Roman Reigns recently stopped by ComplexCon in Chicago, IL, where he spoke with Complex about his turn in Universal Picture’s “Hobbes & Shaw.” Reigns starred alongside his cousin Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson &  Jason Statham in the Fast & Furious spin-off.

During the interview, Reigns talked about the difference between acting on film, and cutting a promo in a WWE ring.

“But when you’re in a live environment where people can react and do anything that they want, they can throw you off your game, say things like ‘you suck,’ and then you think ‘oh god I do suck! What do I say now? I forgot.’”

Reigns also spoke about the demanding nature of weekly WWE programming, and how the physicality of a match effects one’s ability to cut a promo afterwards.

“You already know, if you get into a fight, you’re going to blow up. Check out the Internet, right now. Two men right now are dying. They’re breathing hard. We wrestle for 15, 20, 30 minutes, and then you still have to talk and be presentable at that point. It comes with a lot of practice and conditioning to be able to get to that point and a bit of grooming as well.”

Finally Reigns mentioned that’s he’s been “bitten by the acting bug.”

“I’ll say I’ve been bitten by the acting bug, but I think with what just happened to me this past year with my health and being pulled away from the ring, I’m always going to have that love. That process that I just explained about being live and as raw as possible. If something happens, you can shake and bake and make it what you need it to be. There’s something about having that ad-lib and free range that, when it comes down to it, it’s live. Ain’t nobody stopping you now.”
