He said, “He (Roman) was the kind of guy who would open up and try to do anything that would make him better. He didn’t wanna be a shadow of The Rock, and he had a Hollywood movie star face. And that was a big plus right there for the girls. But very tight family man, with his family, his kids, very tight.”
