Roman Reigns: Brock Lesnar Wants To Join My Island Of Relevancy In WWE
Lesnar returned at WWE SummerSlam 2021
Roman Reigns believes Brock Lesnar confronted him at the close of WWE SummerSlam 2021 because he wants to join his 'island of relevancy'.
Lesnar made a shocking return to WWE, 18 months after his last appearance, at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas last Saturday, staring down Universal Champion Reigns following the conclusion of his main event match against John Cena.
Having built himself up as the biggest act in WWE over the last year, Reigns feels Lesnar has targeted him because being in the same conversation as the Tribal Chief is the quickest way to become relevant again.
Speaking on WWE The Bump, Reigns said: "He wanted to get the best look possible at what's going on here, the most dominant Universal Champion to ever do this thing. He sees the island of relevancy just like John Cena did. He's coming with a farmer/butcher outlook as opposed to being the Hollywood guy.
"It just goes to show all this work and foundation that I've been laying down with the Bloodline, continually showing that we're number one. There ain't nobody...they want to talk about it and it's really just to put themselves in the conversation with me to amplify everything, but there ain't anybody out there that can compete with what we're doing.
"Between me, my cousins [The Usos], the wise man [Paul Heyman], we're putting together greatness right now. We're raising the bar and lifting the standard. Brock Lesnar, like everybody else in this industry, they want to be part of that."
