There’s been a lot of talk online from fans (and backstage in WWE) about how horrible Roman Reigns’ scripted promos are. Dave Meltzer noted on twitter that Vince McMahon is the person scripting the promos for him. The guy has a ton of charisma when he’s not scripted and he showed that at the SummerSlam panel in August so he certainly is not the guy to blame. Here is the promo he did on Smackdown. Roman seems to know that they’re horrible and gave a wink to the camera after the “sufferin succotash” line.
@WWMoan Vince is writing his promos. Vince is really out of touch. I hate to say it but the promos speak for themselves.
