhorse. I'm extremely proud of the job that he does representing the company. The crossover reach that he has, and his ability to maintain the relationship he has with MTV [is great]. I think he's very underrated for the amount of work that he does and I'm grateful to have him in our locker room.

Seth Rollins - "That's my brother, in so many regards. Not only in character and TV world perspective, but in real life. We've gone through so much and we've seen each other progress and advance in life and it's really cool where we're at."

Finn Balor -"The cool thing about Finn, and a lot of the guys we have, but especially his story and just his background and the time he spent in Japan and the whole Bullet Club scene and everything, I would just say he's an extremely deserving competitor, and he's in the right spot. He's in the right light. I'm extremely happy with his progression as a character, and as long as he can keep Finn Balor doing what he's doing, the Demon is always going to be really cool. He's definitely a journeyman, but I'm happy he's continually escalating and evolving throughout this career."

Elias - "He's an entertainer, and a growing one. He's like a wrestler's dream, because you can send him out there and let him sing and play the guitar and make fun of the town and stuff like that. And he does a pretty good job at being cool, but still getting some heat. I'm looking forward to see him progress. He's definitely going to be a jack of all trades."

Braun Strowman - "He's a monster. It's for real. He's a big strong dude that can move. He's a good athlete, too. It's very rare you see men who stand 6-8, 6-9-plus, and they have to hitch to do what we do. On top of all that, he's not a big blockhead. He's a smart guy with a decent head on his shoulders where I think he's going to continue to progress and continue to learn because there's so many different facets and nuances that we do in the ring. He's definitely going to be a monster for us for many years to come.

John Cena - "He's like 'The Babe.' I don't think there's ever going to be anybody like Cena ever again. That's why when people compare myself to him now, I like to just think that it's a compliment. To be able to have the longevity -- that's the word for Cena -- longevity. It goes to speak to his worth ethic and his passion, but I just don't think it's going to be able to be done again. He's one of one. There will never be a guy who can hold up and be that durable because he competed 15-plus years on an elite level. I've been doing it a few years now, and I can already feel the tolls, so there's a lot of respect that has to go his way because to do it at the top for that long is unprecedented.

Re: Roman Reigns' ESPN interview about Elimination Chamber

There's that "journeyman" word again.

He really doesn't seem to know what it means

He's using it to mean an experienced worker who's done a lot of different jobs to hone his craft, he's obviously not using it as a put down.

That's why I said he obviously doesn't know what it means. If he did know what it actually meant and was still using it, it would just make him a dick

He didn't mention Balor being in Apollo 55 so fuck him.

It just pisses me off still to this day how Vince just decided that Roman would be the dude. It’s supposed to be who draws the most, but they just have Roman everything. That’s why he will never be over as a face. Vince never used to do that. The fans always decided. Something happened to where he decided to handpick somebody instead.
