Edge welcomes us and says he had a lot of choices to make. He talks about WWE Champion Drew McIntyre defending his title inside the Elimination Chamber, and WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns defending his title at Elimination Chamber. Edge says there are 13 potential opponent and he has to pick someone for WrestleMania 37. This is the biggest decision of his career.

The music interrupts and out comes WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns with Paul Heyman and Jey Uso. Cole hypes the Chamber match to determine Reigns’ opponent on Sunday, and then Reigns’ title defense later in the night.

Reigns and Edge stare each other down as Reigns slowly walks down and stops at ringside. Fans chant “you suck!” as they enter the ring. Reigns says Edge does not have 13 to choose from because there’s only 1 and that 1 is about to be a six-time WrestleMania main eventer. Edge can pick a main eventer, or he can pick the main eventer. Edge talks about how he saw Reigns lose his cool last week, which is rare. Edge realized Reigns needs him to be in the WrestleMania 37 main event. If Edge faces AJ Styles or anyone else, then that’s your main event. Edge sees Reigns’ insecurity.

Edge gives Reigns some praise but says he’s cracking under pressure, and Edge hasn’t even focused on him yet. Edge asks if Reigns really wants him to test his armor and focus on him. Think about that long and hard, is that what you want? The music interrupts and out comes Sami Zayn with his documentary film crew. Sami starts ranting about WWE disrespecting him every week but to be disrespected by two of the biggest stars, that’s something else. Edge is acting like Sami can’t make it to WrestleMania, and Reigns is so worried about Edge he’s not seeing the other threats in front of him. Sami is in the ring now, ranting to both Edge and Reigns. Sami wants his moment right now. Read more

Last Man Standing Match for the WWE Universal Title: Kevin Owens vs. Roman Reigns

At WWE Royal Rumble, Kevin Owens challenged Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship in a Last Man Standing Match. This bout marked the third time Owens has challenged Reigns for the title. The match started as a brawl, and Reigns caught Owens with a Superman Punch early on. Likewise, Owens hit a pop-up powerbomb.

royal2021digitals-4.jpg royal2021digitals-6.jpg royal2021digitals-2.jpg royal2021digitals-22.jpg

Reigns drilled Owens with a Spear at ringside to take control. He then hit Owens with the steel steps. “The Prizefighter” bashed Reigns head against the ThunderDome screens to turn the momentum in his favor. Both men brawled high up in the ThunderDome. Owens wisely attacked Reigns’ knee with a steel chair. But Reigns threw him off the stage and sent the challenger crashing through a table.

Owens crawled to a workout ring backstage, and Reigns ran him over with a golf cart. The challenger got back to his feet, and Reigns angrily unloaded on him. Owens power bombed Reigns onto a table and hit a Frog Splash to send him through it. He then dove off a forklift onto Reigns and sent him crashing through another table. A Spear through the entrance stage gave Reigns some breathing room.

Owens got some handcuffs and chained Reigns to a lighting post while he was lying down. Reigns couldn’t climb to his feet, so he pulled the referee and slammed him into the post. Paul Heyman then uncuffed Reigns. “The Head of the Table” locked in a guillotine hold and choked Owens out. Owens couldn’t stand up, so Reigns won the match and retained his title.

 

Winner: Roman Reigns

By Jimmy Traina Jan 29, 2021

WWE universal champion Roman Reigns appeared this week on the Sports Illustrated Media Podcast with Jimmy Traina and responded to the Undertaker’s recent claim that today’s superstars are “a little soft.”

“I think the product is a little soft,” the Undertaker (aka Mark Callaway) said on the Joe Rogan Podcast. “There are obviously guys here and there that have an edge to them, but there’s too much pretty [and] not enough substance I think right now.”

“In that era of guys, too, those were men,” he continued. “You go into a dressing room nowadays, and it’s a lot different.

“I remember walking into my first real dressing room, and all I saw were some crusty f—— men. Half of them had guns and knives in their bags. S— got handled back then. Now you walk in, there’s guys playing video games and f—— making sure they look pretty. It’s evolution, guess. I don’t know what it is, but I just like those eras, man. I liked when men were men.”

Earlier this week on After The Bell With Corey Graves, Bill Goldberg backed up the Undertaker’s stance. When asked on the SI Media Podcast what he thought about the older wrestlers’ trash talk, Reigns didn’t hold back.

“We do the same job,” said Reigns. “It’s not like the bumps got any worse or any better.”

It’s strange. I really feel like he misspoke. Because Mark is a really good guy. He’s very knowledgable. Obviously, he has a ton of respect for the business. Goldberg is just Goldberg. Who cares? But he’s talking about guns and knives in the locker room. Come on. You guys travel just like we did. Did you really get that stuff through security? TSA was just letting everything happen back then?

