Ahead of making his big-screen debut this summer, Roman Reigns (Joe Anoa’i) will be making an appearance on a Nickelodeon series next month.
Reigns will appear on an episode of Nickelodeon’s “Cousins for Life” that is set to air at 8:30 p.m. Eastern time on Saturday, March 2. Reigns “plays Leaf’s neighbor Rodney who is angry that Leaf’s pet pig dug up his vegetable garden. However, Stuart, Ivy, and Leaf discover there’s more to the story and come up with a plan to save their pig.”
It was revealed last month that Reigns has a role as Hobbs’ brother in the Fast and the Furious spinoff “Hobbs & Shaw.” Hobbs is played by Reigns’ cousin Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who stars alongside Jason Statham in the movie.
After his role in the film was announced, Reigns wrote about his battle with leukemia and how spending time with Johnson in Hawaii filming the movie has helped him: “The time I‘ve spent with my cousin on this wonderful island has truly been a healing grace. I am grateful to the @wwe @therock @universalpictures and everyone on the set of HOBBS & SHAW, for allowing me to be a part of this franchise.
“All of your outreach and support has been a blessing and it’s only pushed me to get back in the ring as soon as possible.
“But until then…I’m excited for this movie to premiere this summer, our culture and mana in this film is strong!”
