Roman Reigns revealed during an interview with the Sportster, he is fully committed to WWE for two more years but could see himself transitioning out as he gets the closure he needs.
While promoting his partnership with Lipton Brisk and the new "Cans of Whup Ass" that are specialized cans connected to the film release of Hobbs and Shaw, Reigns took some time to answer a few questions connected to his being part of the film.
Among talking about the process and how he was able to take part while out of WWE with a leukemia diagnosis — thanks to the magic of filmmaking — Reigns answered our questions as to whether or not this film was a one-off or if fans of his could expect more films in the future?
Reigns responded, "I definitely see more projects and films in the future, for sure. But I think, where I'm at now, they will come a little more sparingly." Reigns said he didn't want to speak in absolutes when he can't predict the future but he explained that right now, he wants to be in "that ring" and wrestling.
He did say, more specifically, "How I feel physically, where my health is, I want to take advantage of the next couple of years and just really maximize my WWE career and give back to the company, to the guys in that locker room as much as possible." He said, if he could take on a few side projects, he'd like to and it would be awesome.
He did add, as he transitions out of the ring where his body just can't hold up, "that's when I think we can really start to dabble and go on a fuller schedule as far as films."
What This Means
Reigns is thinking about his future beyond WWE as a wrestler, but not yet. He said, "Right now, I'm so fully engulfed in wrestling and continuing to tell the story my family has told for decades now, I want to put a few more layers on the foundation that we have, as far as our history and our legacy." Once he does that, Reigns says he'll have the closure he needs and will move on.
