Roman Reigns is arguably the most dividing superstar in the history of professional wrestling and the reason for it is considered the mega babyface push he has received since the breakup of the shield.
However, in recent times we have seen Reigns abandoning the usual babyface antics and his promos make him look more like a heel to many.
In a recent interview with ESPN Roman was asked if he sees himself as a babyface or heel, replying to it the Big Dog said that he sees himself as the first true gray area guy:
“To me, I’m neither, If I’m totally off here, then I’m totally off, but I’m the first of my type. I’m the first true gray area guy … just being what he was born to be.”
Explaining his comment, the former World Champion said that he doesn’t do what babyfaces or heels usually do and he keeps his character as real as possible:
“I don’t go out there and act crazy and flail around and be a heel. I don’t come out there smiling and kissing babies, telling each town it’s my favorite town at the end of the night, I keep it real. Sometimes I’m in a good mood. Sometimes I’m in a bad one. I want my character to be as human as possible, but not just a regular human that you see every single day.”
Roman Reigns is currently scheduled to face John Cena at the upcoming No Mercy PPV.
