• Roman Reigns Comments On Seth Rollins Rubbing Fans The Wrong Way, Says Rollins Is The “Face Of WWE”
During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns was asked about Universal Champion Seth Rollins rubbing fans the wrong way on Twitter and if Rollins is the “Face Of WWE”.
Below is what Reigns said:
“There is a lot to being the face of WWE. It’s not only about being in the ring. It’s about how you represent, and that is a 24-7, 365 job. You’ve got to be on all the time for 52 weeks a year. But I’m telling you now, my brother is legit.
I was so proud of him and what he did at SummerSlam against Brock Lesnar. He obviously had one of those weeks where the Twitter machine and the Internet went nuts on him, but he bounced back and answered the call.
Seth loves the WWE. That’s why some people misread some of the things he says or the ways he delivers it, but he does mean well. He’s a workhorse. Yeah, he’s a little live at the mouth sometimes, but he’s got a heart of gold, trust me.
Whether he’s on RAW or SmackDown, the WWE is in good hands with him as Champion.”
