Roman has remained a controversial figure in WWE for the past four years, with the fans and wrestlers divided about what to think of him.
The heart of the matter
During the interview, 'Fantastic' Bobby Fulton was asked about his feelings with regards to Roman Reigns and his character in WWE.
Fulton said that if Roman was not getting over as a babyface, then he needed to be turned heel or 'fired.' He said that since people were not buying into the character of Roman Reigns, it was up to WWE to make the change.
"If he can't get over as a babyface and the people are booing him, fire him! Get rid of him or turn him heel. He's not getting the job done. It is plain and simple! They gotta make a change somewhere. People just ain't buying Roman Reigns."
Fulton criticised Reigns, as the crowd were jeering him despite him being a babyface.
Bobby Fulton is set to take part in the Big Time Wrestling event in Circleville, Ohio, on the 26th of May, as his retirement match.
