Roman Reigns Interview 

Michael Cole: First and foremost, thank you for joining us as you prepare to defend your championship a week from tomorrow at the Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event. Now, last week on Friday Night SmackDown, we saw the reemergence of an icon.

Paul Heyman: Come on, don’t call me an icon, I’m just special counsel to The Tribal Chief.

Michael Cole: I was actually talking about Goldberg.

Paul Heyman: You’re talking about Goldberg?

Michael Cole: Yes. The Hall Of Famer. The man who once won 173 straight matches in WCW, went on to beat The Immortal Hulk Hogan to win the WCW Championship, that, Goldberg.

Roman Reigns: 173 straight matches, wow, that’s pretty good. If I was in WCW, everyone would be winning, because they’d still be in business. Next question. Hurry up, let’s go.

Michael Cole: Goldberg has twice won that Universal Championship. And let’s talk about what Goldberg accomplished a few years ago at Survivor Series, when he defeated “The Beast” Brock Lesnar in 86 seconds.

Roman Reigns: We’re still talking about this guy? Brock Lesnar is old news. The farmer, look, he’s old news, he’s in my shadow, old news. Does anyone even care about him?

Paul Heyman: I don’t care about him. I love my tribal chief. Who wants to be introduced that way anyway. Wow, the maniacal ego that guy has.

Roman Reigns: Two time Universal Champion. Nobody cares. Do you know why? Because I’m here now. I’m the greatest Universal Champion of all-time. Nobody has done the things I’ve done over five years. And if that guy came back around, I’d smack him in the face and get him out here. Do you understand? Next question.

Michael Cole: This match between you and Goldberg was supposed to take place two years ago at WrestleMania, it never happened. Finally we get this match next Saturday. Is there any added pressure on you?

Roman Reigns: Not at all. I’d said all of the pressure is on Goldberg. Because two years ago, he might’ve had a chance. Everything is different now. The whole world has changed. I’ve changed. I’m the head of the table now. Your Tribal Chief is untouchable, Cole. I smashed everyone. Like I said before, the greatest of all time. I’m going to smash Goldberg. As a matter of fact.

Paul Heyman: Ladies and gentlemen, what you’re about to hear is not a prediction, it’s a spoiler.

Roman Reigns: I’m gonna Goldberg, Goldberg.
