Roman Reigns recently spoke to SPORT1 in Germany where he discussed a wide range of pro wrestling topics including All Elite Wrestling.
Last month, Seth Rollins took part in a media conference call. In that call, he talked about how Jon Moxley leaving WWE to go to AEW has made him a competitor because he’s in a promotion trying to compete against WWE.
Reigns gave his take on the situation where he thought Rollins calling AEW competition was generous on his end.
“I think [Seth Rollins] is being generous in calling them a competition. I don’t want to get too deep into this […], I said it before: It’s an option and that’s great for professional wrestlers, pretty cool for fans. Before my family was WWE only, we’ve been a territorial family. You had to move, work with different promotions and territorys. I’m always gonna be ‘pro pro-wrestler’, but at the end of the day: WWE is my home, it’s what I represent and we’re so far ahead. You can see it in other shows: It’s not easy to have a clean production, you have to have a lot of experience. Our talent is top-notch, we’ve got main eventers for day, but it also is our crew. They’re busting their asses all night to get the show running.”
Reigns made it known that when other promotions try to do what WWE does then you can see their flaws and makes people respect what WWE does.
“There’s so many people that make this place work. When you see other people out there tryin’ to do it, you see the flaws and it makes you respect what we do even more. It’s easy to complain and to say this and this on paper, but when it’s time to go out there and actually do it: Nobody will do it like WWE. Period.”
