• Roman Reigns On What Most WWE Wrestlers Can’t Handle After Getting A Major Push
While speaking on WWE’s After The Bell podcast with Corey Graves, Universal Champion Roman Reigns was asked if he sees anyone else except him as a top guy in WWE.
He didn’t name anyone, and said the following:
“Everybody wants that push. Everybody, ‘Man! If they just push me! Why am I not here’. But when the work comes they start b*tching and moaning about it. They start complaining. You say you want to be the guy but you don’t want to work on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday. You don’t want to work on a Saturday. You don’t want a double shot, you don’t want to do media before and after the show, you don’t want to catch the flight all the way across the country to do the hit for ESPN.
There’s a lot of different things that keep you away from home that make this a 24/7 365 day a year job. It’s not even a job. It’s like a life, it’s like a lifestyle. You become it. You are it. It’s not something you can put aside for a while and be like, ‘I want to be normal for a little bit.’
I’ve seen some of the boys go from, ‘Man, I want to be pushed, I want to be the guy, I want to have the responsibility in the locker room,’ to, ‘I think I kind of like it right here, doing what I’m doing, be on the TV this one week, making a good living, be able to be with my family the rest of the week.’ Not everybody.
That’s what makes our locker room special. We have a lot of hungry performers. But it’s very rare for someone to taste that idea of doing everything, being on every single show, being dead tired all the time, and enjoying it. Being willing to do it year in and year out. It’s one thing to do it a year or two, but when you’ve done it for 6 or 7, that’s when you know you are it.”
