Roman Reigns on his post-match emotions
"When I went through gorilla [position] and he was still in the ring, I was just tucked off from the ramp into this little tiny holding area where people do last-minute [preparations] before a match," Reigns remembered.
Roman Reigns continued, "I just sat in one of these little chairs and I cried. It was such an emotional overload, for bad reasons and for good reasons too. As a perfectionist, I think Mark can agree that we had such an awesome story.
If it had all went perfectly ... aw man, it would have been so fire. But the opportunity to main-event a WrestleMania with The Undertaker, I was so grateful. But the perfectionist in me could not let it go. It ate me up. It still bothers me a little bit.
I remember my cousins [The Usos] and I skipped out on the after-party, and I didn't get back to the hotel until like 2 a.m. because we drank all night and talked. I probably shed a few more tears that night too. I had so many hopes and aspirations to take advantage of that man's time and do right by him, and I just felt like I failed that situation.
And it just lit a fire under my ass. I don't think I had a bad match since." The Undertaker has had matches against some greatest opponents and athletes. He has faced the likes of The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Mick Foley, Triple H, Shawn Micheals, and his own brother Kane.
He has contested in some breathtaking and intense bouts. Matches like hell in a cell, Inferno match, Buried alive match, Casket match. Watching him for 30 years, one would expect Undertaker to be this great performer since day one.
