Roman Reigns On His Haters: “I Think They’re Like Closet Lovers to Be Honest”


WWE star Roman Reigns recently spoke with Yahoo Sports ahead of his match at WWE SummerSlam, and below are some interview highlights:

On his haters:

“I think they’re like closet lovers to be honest,” Reigns said. “You can say whatever you want, but it’s how you say it that matters. The way they deliver it, they’re more connected to me than their so called ‘favorites.’ For me to be able to pull on whatever string I pull on, it just goes to show there’s a deep rooting there.”

On “smarks” feeling he gets an unfair advantage in WWE because of his lineage:

“It doesn’t really matter to me, as long as they’re really loud, that’s all I really care about,” Reigns admitted. “There could be certain moments where they try to hijack shows and all of that, but by the end of the match, they’re standing up so I’ve been blessed. I really do think that if they love to hate you, they still love you.”

On the fans’ initial reaction to The Shield:

“We weren’t just welcomed in with smiles and hugs and kisses,” Reigns said. “They didn’t look at us very happy or want to give us what we have now. Throughout history our backstage and locker room has always been known as a shark tank, nothing is just handed over. You have to go in there and have a killer instinct and that’s what we did with the Shield.”
