It takes a heel to recognize a heel.

Last night at UFC 210, Light Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier defeated Anthony Johnson at 3:37 of the second round, to retain his title. At the post fight press conference, Cormier was asked about the boos that he was receiving during the fight.

The champion would make a comparison between that and the boos that Roman Reigns received during his promo on this past week’s “Monday Night Raw:”

“I was watching WWE WrestleMania last weekend and I said ‘Wow, it would be great if Roman Reigns pins The Undertaker, clean. It’s how the ‘Old school’ guys do business. Monday night, Roman Reigns walked out to the ring and they booed him for ten minutes, would not allow him to talk, it was the most organic crowd they’ve had in a really long time. He said ‘This is my yard’ and he left. It was perfect, because they were playing the game for him.”

Roman Reigns declares that WWE is his yard now: Raw, April 3, 2017

Editor’s Note:

Roman Reigns is absolutely outstanding. The way that he has embraced the reaction that he is getting from the fans, as well as incorporated it into his character, has been nothing short of perfect.
