• Roman Reigns On Tough WWE Schedule

During the recent interview at the WWE For Your Consideration 2018 Emmy nomination campaign, Roman Reigns spoke on tough WWE schedule, creating moments that last with fans and more.

Below is what Reigns said:

“We don’t have an offseason. This is a weekly thing for us. 52 weeks a year. And it is grueling, and it is tough, and it’s not meant for everybody. But, when you achieve that goal, when you create those goosebumps… those are real, and regardless of what size crowd you’ve been in front of, or what was the best match, you still get them in the craziest moments, and those are the moments that make you feel truly alive.

And when you see that effect that you have on that lady over there, or the man with his son, you know you’re creating those moments that you’re gonna be a part of for the rest of their life. And I think that’s why our fanbase is so strong, and that’s why it’s global because we’ve been able to share that connection with so many people.”

During a recent edition of The Ross Report, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross gave his views on wrestlers slapping their legs to make noise to simulate impact.

Below is what JR said:

“These leg and arm slaps to make noise to simulate impact so your off-hand is slapping your thigh or whatever and we hear that noise. Man, when you pull the rabbit out of the hat time and time again the magic is starting to lose, it wanes. I think that’s gotta be done more strategically, more discreetly and right now across the board in the business, it’s overused without question.”