Reigns also expressed his desire to continue working with Paul Heyman even in an off-screen capacityRoman Reigns’ spot as WWE’s top superstar was met with strong fan resistance for years, but the “Tribal Chief” is currently enjoying the best run o his career. Since making a surprise return at SummerSlam, Reigns has found new life — and critical acceptance — in portraying a heel character.

On Sunday, Reigns will continue within the run by meeting Kevin Owens in one of the featured matches on the annual Royal Rumble pay-per-view card. Owens and Reigns have battled for months, with Reigns consistently getting the better of Owens both in and out of the ring. Owens has recently managed to turn the table, forcing Reigns into a Last Man Standing match at the event. Speaking with CBS Sports, Reigns explained what it is that has made his storyline with Owens so compelling.

“I think if you just looked at it on paper, he’s the exact opposite of me,” Reigns said. “We look different, we carry ourselves differently, we have different backgrounds. It’s just completely different presentations, and there’s something very interesting about polar opposites going at it and competing against each other to see who is the best. But, from the intangible standpoint, what KO brings to the table is his own way and own package — his relentlessness to be great.

“He has a passion to try to capture the next level and that, as performers, is something you have to have. The audience is looking for those stars who are trying to do that and be mega-stars and achieve the unattainable while pushing each other to the next level. We’ve beat the crap out of KO for months, and he gets up with a smile on his face wanting more. He’s a guy who, no matter what he’s put through, enjoys the upper echelon of the wrestling business and being able to tell very detailed, intricate and sophisticated wrestling narratives. That’s something he’s been craving his entire career. And to be able to do it in WWE after going through so much and probably having to swallow that “no pill” a lot through his career with a lot of people trying to tell him no. That’s something that he really showcases — that relentlessness to keep getting up, keep going and keep fighting.”

One of the early twists in Reigns’ new character was the addition of Paul Heyman as his advisor. Heyman had spent years at the side of Brock Lesnar, continuing his lengthy career as a figure with tremendous swagger, having built ECW into a force on his own creative genius before taking on a managerial role on-screen as well as a creative force behind the scenes in WWE.

With Reigns, Heyman’s swagger is largely gone and he is usually seen desperately looking to please Reigns and fearing the potential wrath of the universal champion. Their off-screen relationship is wildly different, and Reigns said the relationship has quickly built to the point where he can’t see a place in the future where he does not have Heyman by his side — even if they’re no longer paired on television.

In-Ring Segment: Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman

Reigns says he hears Kevin Owens is going to deliver a message to him tonight. No, he’s not. We aren’t going to see Owens tonight because Reigns says so. Owens and Adam Pearce think they got one over on him but they didn’t. Reigns says “card subject to change” is for losers. Pearce claims to be hurt, every part of Reigns’s hurts. Maybe Reigns should say the same. Maybe he’s too hurt from carrying this company for years.

Pearce walks to the ring and says this is too much. Reigns calls Pearce Owens’ bitch. If Pearce is Owens; bitch, he most certainly is Reigns’ as well. Heyman snickers in the background.

Graham GSM Matthews | January 21, 2021

There can be little doubt that WWE’s Roman Reigns is among the most compelling characters in all of wrestling right now.

His heel turn over the summer has resulted in arguably some of the best work of his career. In bringing to life his vision of what he wanted The Tribal Chief to be, he has rejuvenated Friday Night SmackDown and taken on all comers to his Universal Championship.

Reigns lives in Tampa, Florida, and he is expected to have a major role in the two-night extravaganza that will be WrestleMania 37 at the city’s Raymond James Stadium in April. Before then, though, he’ll have his hands full with Kevin Owens at the Royal Rumble on January 31 when they wage war in a Last Man Standing match.

In addition to confirming the site for this year’s installment, WWE also announced over the weekend that WrestleMania 38 will emanate from AT&T Stadium in Dallas in April 2022 as well as WrestleMania 39 taking place at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles in April 2023.

Reigns is no stranger to The Show of Shows, having competed at almost every installment in the last decade since making his main roster debut. However, with the roll he’s on right now, it’s possible that we have yet to see the best of The Big Dog in WWE, specifically on a stage as grand as WrestleMania.

In an exclusive interview with Bleacher Report, Reigns took the time to talk about WrestleMania in Tampa, his heel run, how he’s reinvented himself, if he has any acting aspirations and more. Check out the complete audio of the interview on the next slide and stick around for the highlights.

Thoughts on WrestleMania Returning to Tampa This April

WrestleMania 36 was originally slated to happen in front of a sold-out crowd at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa last April, a show that was supposed to see Reigns challenge Goldberg for the Universal Championship and likely walk out with the title once again.

Of course, the COVID-19 pandemic caused WWE to shift gears and hold it at an empty Performance Center instead. The Big Dog pulled out of the pay-per-view days beforehand as a safety precaution and stayed on the sidelines until making his much-anticipated return at SummerSlam in August.

