Roman Reigns: Brock Lesnar is going to have to 'German me into the stands to get me out of the Royal Rumble'

We're now just a number of days away from the Royal Rumble pay-per-view (PPV) at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida, on Sun., Jan. 24, 2016, and that means WWE stars are doing media appearances. That means there are plenty of worthwhile quotes to go around but Roman Reigns gave one to DC 101 that stood out to me.

"I'm not just in there with one guy, like you said. I'm in there with 29 other dudes who are trying to take what's mine and I'll be damned. Screw that, I'm not going to be the biggest loser. They're going to have to knock me out and drag me out of there. Brock's going to have to German me into the stands to get me out."

Here's the thing: You can bet WWE is planning on having Lesnar eliminate at least one guy via German suplex over the top rope and out of the ring. It's also entirely possible he's strong enough to will do exactly what Reigns says he'll have to.

The prospect of seeing such a thing is a better sell for the Royal Rumble than what WWE gave us on Raw this week.
