6 best real-life stories of Roman Reigns
Roman Reigns is a former WWE World Heavyweight Champion who was introduced to the WWE Universe as the brute force behind The Shield.
Over the past three years since The Shield's original split in the spring of 2014, Reigns has been groomed to take over the top spot in the company, a place that will be left vacant when John Cena finally decides to walk away.
Reigns has been a superstar that the WWE Universe has loved to hate. Thanks to Chairman Vince McMahon's love of the Samoan star, it seems that the loyal members of the audience enjoy booing Reigns out of every building that he enters. As they say in the wrestling world though, "any reaction is better than no reaction at all."
The WWE Universe has known the star who is on the screen on WWE TV every week, but they don't know the man behind the character, so here are six real-life stories that will introduce Roman's loyal fanbase to the man behind the on-screen persona.
#6 Roman Reigns and Galina Becker
Unlike many other wrestlers who perform on WWE's main roster, Roman Reigns was already in a relationship when he debuted on WWE TV and finally married his girlfriend of almost a decade Galina Becker back in 2014.
Roman and Galina met when they were both attending The Georgia Institute of Technology. Whilst in college Reigns played football whilst his girlfriend was on the track and field team. Both Galina and Roman then studied management together and it is thought that this is where they first met.
Reigns talked about his relationship with his wife as part of Unfiltered with Renee Young where he revealed that his life was so much easier when he and his wife first met and he wasn't travelling the world on a regular basis.
Reigns recalled: “When we first met we were just having fun, and we were kind of like glued to each other and just not having a care in the world or [worrying] about anyone but us, but I’m a grown up now.”
