Roman Reigns did an interview with CBS Sports to discuss a wide range of topics.
During the interview, he was asked about his feud with Jey Uso. It turns out that originally this feud was supposed to be a one-off. Uso recently confirmed that, but it got over so well that WWE decided to continue it.
Their first match took place at the Clash of Champions pay-per-view event and now they’ll have a rematch with the Universal Title on the line once again, but this time, it’ll be an I-Quit Hell in a Cell Match.
According to Reigns, he thinks having real-life qualities and experiences in the storyline as their cousins have helped fans invest in the story.
“I’ve taken these real-life qualities and experiences and put them in a storyline. That has been able to connect with our audience in a really cool way because they’ve seen me grow and they’ve seen my path and they’ve seen me operate on this top tier of WWE for a long time. For me to actually emote and explain the dimensions of it, I think they dig that and the feeling that the fourth wall is down from time to time. To me, this is Roman. He’s not Joe. I’m able to connect to everything I’m doing now way stronger than anything I’ve done before.”
Reigns also talked about his pairing with Paul Heyman, his new character, and more. Check out the full interview here.
