Even by using roman reigns’ standards, the final two weeks were almost unbearably difficult. No longer handiest did the previous wwe champion go through a brutal assault at the arms of braun strowman, he suffered the lack of his brother, matt “rosey” anoa’i. In spite of this, but, reigns will nevertheless compete against strowman at wwe payback this sunday, and he spoke with wwe.Com to discuss the nicely-wishes he’s acquired, how his circle of relatives is keeping up and whether he thinks he’s as much as going through the monster among men this sunday in any respect.
WWE.COM: It’s been a tough two weeks for you personally and professionally. On the personal side, WWE.com sends its condolences to your family. How are you doing and how is everyone else doing?
ROMAN REIGNS: Right now, it’s one of those situations where it’s a lot of mixed feelings. When you live in a big family, it’s always great to be able to come together, but to have to come together to send off a brother — and not only was he my brother, but in our family, even when you’re cousins, we’re all so close that we feel like brothers. That’s the type of connection we have in our family. It was an extremely sad weekend, and it’s still really tough. Everybody’s grieving. But to see our family come together and have a hundred-plus family and friends come together to celebrate my brother’s life really meant a lot. It just continually picks up our family and keeps us moving on.
Payback, 2017, and any chance I get to go in that ring, I’m representing [my brother].
