#3 Disliked: Roman Reigns' shoes (Fastlane 2017)
When The Shield split up in June 2014, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose completely reinvented their characters by using new music and wearing different attires to what they wore during their time as “The Hounds of Justice”.
Roman Reigns, meanwhile, used a remix of The Shield’s theme music, while he slightly changed his attire but continued to wear a black tactical vest and cargo pants.
In March 2017, “The Big Dog” decided to change things up a bit by matching the white trim on his vest and gloves with the soles of his shoes for his match against Braun Strowman at Fastlane.
The minor change of appearance was welcomed by the majority of fans on social media. However, as Reigns told Sam Roberts on the Notsam Wrestling podcast, Vince McMahon was not too keen.
“I pretty much matched up my soles because I’ll wear different colours with the black. I had white on the vest and gloves and stuff, and they had a white trim on it. I matched it up [with white soles] and I thought it looked sweet! One person didn’t and he’s a very important person, so…”
Reigns joked that the idea of him wearing white soles again was “shut down”, so do not expect him to bring the gear back any time soon!
