Roman Reigns is the face of WWE, his title reign has been phenomenal. He ambushed every opponent who came after his title. Roman Reigns is scheduled to face Cody Rhodes for Undisputed WWE Universal Title at WrestleMania 39, fans are expecting that Cody Rhodes would dethrone Roman Reigns.
Roman Reigns was recently interviewed by Daniel Cormier of ESPN, where he praised Cody for building something outside of WWE, but Roman Reigns is not happy that he worked too hard to put this place where it is, and just some wrestlers come and try to sweep in and taking it from us.
“It’s going to sound a little weird because, in our heated exchanges, I said some things, and I stand by them. From my perspective, he ran. Plain and simple. On the other side, he did something very resilient. He did something that, and that’s one of the things that maybe bothers me or concerns me the most about him…I don’t know if I would be willing or if I could do what he did. As a man, I don’t like that. I want to feel like I can do anything, but he did something that, I don’t know if I would have been willing to do what he did. I respect that. Me and Seth (Rollins), this is one of the only things we agree on, we don’t want to be busting our ass this whole time, building this thing up for what it is, and just have some white knight coming sweeping in and take it from us. I’ve worked too hard, year after year, show after show, to put this place where it is. Then, here he comes. That’s just not how it works for me,” said Roman.(H/T: Fightful)
