Reggie has been a prominent figure of WWE television. The former partner of Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax now finds himself as a mainstay in the 24/7 Championship picture. With WWE reportedly having future plans for Reggie, he seems to be a part of WWE television for the foreseeable future.
The former Cirque du Soleil performer has been seen on WWE television as an acrobatic and charismatic performer. Reggie has been able to use his acrobatic background to frequently escape as the 24/7 Champion.
Reggie made an appearance on Ryan Satin’s Out of Character podcast where he discussed his current character. Reggie says that his character is true to who he is in real life and it helped with his career direction.
“Actually, pretty much 100% of that character is me. It’s quite funny because I didn’t have much direction. When I first was introduced to SmackDown. I was just the sommelier and whatnot and they didn’t tell me how to act or what to do. There was just do certain things with Carmela and whatnot. But come to find out, I actually spoke French. So what’s the school in Montreal, I traveled around friends. I love fashion. I love suits. So, I just put all of those things into that character and it worked so well.”
The current 24/7 Champion has been involved in numerous comedic title defenses against many members of the WWE roster. While WWE may choose to keep Reggie as a comedy 24/7 Championship character, it seems Reggie is happy with his character in WWE.
