That’s a big take. The Coronavirus pandemic has changed all kinds of thing for the wrestling world and that is going to be the case for a long time to come. There are only so many things that can be done to keep things normal at the moment and WWE has only been able to do so many things to keep things going as well as they have. It turns out that one of the bigger stars in WWE today was not exactly pleased by what was done.
The most notable change made on WWE television over the last year was the change in location. WWE has not run a show with more than a handful of fans since March 2020, meaning they had little reason to run a major arena for several months. While they have since moved on to the various Thunderdomes with virtual fans, WWE spent most of the summer in Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. This did not exactly sit well with someone pretty high up on the WWE roster.
Universal Champion Roman Reigns was recently interviewed by FOX Sports and was asked about some of the shows that took place during his absence over the course of the summer. Reigns said that he saw a few of the television shows and thought they looked like “trash”. Reigns make it clear that he was not talking about the wrestlers, who he said were working hard at everything they did. He felt that he wanted to come back when he could connect emotionally in the way he wanted, which ultimately came when WWE moved to the Thunderdome.
It was worth the weight. Check out Reigns’ return:
Opinion: This is not something you hear from someone in WWE all that often, but at the same time, this is something that the now villainous Reigns would certainly say. I can’t say I blame him being unimpressed by the shows, because they certainly did not feel that important or big in any way. Reigns’ return has turned SmackDown on its head and it makes sense for him to want to wait for the right moment for his huge moment.
