• Kofi Kingston Teases Major Feud, Roman Reigns Explains Why He Attacked Mr. McMahon
As seen in the main event segment of last night’s SmackDown, “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns became a part of the SmackDown roster and Superman Punched Mr. McMahon.
You can watch it below:
During a backstage interview, Reigns explained why he attacked Vince McMahon:
“I haven’t been a part of this show and this program for a while. I’ve been on RAW, I’ve always focused on RAW. So, I think if you’re going to move me to SmackDown, you gotta do it in the biggest fashion possible, so what better way than to come in and punch the boss’ jaw loose. To be able to just dive right back in the deep end and swim with the sharks is nice.
When it comes to me and what I’m here to do, I’m here to make this place better, I’m here to draw more attention, I’m here to use my platform and my character, me, Joe as a person, with everything going on with me, it’s all going to be good stuff.
So, I always welcome the responsibility and the challenge to be able to help something progress, and get better, in all walks of life, but when it comes to this business, in between those ropes, sports entertainment, professional wrestling, I care and I love so much for this business, because it’s fed me since day one.
So, any time I can contribute and help put food on the table of others, and just make this whole product better, that’s key, that’s end-game for me, and that’s what I’m here for.”
Reigns tweeted the following after SmackDown:
New yard. Same rules..
