Reginald received a name change during SmackDown this week and that called for an even bigger change to his gimmick after SmackDown was over. Now he is “Reggie” and dropping all references to his former Sommelier character.
Following SmackDown, Reggie cut an interview backstage where he had no accent. He admitted that “I’m not from France, I’m from St. Louis.” He had no accent and his character was totally changed.
He’s been a fan of WWE for his entire life and he saw that Carmella had a job opening so he applied. He didn’t mind having to pretend like he was from France to get a spot on WWE television. Now Reggie is able to be himself on WWE television.
This was an interesting way to reveal that Reggie’s character has totally changed. We will have to see how things continue for him from this point on. You can check out the video below.
