Before They Were Stars: Roman Reigns in a College Football Video

If you follow World Wrestling Entertainment right now, you’ll know that they’re attempting to push Roman Reigns as their next big superstar. Born Joe Anoa’i, Reigns hails from a famous Samoan-American family which has spawned numerous professional wrestlers and is cousins with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Unfortunately, even though WWE is trying to push him as their next big babyface, the fanbase is currently booing the shit out of him. Anyway, before embarking on a professional wrestling career, Reigns attended Georgia Tech and played for their Yellow Jackets football team. He is featured in this 2006 promotional video for the team and can first be seen at the clip’s 1:16 mark, celebrating a tackle on the field before he is shown weightlifting 500 pounds.
