Roman Reigns joined After The Bell podcast with host Corey Graves to talk about a wide range of topics.
In the interview, Reigns has talked about fans turning on former WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins due to the comments he has made on social media.
His comments have caused him to receive some criticism from fans over that as well as being the top guy in WWE.
2019 has been the year for Rollins as WWE’s top guy as he’s been in the title scene for the majority of the year as Reigns has taken a step back from being the top star.
“We’ve talked very briefly but just the way with our travel, it’s really separated us. We’re both out to conquer but we have to hold it down for our respective sides. With Seth, he knows what to do. He knows what to do in the ring and how to carry himself. It’s just a matter of riding it out,” stated Reigns.
“This is a situation where sometimes it’s, ‘What have you done for me lately?’ You just have to go out the next night and kill it and continue to kill it. That’s all that matters – just bust your ass and work hard.”
Reigns stated that the cream always rises to the top, which is something that John Cena told him a long time ago. He was told to not go out there stink it up but rather have a good match. At the end of the day, he thinks the fans have respect for what they do.
“Seth is a pro wrestling guy and he’s never going to go anywhere. He’s always had the dream of WWE and a little bit of a roller coaster isn’t gonna scare him away.”
Reigns ended his comments by noting that any polarizing reaction is exactly what you are looking for from the fans.
