Reggie is going through one of the most unconventional journeys in the WWE. While he started off as a side-character in WWE Women’s Division, he’s gone on to become the WWE 24/7 Champion. He frequently faces R-Truth and Akira Tozawa.

The Cirque du Soleil professional recently appeared on the Out of Character podcast. He revealed that there are a lot of pros to having an odd journey in WWE, and he’s learnt much from everyone around him.

See, it’s normal for a guy to go up and go directly to the guy’s division, that’s the blueprint or whatnot. But I was able to see it from the outside and see how the women’s division operates. That’s a different dynamic, there’s so much love. It’s a different energy, for sure. Those women, I mean, I was just getting constant daily nuggets from Sasha, Carmella, working with TJ, because he was the main producer for a lot of the women’s matches and it was so so much fun.

Reginald also added that while he initially wanted to be a hero, he gave up that dream. He added that he started doing all the funny things for the show as part of the job, which made his experience easier.


Once I realized all of that, you know what, I’m here to do a job. I wasn’t meant to be the star of anything. It was me to help be the sommelier, be annoying, be funny with Nia, and fall in love with Sasha, all these different things. I knew what I had to do. I’d say, I’m gonna do that part really well, nothing more, nothing less. I couldn’t be more thankful. I wouldn’t change that path for anything in the world. If someone can tell me say, ‘Hey, you can go and debut in as this way and win a title, whatever.’ I don’t think I want to do that. 

Reggie started off on WWE as Carmella’s Sommelier, but now he’s become one of the more prominent parts of the promotion. He recently took to dropping his entire gimmick after Friday Night SmackDown.