It means the world to Reigns to have another opportunity to headline at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ stadium on April 10-11 this year after the unfortunate circumstances robbed him of that WrestleMania moment last year.

“One of the biggest things about WrestleMania and WWE is the relationship we have with the individual communities that we locate in,” he said. “It was really tough for us to miss it this past year in Tampa. Obviously I didn’t perform, but it takes a pretty big effect on the talent and the company when there isn’t a stadium involved packed full of fans. A week full of events and interaction with the fans, that’s what makes it so special.”

Stephanie McMahon confirmed to TMZ Sports on Tuesday that WWE plans to have fans in attendance at the event. And WrestleVotes later indicated it could be up to 25,000 people in the stadium each night.

Although this year’s WrestleMania won’t be as packed as it normally is, it will be a significantly more exciting experience for viewers than if it went down in the WWE ThunderDome. Reigns hopes that even in following all the proper protocols, The Show of Shows will still be a special occasion.

“This year, during a pandemic, it’s going to be what it is,” he said. “We definitely have to stay safe, but to be back in Tampa and to be able to get it done this year and to be able to have that opportunity to be hosted by Tampa Bay and use the Buccaneers’ stadium is really neat.

“Hopefully we’ll be able to get some kind of attendance, whether it’s following the same type of protocols as the NFL or any other sports league,” he continued. “Hopefully we can get some fans in there and keep everybody very safe. That’s always the most important thing.”

What Is His Favorite WrestleMania Match to Date?

Reigns is no stranger to headlining WrestleMania, having been in the main event of The Show of Shows four straight years from 2015 to 2018. All of those marquee matches were against high-profile opponents in Brock Lesnar, The Undertaker and Triple H.

Also at the event, Reigns has dominated as one-third of The Shield and defeated Drew McIntyre after a long layoff. Of the many ‘Mania matches he’s had since in 2013, he still regards that first face-off with Lesnar from WrestleMania 31 as his favorite.

“I’d probably not want to do it again because it was brutal,” he said. “I was a much younger man back then. But that match, to me, was an instant classic unlike, really, any other sports-entertainment match.

“I think if you’re a grown man and you’re on the fence about wrestling and you’re like, ‘I don’t know, this is choreographed. This is like soap-opera stuff, right?’ I would suggest you watch that match. It just depends who’s doing it. There’s a little bit of something for everybody. I think the physicality Brock and myself brought to the stadium that night, it’s hard to match that, especially from the full-time perspective.”

Many fans would agree the match was a masterpiece and excellently executed from start to finish. The atmosphere, the electricity and the circumstances surrounding it made for the perfect storm, along with Seth Rollins’ surprise Money in the Bank cash-in at the end.

Despite Reigns’ loss, he went on to win the WWE Championship from Triple H the next year. He also became one of only two men to defeat The Undertaker on The Grandest Stage of Them All at WrestleMania 33.

There’s no telling what will be in store for the San Francisco 49ers fan when WrestleMania 37 comes around.

“That’s why they call it WrestleMania, because the biggest matches and moments happen in the biggest stadiums in front of the biggest crowds,” Reigns said. “They’re all special. Triple H, Undertaker, they’re all great. Read more

Roman Reigns Always Wanted To Be Heel 1/21/2021
By Ryan Satin |FOX Sports WWE analyst

WWE Universal champion Roman Reigns has been on the run of his life since returning over the Summer as a heel (aka a bad guy, for you non-wrestling fans).

The character overhaul reinvigorated Roman’s WWE persona and validated his position at the top of the card in a new way.

For years, fans, wrestling legends, critics, even the wrestler himself felt like he’d be more compelling on-screen in a villainous role, and over the past six months we’ve learned that we were all even more right than we realized.

“The Head of the Table” character is perfect for Roman.

How did the long-awaited turn come about, though?

Reigns spoke openly with us about it this week in an interview covering how long he’s wanted to be a bad guy, why the pandemic era was the best time to take a gamble on it and how he’s changed the dynamic to his matches/in-ring storytelling in order to connect more with the viewers at home, instead of fans in an arena.

He also revealed his thoughts on when a potential WrestleMania match against his cousin The Rock makes the most sense.

RS: First I want to discuss the main thing we’re here to talk about and that is this weekend’s announcement regarding WrestleMania. 

How do you feel about WrestleMania 37 being relocated to Tampa, where last year’s show was originally scheduled to take place?

REIGNS: I just think it’s awesome. 

I think the commitment the WWE has to the communities that we pinpoint, those locations, means a lot to the economy and what we do for a city. Obviously, it was terrible being in a pandemic, going through these COVID times, but to not be able to put on a WrestleMania for Tampa was tough and to have to do it in the PC was – I wasn’t there – but it was quite different for everybody else, I know.

