#7 Roman Reigns breaks character to open up about his new edgier persona in WWE
WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns was recently a guest on the Load Management podcast. Reigns, who returned to WWE at SummerSlam, opened up about his edgier new persona:
I think, how do we deliver it in a different way as opposed to just, oh he’s a bad guy. He’s this nasty human being now. I wanted to be able to do it in layers. That way the character is not just defined as being a bad guy. He’s the guy who’s faced with these decisions. In my mind and in the character’s mind, he’s justified in what he’s doing so he’s technically not wrong, but maybe rubbing people the wrong way or is using a different route than what most people were used to seeing the old character take.

Roman Reigns is currently aligned with Paul Heyman on SmackDown and he reiterated during the same interview that he was not a Paul Heyman guy, and that it was actually the other way around.
