Roman Reigns Recalls Stephanie McMahon's Reaction To Being Speared At WWE WrestleMania 32
One of the biggest moments from the night
Roman Reigns has opened up on spearing Stephanie McMahon during the main event of WWE WrestleMania 32, saying that while the company's Chief Brand Officer 'wasn't ecstatic' about the bump, she was happy to be involved in such a spectacle.
Reigns challenged WWE Champion - and McMahon's husband - Triple H in the main event of WrestleMania 32 in 2016, defeating the Game to win the company's biggest Championship on the biggest show.
At the close of the match, Triple H avoided a Spear attempt from The Big Dog, who instead caught McMahon with the move, to a huge pop from the live crowd.
Speaking on a recent episode of the Sports Illustrated Media Podcast, Reigns said: "She took it like a champ. She did a great job, and I didn’t really pull any of the physicality out. She took a full-on spear, and that’s how you should do it in the main event of WrestleMania.
"She was obviously a little bit sore and not very happy about that, but I think everybody after a main event of a WrestleMania is ecstatic of going through that process, and the adrenaline rush of the performance and then also celebrating a phenomenal moment with the live audience, everybody watching at home.
"It was one of those things that I think she got over really quickly and enjoyed the success of being a part of that main event with her husband, Triple H. And then also I think, for her to be a part of that performance with her own father watching on, Vince McMahon, and seeing this whole spectacle go down and watching her be a part of the greatest live event in entertainment history, it was a special moment, I think for everybody.
"I’ll say she wasn’t ecstatic, but I think she was happy with the moment, to be a part of that."
