Roman Reigns tells WWE fans in New Jersey he may not be back because he's starting a new phase in his life



Tonight at the WWE live event in Trenton, New Jersey. WWE Undisputed Champion Roman Reigns broke character again and he had some words for the fan. Reigns thanked the fans and then said that he does not know if he will ever be back in Trenton again because he is starting a new phase in his life.

Reigns has been hinting for the last couple of years about making the transition into Hollywood. Last November during an interview on The Michael Kay Show, Reigns said the following:

"I think there’s going to be some moves made here pretty soon. There’s always these speculations, these contract talks. All that pushing, that’s my business. People who can dive deep enough, I’m sure they can uncover enough stones to figure out the timeframe, but that’s something I definitely want to dabble in, I want to gain more experience, and I want to use these tools that I’ve learned. WWE has done so right by me. They’ve given me so much, and placed so many great blessings and opportunities in front of me. I just had to capture them. I just had to grab that ball and run with it. I like to think that along the way, I just picked up so many skills and experienced so many different things that are going to help me because at the end of the day, we all know how this works. This is a young man’s game. You can’t fall down your whole life. You have to get to a point where you can transition, where you can connect and create new, fresh, evolved content for your fan base and your supporters. I think I have the ability to do that. At the end of the day, it’s about getting into that game, being thrown into that fire and seeing how you do. I have a pretty good track record with being thrown in the deep end, and if that’s what happens in Hollywood, I’m looking to swim.”

Last month, WWE President Nick Khan told "The Town" podcast that the company was helping Reigns to cross over into Hollywood: "We think he’s certainly up there, and we have big plans with him to help him crossover, which we think will be great for him and certainly great to do with him. Yeah, we think he has that."
