Roman Reigns, along with Becky Lynch, sat down with ESPN in an interview published today to talk about being the new WWE 2K20 cover stars. Other topics were also covered, however, including how “The Big Dog” felt about his former Shield brethren, Jon Moxley, and how he felt about his disparaging comments against WWE.
“When it comes down to it, creative-wise, that’s on you,” Reigns said. Communication is communication. When you go in there and you talk to boss, you gotta let him know. He even made comments about the things I had to say, but that was in a different place. I was brand-new.”
We’ve worked our asses off for Vince [McMahon] in this company, and he respects that, and he wants to know our opinions. You have to speak up for yourself. I’m in a position now where he listens to everything I have to say, what I’m feeling.
Early on, when you don’t have any equity, when you haven’t put in any time, you should do what the boss says. But once you earn that equity, once you got the keys to the car — which Ambrose was clearly in that position because all three of us [were] — you have to speak up for yourself and do what’s right for you.
Regardless, I love the dude, man. We came from the bottom and got to where we are now, and he’s a huge part of that. No type of business rivalry or any of that crap will ever affect the personal relationship I have with either Seth or Dean. We’re all gonna do our thing. We’re having fun. I’m enjoying where I’m at. I enjoy being with the WWE. I’ll never be anywhere else.
Definitely check out the rest of the interview, as it’s full of interesting conversation from both Reigns and Becky Lynch.
