Roman Reigns is on a roll since his return to the company back at WWE SummerSlam last year. He returned as the Tribal Chief and truly reinvented himself. Reigns also helped make the WWE Universal Championship a prestigious title, the most important title in all of pro wrestling according to him.
Roman Reigns certainly knows how to work the crowd after gaining a lot of confidence in himself and perfecting his Tribal Chief character. He always struggled to get the appropriate reaction from fans until Reigns turned heel.
While speaking to the Out of Character podcast, Roman Reigns talked about the current generation of pro wrestling fans. He noted that fans nowadays are fast food-oriented and want instant gratification.
“We have a very fast food-oriented audience nowadays. It’s a ‘what have you done for me lately’ situation, everybody wants kind of some change as soon as they feel like they’ve gotten the portion that they were looking for. For me to still be almost a year now and for it to still to be interesting, for it to still be compelling, it just goes into, not just the performance, but just the hard work and the brainstorming and everything that goes in to being able to develop these types of stories.”
Roman Reigns certainly made sense in what he said. Roman Reigns is also set to defend his title against John Cena at the WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view on August 21st. We will have to wait and see if he will be able to successfully retain the title or not.
