Triple H Explains Why They Haven’t Turned Roman Reigns Heel Yet

During a recent interview with ESPN, 14 time World Champion “The Game” Triple H was asked why they haven’t turned “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns heel yet. Below is what Triple H explained:

“When people say ‘They should just turn Roman’. Why? For the people that hate him, he’s already turned. And for the people that love him, they don’t want him to turn.

If we turned him, the people who hate him would switch to loving him, and the people who love him would switch to hating him”.

Top Raw Star Says His Old Finisher Will Never Return

During a recent appearance on the Sam Roberts’ Wrestling Podcast, Raw Tag Team Champion Seth Rollins talked about his old finishing move, The Curb Stomp. Rollins noted that the move will never return:

“No more blonde and The Curb Stomp is gone, guys. It’s not my fault. Trust me. It’s not like I was saying, ‘oh yes, I want a new finisher.’ No, they snatched it from me. They took it from me. No, so this is what happened, okay? After WrestleMania, I had won the WWE Title, and I flew across the country to do the Today Show. For the Today Show, they put together a package of all of Seth Rollins’ awesome maneuvers. At the time, my finish was The Curb Stomp.

So Vince McMahon is sitting wherever Vince McMahon sits on a Monday morning and he’s seeing me on the Today Show and I look good in a suit. I’m representing the company. I look good in a suit. And I’m wearing the title and then he sees this package of me stomping another man’s head into the ground and it being called The Curbstomp on national television.

And he thought to himself, ‘well, that’s not a good representation of what I want my top guy to do,’ so he just had a meeting with some of his people, and they decided, ‘well, we don’t need it – we can figure out another finish for you’ and the rest is history. I get it. I hate it. I think it’s silly, but it is what it is and it’s not my company. I’m doing the best I can with it.”
