Roman Reigns spoke to ESPN.com about a big part of WWE’s ticket buying fanbase booing him. The following are key excerpts regarding his crowd reaction and the prospects of a feud with Daniel Bryan.
•”As long as they’re showing up and as long as they’re making noise, then I’ve done my job.”
•”It’s a weird question because aren’t I already a heel? If I garner that reaction, what’s the point? It’s already happening. If I’m already being booed, then why try to get booed?”
•”I have a great opportunity – because I’m a gray-area guy – to do a little bit of everything. I’m in a good place to do whatever I want and just play with this character and not just be a heel or a face – I feel my character can be so much more than that.”
•”Y’all wanna see me turn heel? Put me in the ring with [Daniel Bryan]. We can talk about so many different things, about wrestling and the different things that make up the art form and the performance, but when it comes down to it, it’s about making people make a lot of noise.”
•”Obviously with the reactions and the way I stir up the crowd, I think it would make up for a pretty dynamic and electric atmosphere. Bryan is one of the best ever to mix it up in the ring, I have a lot of respect for him. To see someone like him on top and have it all taken away so fast, it’s very scary.”
