Roman Reigns on WWE youth movement, family history

WWE star and one half of the WWE Tag Team Champions Roman Reigns made an appearance on the “Busted Open” satellite radio show this week discussing a number of topics including the youth movement in WWE and his wrestling family.

On the “youth movement” in WWE right now:

“I’ll say out with the old and in with the new. We are hungry; we are trying to do it. You get your chance, do your thing and expect a younger line to come after your pride and that’s what I’m doing. We are looking to take over the whole territory. We want to be the king of the mountain; you can look at it as harsh and be like: “Hell Yeah. Competition, we are going to get better” and if you don’t look at it like that then you might want to buy my shirt. But then again, you don’t have to buy my shirt, you don’t have to be a fan, I’ll spear you if you don’t like me, if you like me, if you love me, if you hate me, anybody can catch a spear.”

On his family always being involved with wrestling:

“It’s funny there’s a lot of fans that were fans through the attitude era, the Monday Night Wars but for me, I’m only watching WWE, I’m not watching WCW. None of my family wrestlers over there so it made me a very specific fan and I’ve only been into the one company and I was right because our company won but it was a very interesting childhood when you have that many males in your family that are superstars and successful and they did there things, they were making towns, they were all over the world, we literally have ten men in my family that have seen the entire world, it’s a very blessed feeling. I’m from a very prestigious family and my goal is to not only to represent it but to push it, push the level and raise the bar of what this family can do.”
