Roman Reigns once again broke character at a WWE live event, but this time, he had a request for the fans in attendance. Reigns previously broke character by doing a babyface promo for his hometown fans in Pensacola, FL last month.
After the main event of Saturday night’s live event in Erie, PA, Reigns did a babyface promo where he said the energy from the fans made it easy for the wrestlers to do what they do and brought up how they don’t have an off-season.
Reigns thanked the fans for coming out but asked them to not post his promo on social media considering he's a heel. You can watch the entire promo here:

At the event, Reigns retained the unified WWE Universal Title against Drew McIntyre in the main event. This is a match that McIntyre recently pushed for at the upcoming UK show on Saturday, September 3 at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium, which marks the first major PPV event in the UK since 1992.
Reigns wasn’t featured on Friday’s episode of SmackDown, but is advertised to appear on next week’s show. The last time he appeared on WWE programming was when he joined The Usos in laying out Shinsuke Nakamura. As of this writing, he doesn't have a match lined up for WrestleMania Backlash next month.
