If you go to a WWE event and boo Roman Reigns then he is fine with that. “As long as they’re showing up and as long as they’re making noise, then I’ve done my job,” Reigns said during a recent media scrum in the United Kingdom.
He acknowledges that many fans already see him as the bad guy. “It’s a weird question because aren’t I already a heel?” Reigns said. “If I garner that reaction, what’s the point? It’s already happening. If I’m already being booed, then why try to get booed?”
Reigns, who is seen as Vince McMahon’s golden boy, is willing to turn heel and if McMahon ever makes that decision then he would want to face one of the biggest babyfaces in the company. “Y’all wanna see me turn heel? Put me in the ring with [Daniel Bryan],” Reigns said. “We can talk about so many different things, about wrestling and the different things that make up the art form and the performance, but when it comes down to it, it’s about making people make a lot of noise.”
Reigns will head into the Money In The Bank pay-per-view in a unique situation. He will face a heel that the fans love to boo but Jinder Mahal might actually be the babyface in the eyes of the fans in Chicago.
At this point, there is no sign of Reigns turning heel and it’s looking like another showdown (at SummerSlam) is on the horizon at SummerSlam. If fans are looking for a heel turn, it doesn’t look like it’s coming soon. A Reigns vs. Bryan match would be a great match-up for WrestleMania, though.
