• SmackDown Wrestler Says He’s WWE’s Biggest Star
During a recent interview with The Hindu, “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns talked about his current time off from WWE and his training.
Below is what Reigns said:
“I’m ready to smash people if you know what I mean. I’ve been training my butt off during this pandemic.
As far as performing in front of an empty arena is concerned, it is tough and I really commend all the guys and girls who are doing it. Everything that I have ever learned was in order to get a reaction and to interact with our fans…so that is the hardest part.
But when it comes down to it, I am gonna get in there and compete at the highest level…hopefully for a title. More specifically, the Universal Championship.
If not, I will be there to prove that I’m not just the top of the mountain, but I am the mountain. I am [WWE’s] biggest star, regardless of if I am on the show or not…so I have everything to prove and everything to lose as well.”
Roman Reigns has constantly been the #1 merchandise seller on WWE’s full time roster (while being #2 when he was away due to leukemia and when The Fiend first arrived) and his videos on WWE’s YouTube channel also draw more views on an average than other full-time WWE Superstar.
