• Roman Reigns Reveals Why He’s Going To Saudi Arabia Despite Refusing To Go Last Time
Last year, Fightful reported that “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns refused to go to Saudi Arabia to work WWE Crown Jewel PPV (despite being advertised to defend the Universal Title in a Triple Threat match against Brock Lesnar & Braun Strowman).
However, he’ll be going to Saudi Arabia next week to wrestle Shane McMahon at WWE Super ShowDown 2019 PPV.
During a recent interview with Newsweek, Reigns revealed why he’s going to Saudi Arabia next week for the PPV:
“It gets a lot of mixed and negative reactions. The bottom line for me is if we’re going to help promote change if we’re going to set out to make an impact than I have to be a part of it. I’m not going to sit on the sideline and talk about how we can get there. I want to be a part of the action.
I look at it as being a part of the solution while still respecting cultures, but it’s a big world and I want to experience all of it. So if we can help make a positive impact that’s what we’re here to do. We’re here to put smiles on everyone’s faces. We don’t discriminate, that’s our goal to help and promote positivity and take that to every inch of the world.”