So, to be able to go back and bring that experience to the Tampa Bay area … I’m not exactly sure how it’s all going to go down as far as the attendance and all that. I know they’re still working that out, safety and keeping all the protocols up to par. Beyond that, obviously, is gonna be number one. It just feels good being able to go back to Tampa Bay and say we’re going to be able to do it.

RS: Totally. You mentioned the ticket availability thing and safety protocols and how they said all that will be announced in the coming weeks, but what will it mean to you and all the other performers if fans are able to come back to this show in some capacity. What will it mean to you to have all that energy back from the fans?

REIGNS: It would mean everything, to be honest.

It’s been tough. My whole career has been based off of reactions. Everything is due to interactions. That’s kinda always been my measuring stick.

Even when the fans hated me, it was still louder than everybody else. Everybody else can complain. They can bitch and complain about, “Oh, I don’t get this opportunity,” or “I should be like this,” or “I should be here,” “I should be the main event.” But, when it came down to it, my reaction was always way louder than everybody else’s.

There’s only one guy. Cena. That’s it, for obvious reasons … and he’s no longer here any more.

That’s the difference is we don’t have that. So, you have to be able to pull out different tools. You can’t be a one trick pony, and I feel like people called me that quite a bit during the first part of my career. Limited move set, what have you.

Being in this time, in these pandemic times, you gotta be able to pull out different layers to your performance, different attributes and show different tools. And that’s what I’ve done over the past six months is show a different side of me as a performer. Completely change the dynamics to my matches and the way people perceive my storytelling in-ring.

Added so much more dialogue; to now everybody cuts a promo while they’re wrestling … and they can’t! Because I’m the one that’s doing it at the top level.

So, when it gets compared to what I’m doing … I cried in the ring, for Christ’s sake! To be able to tap into these emotions and to be able to put on these type of performances, I just feel like I’m doing it at a different level and I’ve had to do that because I don’t have that security blanket of the reactions being really loud.

Hell, if I ever got to a point where it’s like, “Man, I don’t know what I want to do,” all I gotta do is sit still and look at the crowd and they’ll make some kind of noise, you know what I mean?

But, I don’t have that vehicle there any more. So, you have to really be smart about how you put on your performance nowadays.

RS: Without fans there, I feel like you guys have all had to really rethink the craft as a whole in general for all those reasons. You’re not making a person in the crowd pop anymore, instead you’re doing stuff that’s more focused on the TV viewer.

When you were away for a little while, did you kind of reconstruct how you were going to think when you returned to the ring and how you’d do things differently? Because, like you said, everything about you has been just a totally different character. 

You changed everything. The nickname, you’ve added more moves, you talk in the ring loudly now. Like you said, you cried once. Was this something that subconsciously you thought about while you were away to figure out how you were going to apply it to wrestling once you came back?

REIGNS: Yeah, I watched a couple of the shows. I did not follow it thoroughly. I tried to use as much of the time to be with my family and just really focus in and be present here at home, but on a few of the shows that I saw, I was just like, “Man, this is trash.” Like, you know what I mean?

And that’s me, from the very top, thinking this because I always want to be way better than everybody else. This is no disrespect to what they were doing. They were busting their ass working really hard.

But, for me, I was like, “Man, I just know when it’s time to pull my trigger, I know exactly what I want to do. I know exactly the kind of stories I want to tell and the different tools I want to utilize in order to connect with our crowd, our audience that’s watching at home.”

But, I knew it was all based off of emotion. I knew I had to be emotionally connected to what I was doing to be able to wear the skin of the character that I’m trying to convey to our audience. So, that was the most important thing is that I could completely focus in and concentrate 100% on what I was trying to do and the emotions that I was trying to convey throughout my narratives.

RS: This weekend WWE also confirmed WrestleMania 38 will take place in Dallas, Texas and WrestleMania 39 will happen at SoFi Stadium in L.A., instead of 37 as planned. 

One match that people want to see at one of those three WrestleManias is you versus the Rock. What do you think about all the chatter over that possible match and fans talking about how badly they want to see it happen?

REIGNS: I think it’s great. I think any time our fans are buzzing on a matchup, or buzzing on an event, I think that’s important. That’s what it’s all about is that water cooler talk, that fantasy warfare. Creating that escapism for our audience to discuss and debate and criticize and bring positive energy towards.

So, I would definitely think this one would be the one to wait for – and they might have to wait for it. Especially due to the lineup that you just spoke about.

This year, obviously we’re in Tampa. Next year, we’ll be in Dallas, and then we’ll go to Hollywood for [WrestleMania] 39, and I think it just makes sense. He’s the biggest movie star in the world. He’s the biggest box office attraction for the big screen out there.
