AW Week In Review
Roman Reigns Wants To Make Changes To His WWE Character
Friday, March 15, 2019
was recently a guest on The Sports Illustrated Media Podcast and said that he wants to change his current character to include more of who he really is outside of The WWE, Joe Anoa'i.
Reigns would then say that he started doing just that the week after he returned to WWE TV following his second battle with leukemia, as seen below:
"I honestly think last week, that was one of my goals. I was like, 'OK, I knew the first week was gonna be crazy emotional, but I don't wanna be the guy who comes out there and everybody gets semi-sad or gets super heavy all the time.' I want people to have fun. I want to create escapism. It's like a mini vacation [for the fans] on their couch. Let's get into these storylines. Let's take all this positive sensitivity being sent to me and shift it and send it to people in need. That's where I'm at now, shifting all this positive energy from me to the people in need," Reigns said.
Reigns also said that it would be "pretty neat" if he could show different sides of his personality in the coming years.
He continued with, "But also with the storylines and character, because we have introduced Joe, especially last week, I felt like there was a lot of Joe within the promo of Segment One. Even with the interaction with Seth [Rollins], I just feel like with me integrating the characters and who I am in real life and who I am on stage, for me to kind of mix them, it allows me to laugh at Roman a little bit and have a little more fun and be a little more loose as opposed to the stoic brawler. If you know me in real life, I'm kinda like my cousins [The Usos], I'm a bit of a clown, I act up, we goof off a lot. We're silly. We're big kids. We're always goofing around, trying to laugh. If I can add that in the next couple of years, those layers of being chilled out, little more comedy, a few different emotions, I think that would be pretty neat."
