The Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns had expressed his desire to take some time off and has been delivering cryptic promos. He has been also rumored to transition his career into Hollywood. He has been having a great run in the company as he surpassed 600 days, making it the longest world title reign in WWE in decades. Some fans have been critical of ‘The Tribal Chief’ possibly taking a break from pro wrestling.
Booker T defends Roman Reigns
On his latest episode of the Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T defended Reigns and called out fans for their hypocritical behavior regarding part-timers and full-timers. He said WWE shouldn’t care what fans have to say regarding Reigns’ status:
“I don’t think you should think about what people want, especially as far as this goes. One moment, people are talking about how wrestlers work too damn much, and now when he [Roman Reigns] said he’s going to take time off, he’s a part-timer, which one is it? You can’t have both. For me as a promoter, if I can take Roman Reigns and preserve him because he’s a marquee guy for the company, why wouldn’t I do that? I wouldn’t care what people think.”
