I listened to the always entertaining Sam Robert’s Podcast this morning and he had a really interesting/quick interview with Roman Reigns on. Granted the talk took place on the Friday before this past weekend’s controversial Royal Rumble, in which we saw Reign’s win the event and then get showered with Boo’s from the rowdy Philadelphia crowd, but the content was very timely nonetheless.
Sam addressed the issue of fans not reacting Roman in general and people saying he isn’t ready to be “The Guy” because he hasn’t mastered his mic skills yet. Reigns replied by explaining that basically he loves the fans but he is here to provide for his family and make his money while he can. It was a very honest answer and a respectable one at that but it was the way he delivered it that almost had a “heel” persona to it. The response made me think WWE might have something pretty cool on their hands if they just allow Reigns to run with the Boo’s from the crowd.
As a wise man once said, “Good. Use your aggressive feelings, boy. Let the hate flow through you.”
