Roman Reigns Promo 

Roman Reigns: Miami, Acknowledge Me. Tomorrow night, myself and Brock Lesnar defend our titles at Madison Square Garden. And you already know what I’m gonna do. I’m gonna smash whoever steps up and I’m gonna send them to the back of the line just like I’ve been doing the past year and a half. But, you see, Brock’s defense is where it gets interesting. You see, not all of us want to see Brock with that title. As a matter of fact, not all of us want to see Brock even make it to WrestleMania, do we?

Just look at last year’s WrestleMania. A week before, I said I was gonna smash them, I’m gonna stack them and I’m gonna pin them, 1-2-3, and what did I do, huh? So this year, I’m gonna call my shot again.

At WrestleMania, in the biggest main event of all-time. I’m gonna smash Brock Lesnar, I’m gonna pin Brock Lesnar, I’m gonna stand over Brock Lesnar. And with about 5 million dollars of fireworks going off, I’m gonna hold the WWE Championship, I’m gonna hold the Universal Championship, and I’m about to raise them both over my head. And Brock’s gonna have no chance, but to acknowledge me. Acknowledge Me! Me! Me! Me! He’s gonna acknowledge me. At WrestleMania, Brock Lesnar will acknowledge me.
