• RAW Star Says Roman Reigns Is One Of The All-Time Greats
During a recent interview with Sky Sports, RAW wrestler Finn Balor talked about the negative fan reaction to Roman Reigns, Roman Reigns helping him since he came to WWE and more.
Below are the highlights:
On the negative fan reaction to Roman Reigns:
“I don’t get it. He’s probably one of the hardest working people in WWE, he looks great, he’s professional, a great talker and behind everything, a great person.
I think it’s monkey do as monkey see and people are easily led. They might read what one person has written in a newsletter, decide that person’s right, and then jump on the bandwagon.
That’s what’s happened with Roman. People are very fickle – I remember when The Shield were doing their thing and everyone was behind Roman; he was the coolest guy in The Shield. Opinions change in this business and they forget the past but Roman ain’t sweating it.”
On Roman Reigns helping him since he came to WWE:
“He’s great behind the scenes, he will help you with anything you want and he’s always polite. He was great to me when I first came into WWE and he continues to help me today. I can’t speak of anything but greatness for Roman Reigns, he’s one of the all-time greats.”
Speaking of Reigns, “The Big Dog” has now overtaken 16 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena as the #1 merchandise seller in WWE.
Reigns was previously the #1 merchandise seller among the full-time WWE wrestlers, but didn’t overtake Cena at that point despite Cena now being a part-timer.
The fact that Reigns is the #1 merchandise seller in WWE despite a negative reaction from the crowd shouldn’t come as a surprise as Vince McMahon is using the same strategy on Reigns that he used on Cena (where Vince found out that Cena continued to out draw everyone in the WWE by a large margin despite receiving a lot of negative reaction).
