The main reason Reigns was interviewed was for Susan G. Koman, who WWE have a partnership with, but the focus quickly became about his career.
Reigns noted during the interview that he was told that Seth Rollins would be turning his back against The Shield on the day it happened.
He would focus the majority of his time speaking about a possible Shield reunion, the fan reaction and on the success of The New Day:
On a possible Shield reunion:
“It’s tough because I enjoy what I’m doing now. I enjoy being a singles guy. I enjoy commanding the stage with myself and an opponent. It’s a different process when you’re teammates. Especially with the way we work. We’re very unselfish with how we work together in so many different regards. Not just what you see as the final product of the match. Just strategizing, psychology, teamwork. What made us so empowering is that we helped each other and we always looked out for each other and you didn’t see that in wrestling too often. Even in factions, it’s a very individual game, but The Shield, we were just iron-clad brothers in black. We made it more about the group than anything. I miss that. I miss that camaraderie.”
On winning back the fans that turned on him:
“It’s been a work in progress. The crowd is the crowd. You’re gonna take them as an individual performer how you take them. The key is how do you learn from them. How do you use whatever is happening reaction-wise to get better.”
On the popularity of The New Day:
“Although I’ve beaten some of their asses in the past few weeks, I enjoy watching them. You can tell they’re having fun. That’s a huge thing. When you can see a talent having fun, you can invest more.”
Roman Reigns is rumored to either team with Randy Orton and Dean Ambrose against The Wyatt Family at WWE “Hell In A Cell” or face Bray Wyatt in a singles match in a “Hell In A Cell” at the event on October 25.
Roman Reigns is someone I have always enjoyed in and outside the ring, and his interview was very calm and enjoyable to listen to. He spoke passionately, and sounded like he was having a great time.
