WWE Superstar Roman Reigns has revealed cousin Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has given him some advice before his main event match at Wrestlemania 31 - to stay "focused and humble" throughout.

Ready to fight against current WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar at the prestigious show on Sunday night, the title will be on the line and Reigns decided to pick his relative's brain for some priceless guidelines.

Several Wrestlemania events have seen The Rock headline - most recently against John Cena in 2013 - and he was more than happy to help calm Roman's nerves before the biggest match of his career.

Chatting exclusively to BANG Showbiz, Reigns revealed: "The Rock has had some great advice for me. A lot of it has been to not get caught up in how fabulous and how crazy this whole week has been and to stay focused and humble with everything that is happening and remember what it is I'm here to do. He said to keep my focus on the task ahead and everything will be fine. The Rock also told me to stay humble in everything that I do in life and then good things are going to happen."

The young Superstar also thanked his father Sika Anoa'i - one half of legendary tag-team the Wild Samoans - for the words of wisdom he's passed down since he started his wrestling career.

"My family set the bar high in the WWE and I'm going to do my best to push it up even higher. I'm getting to represent my family on the grandest stage of them all; 'WrestleMania' is the biggest live event in the world. To be able to go in there and get to fight for the title and to make my family proud is everything.

"My dad is a Hall of Famer, he's done this, he's been on the road, he's trained hard, he's seen what I've seen. To be able to make him proud would mean the world to me. One of my biggest advantages is to have these resources, people like my dad available to me. To have so many different people whose brains I can pick who are blood relatives is incredible ... I've got to give a lot of credit to people like my dad for helping me on my journey to the top."

As well as the headline bout against Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania, iconic wrestlers Sting and Triple H will go head-to-head, and The Undertaker will return following the break in his streak last year, to go one-on-one with Bray Wyatt.

Wrestlemania 31 is available on Sunday night live via a subscription to the WWE Network for just £9.99 a month, or on Sky Sports Box Office via pay-per-view.
