Roman Reigns says that he ‘ISN’T A BABYFACE’

Well, I’ve got news for ya pal, the company kind of wants you to be…

Roman Reigns spoke to ESPN earlier this week and he discussed his on screen character and the diluting of the babyface/heel dynamic in modern wrestling. He also describes himself as the first ‘true grey area guy in WWE history.’

Reigns made the following comments:

“I don’t go out there and act crazy and flail around and be a heel,” I don’t come out there smiling and kissing babies, telling each town it’s my favorite town at the end of the night. I keep it real. Sometimes I’m in a good mood. Sometimes I’m in a bad one. I want my character to be as human as possible, but not just a regular human that you see every single day.

“It’s just one of those things that helps me work with everybody. It’s not about, ‘Well, we can’t tell this story because it’s two bad guys going against each other, or it’s two good guys.’ I can adjust to any way [we want to do it]. I can wrestle any way I want. Sometimes you fight pissed off. Sometimes you fight smart with technique. It just depends.”
