• Roman Reigns’ Reaction To WWF Legend Telling Him He’s Not A Babyface
During a recent edition of Busted Open Radio, WWF Tag Team Legend Bubba Ray Dudley talked about the current WWE Universal Champion, Roman Reigns.
Bubba recalled an old conversation he had with Reigns backstage when Roman was a babyface under his “Big Dog” run.
Below is what Bubba said:
“I’ll never forget, we were in Des Moines, and Roman opens up the show with a promo. I was standing at the bottom of the Gorilla Position, and he goes, ‘Bubba, what did you think?’
And he was a babyface at that time, and I said, ‘Honestly, you’re not a babyface.’ And he laughed and he goes, ‘I know’.
I go, ‘Everything about you reeks of heel. It really does’. The tone, the inflection, the way he carries himself. He just looks like that BMF (bad motherf**ker) heel.
And then when he started to be a heel – in my opinion – it was that, ‘I’m trying really hard to be a bad guy’ promo, as opposed to stuff I see [last Friday on SmackDown].
A different comfort level, where he goes, ‘Hey man, I’m the baddest mothertrucker in this company and if you get in this ring, I’m going to knock your you-know-what in the dirt’.
So, I like the work Roman’s doing.”
