Roman Reigns has finally opened up about his WrestleMania 31 main event match against Brock Lesnar. He seized some time out on episode 52 of Sam Roberts’ Wrestling Podcast where he says he was not informed whether he was actually supposed to walk out of WrestleMania as WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Neither did he ask anyone responsible for such decisions if what he did was appropriate or not.

Reigns also added that he didn’t tell Lesnar before the match that he was going to hit him as hard as he did. He actually thought he was going to be pulled out of WrestleMania 31 main event after being booed at this year’s Royal Rumble.

“[I] didn’t talk to anybody pretty much until the day of [WrestleMania 31]. I mean, I had an idea of what we needed to do and things like that, but I didn’t have a finish or anything like that.”

Moreover, Reigns claimed that he truly believed he was going to be taken out of the WrestleMania 31 main event in favor of crowd favorite Daniel Bryan.

“I just felt like Bryan and his momentum and it was just going to happen to me and then we went into [WWE] Fastlane [2015],” Reigns admitted. “I don’t believe in just one guy. I don’t! I’m a team guy. I’m a football guy. That’s the background I come from.”

When asked whether he talked to Lesnar prior to their WrestleMania 31 match about not pulling any punches, Reigns said that he never told Lesnar that he was going to hit him as hard as he could.

“You don’t talk about that. It’s WrestleMania. It’s Brock Lesnar,” Reigns continued. “He threw me around like a rag doll just like he does and I hit hard and I hit often just like I do. It was really neat and if we never do it again, I’m happy with that. I’m happy with that. My body finally feels okay from that, but it took a while, man. It really did.”
