Roman Reigns Makes His "Big Announcement"

Roman Reigns On Vince McMahon Retiring From WWE, If He Is Concerned About How He Is Presented

Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns recently made an appearance on the “Sports Illustrated Media” Podcast to talk about a variety of topics such as Vince McMahon retiring from the WWE and that it is just hard to believe he is truly gone from the company.

Roman Reigns said:

“You know, it’s just hard to believe [that Vince McMahon is no longer CEO and Chairman of WWE], because I think along with anyone who has followed this business or been in this business that just, Vince is gonna be running this. I’m gonna be long gone. I’ll be 20 years retired and Vince is still running the show, you know what I mean? So I think that was just kind of, ah, okay, we’ll see. We’ll see him in six months or something like that I think was kind of the mindset that I initially took and then I think we received, you know, the Talent Relations text message and then obviously, a personal message from him and we talked a little bit and yeah.”

Roman Reigns also talked about if he is concerned about how he is being presented on WWE TV under the new leadership of Triple H.

Roman Reigns said:

“Well I mean, we’re not erasing what I’ve done, you know what I mean? So I think it’s very visible, even if Paul [Levesque] wasn’t completely locked into what we’ve been doing over the past six months and obviously over the past year with the health issues that he’s overcome and everything, the journey that he’s been on. But, you know, we never forget what we’ve done and the body of work that we have and why we’re to the point that we are, but I think like anyone that’s trying to get better or progress, they’re gonna keep that mindset that I’m constantly trying to better myself. This week is an audition for next week and that’s how I look at it. I literally — it was funny because I just did that house show in Ottawa and one of the producers, after we were done, they come up to me and, ‘Man, you bump like you’re auditioning for a job’ and I don’t do anything crazy. We didn’t do any crazy bumps or any[thing] but it was just my regular ‘ole flatbacks but, I attacked the mat as if it was my first day of training. As an athlete, that’s how we’ve always been trained as in 100 percent every single time so that was instilled as a child so, for me, I don’t care who’s running the show. In my mind, I’m running the show and as long as I continue to push myself and bring my very best performance every single week, it don’t matter if it’s Vince [McMahon], Triple H, Nick [Khan], Stephanie [McMahon], Amazon, Disney, Paul Heyman, any — Jimmy [Traina], you could run the show and you know who the man is.”
