• Real Reason Roman Reigns Was Recently Interviewed By TMZ
Roman Reigns was recently interviewed by TMZ, where he revealed the real reason he’s been off WWE programming (tap here to read more).
There have been rumors going around that the relationship between WWE and Reigns isn’t good right now, but it looks like it isn’t that bad either.
The Wrestling Observer noted that the real reason Reigns was interviewed by TMZ was because WWE wanted him to plug The Undertaker’s docuseries in it (which is set to premiere this Sunday), so they set it up:
“He talked to TMZ because WWE is trying to really promote the Undertaker show after the pay-per-view.”
Reigns’ interview surely gave some buzz to the docuseries.
Not only Reigns, but WWE is also setting up a lot of interviews for The Undertaker as well to promote his docuseries.
