Mike Jones (who?) interviewed Roman Reigns in-studio prior to this week’s Raw taping to promote Sunday’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view. Below are the highlights:
On the Money in the Bank Championship ladder match: “With this story, we’re trying to climb. I’ve obviously worked with ladders and sticks and all the different toys. But climbing the ladder and being 10 feet in the air, that’s a whole different story. And like I said, I’m not a top rope guy, but at the same time you can take advantage of the ladder, use it in your advantage, but when it comes down to it you have to climb. It’s going to be interesting, I’m prepared, I just don’t care. If you’ve ever looked at my Twitter, you’ve seen my back. Pain, who cares.”
Should RAW and Smackdown be split again: “It worked before didn’t it? And I think with that dynamic too it adds to the storylines and the competition and things like that. And I think there a whole PPV called Bragging Rights just based on that concept, so I think it works. If they’re going to do it, who knows?”
On Daniel Bryan’s Recovery: “I’ve heard through the grapevine and the boys and stuff that he’s doing better. He’s at home and I guess obviously Brie’s helping him out a good bit which is really cool on her behalf to put her career on the side to make sure her husbands fine. I wish him the most comfortable and speedy recovery.”
