• Roman Reigns Wanted To Use The Guillotine Choke For Years, Why He Wasn’t Allowed To Use It Before

Speaking to Bleacher Report, WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns discussed the newly added move to his arsenal, the Guillotine Choke.

The Tribal Chief has used it against different opponents like Braun Strowman and Kevin Owens to make them pass out and win the match.

Reigns revealed why he wasn’t allowed to use it before.

Below is what he said:

“I’ve been wanting to use that for years. No one’s to blame, it’s just the process of the creative.

It’s like, ‘What if I just pulled out a submission?’ I’ve been saying that for years. Everybody knows the Spear. The producers that I work with all the way up to the head man said, ‘I think the finish would be better with a Spear.’

That’s great because for years we built that Spear up and up. Even today, we’ve manipulated it over the past few months, but nobody’s going to say, ‘I can’t believe he lost to that Spear.’ If he won with that Spear, they’d be like, ‘Yep, he won with the Spear. It’s all good.’”
