• Roman Reigns Has Advice For WWE Wrestlers On How To Get To The Top
During a recent interview with ComicBook, “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns talked about how it’s very tough to get to the top in WWE.
Below is what Reigns said:
“Everybody just wants to be in that [top guy] position. But people forget about the grooming period. People forget about the equity and the building of grassroots on TV, and also the audience that we’re in front of.
People, they can forget that I’ve been on television for years now. Every week, you’re really…the day in age we are content heavy society and there is just so much. So we’re competing with all of that.
So you have to consistently remind them of what you are and who you are and what you’re doing. I feel like some people just feel like, ‘Hey, I’m going to become a big star tomorrow.’ It doesn’t work like that. So you have to really show that you have [the equity with fans].”
