“Now that I’m back, I’m enjoying every moment, That goes back to what Vince McMahon told me. Vince said to me, ‘Be present.’ He said, ‘Be there with your family and friends, and absorb everything you can. Maximize all that you can.'”
Apart from this Roman Reigns also talked about working with Dwayne Johnson while playing the role of his brother in Johnson’s new film Hobbs and Shaw.
