Talk is Jericho Recap w/ Roman Reigns – Dealing with Fan Criticism, WrestleMania Match vs. Lesnar, Squaring off with Undertaker, More!
Jericho welcomes Roman Reigns to the show.
Jericho remembers cutting a promo recently where he referred to The Usos as his ‘Back of the bus Brothers’. He got some heat for that because some fans interpreted that as a racial slur. In reality, he was simply referencing the fact that they sit in the back of WWE’s bus when they’re travelling from town to town.
Reigns remembers Jericho cutting that promo and he informs that they call the back of the bus the ‘Yoko-isle’ because Yokozuna was so big that he needed to sit in the back of the bus since that was the only spot where he could fit.
Jericho says that there’s a different vibe in the WWE locker room today than there was in the 2000s. It’s not like they weren’t having fun back then, but it’s an altogether different feeling backstage these days. Everyone legitimately seems to be enjoying the experience, and it’s such a relaxing and fun environment. From what Reigns has heard, the WWE locker room had a ‘competitive hate’ vibe years ago. These days it’s more of a ‘competitive love’ vibe.
Reigns informs that he has a great relationship with Dean Ambrose, but he admits that you really have to get to know him before you can really understand him. He says he clicked with Ambrose right from the start, but it took a little longer to develop the same type of relationship with Seth Rollins. He informs that he gets along well with Rollins now, and he’s happy about that.
