Roman Reigns is set to face Brock Lesnar in a big title match at WrestleMania for the second time in his career on Sunday, and he’s been taking shots at Brock’s part-time status for weeks now.
Brock Lesnar’s part-time status has been a hot topic ever since he returned to WWE years ago, and Roman Reigns recently told The New York Post that part timers are keeping the full-timers from reaching their potential.
“So for me it’s very simple: Not only will it help fuel this fire between Brock and I, it will get some truth that needs to be said a little bit. Some people need to hear this stuff because this has kind of been a thing. Brock’s not the only part-time guy. But there are a lot of full-time guys that are never gonna, as a collective, reach our potentials if we are dominated in this portion of the year by part-time guys.”
He went on to say that it makes a big difference when the champion is actually in attendance at live events, and he also said that the numbers won’t lie after WWE hits the road following WrestleMania.
“Whenever you have a champion who is on every single live event, every single house show, every single appearance that’s scheduled, it changes numbers,” he said. “It’s true. I’ve seen it before. The tour we had after I beat Triple H in Dallas [at WrestleMania 32] the numbers didn’t lie and it’s not going to be any different [this time].”
