It’s a special place. Wrestlers are tasked with keeping up their characters no matter what happens in front of the crowd. It is one of the most important part of a wrestler’s work and is only broken up on special occasions. One of the few instances of this is when a wrestler is in a situation that means something personal to them and that was the case this week at a live event.

Over the weekend, WWE held a live event in Pensacola, Florida, featuring a main event of Drew McIntyre and the New Day defeating the Bloodline. Following the match, Roman Reigns, a Pensacola native, addressed the crowd, talking about how blessed he is and saying that no matter where he went, this would always be his home. Reigns said that he acknowledged the crowd instead of having them acknowledge him. He also thanked the fans for coming out to the show.

It was an awesome speech. Check out what Reigns said to the crowd:

Opinion: This is the kind of thing you do not get to see very often but it is special every time it does happen. Reigns is someone who carries a lot of weight in WWE today and it is great to see him getting to be at home in front of his fans. He is going to be in the biggest match of the year next month at WrestleMania and it is cool to see him getting to do something like this on a unique occasion.

What do you think of Reigns? What do you expect to see him do at WrestleMania? Let us know in the comments below.
