Brock Lesnar praises Roman Reigns, says he gets 'goosebumps' thinking about WWE WrestleMania 38 match

Lesnar spoke to the New York Post ahead of Saturday's house show at Madison Square Garden.

In an interview with the New York Post, Brock Lesnar praised Roman Reigns ahead of their match at WrestleMania 38.

Lesnar vs. Reigns in a winner-take-all title unification match will headline WrestleMania 38 night two on Sunday, April 3. The winner of the match will unify the WWE Championship and Universal Championship.

Lesnar told the New York Post that he gets goosebumps when thinking about the match.

“I see a f*cking superstar,” Lesnar said about Reigns “I see [a] guy who came into his own and is a real threat as [a] person and as a character. … Roman has the It factor, has had it. It’s exciting to me. I get goosebumps just thinking about this match.”

Before WrestleMania, Lesnar and Reigns will both have title defenses at WWE's house show at Madison Square Garden tonight. Reigns has been Universal Champion since August 2020, while Lesnar regained the WWE Championship at Elimination Chamber last month. Involvement by Reigns and Paul Heyman had caused Lesnar to lose the title to Bobby Lashley at January's Royal Rumble.

Lesnar spoke about his storyline with Heyman during the New York Post interview, saying that he can't wait to get his hands on Heyman and “see his fat little jowls bouncing around by whips of my hands.”

"I step into that role, and I want to kill Paul because he f*cked me over, right?” Lesnar said. “This is a serious angle for me, and it’s a passionate angle. That’s why I think the product is so good.”

This will be the third time that a Lesnar vs. Reigns match has headlined WrestleMania. They also main evented the show in 2015 and 2018.
