Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated was with Roman Reigns recently. Reigns spoke to him about what Vince McMahon said to him after he returned from fighting leukemia during the start of this year. Vince told him to enjoy and just make a slow return.
"Now that I'm back, I'm enjoying every moment," Reigns said. "That goes back to what Vince McMahon told me. Vince said to me, 'Be present.' He said, 'Be there with your family and friends, and absorb everything you can.
Maximize all that you can.' " Reigns will also be part of the upcoming Hobbs and Shaw movie. He will be working alongside his cousin The Rock. It will be later in the summer. Reigns stated that he found himself full of a new spirit and energy when he found out that he was going to work with one of his family members.
The former WWE Champion is delighted to work alongside the Great One. "Creating with Dwayne, who is starring and producing the film, and going all-in with him felt good on so many levels," Reigns said. "Hopefully everyone takes to it, enjoys it, and gets lost in it."
He also stated that The Rock is interested in Reigns future and he spends time with him. "DJ still lights up when we talk about my career and different bookings. There was a light in his eyes every time he was talking about my future," Reigns said.
