Roman Reigns rumored to have made big demand of WWE

Last updated

WWE Unified Champion Roman Reigns is rumored to have made a pretty big demand of WWE creative in recent months.

According to a recent rumor/report from Ringside News, Reigns and his on-screen ‘wise man’ Paul Heyman refuse to allow the character to be turned face.

“Ringside News was told that Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman ‘refuse’ to let the Tribal Chief character fall into any babyface category” the site claimed. “We were told that he will only be classified as a villain, and that is their call.”

The site also revealed what a tenured member of the creative team told them with regards to Reigns and Heyman’s requests:

“They both are always telling writers ‘the character is the champion, the top attraction, the WrestleMania main event, the one who everyone relies on.’ They always use the word ‘burden’ as in ‘the burden the top attraction feels at all times'” the site relayed.

It’s worth noting that this rumour from Ringside News is just that, a rumour, as we are unable to verify whether or not the report is legitimate at this time.

I’m not surprised at all that the two men in the centre of the Bloodline angle are making this case, as it would be odd to even consider making the ‘Tribal Chief’ a face on WWE programming.
