Roman Reigns is the face of WWE but sometimes he doesn’t receive the best response from the live crowd. Even though Michael Cole calls it a “thunderous reaction” we know an arena full of boos when we hear it.
Sasha Banks was recently over in New Zealand and Australia on a promotional tour to spread the word about WWE’s September tour Down Under. While at the Victoria Zoo, Sasha Banks gave an interview and she was asked who the best male talent is in WWE. She had a very interesting response. When giving her answer the first name she spoke was Roman Reigns. Afterward, she went on to give a unique observation about the people who boo him.
Thanks to Cage Side Seats for the transcription from the following interview.
“Roman Reigns” Sasha said. “Whether you guys love him, boo him, hate him — I think all of the guys are jealous of him. He is an incredible athlete. He’s one to watch. He does it and kills it every single week.”
Sasha didn’t stop at just putting Roman Reigns over. She also had some awesome things to say about a couple other WWE superstars.
“Of course, I have to say Cesaro” Sasha continued. “I watch his stuff and I go, ‘How do you think of that?’ He’s so strong!”
“Let me choose someone on SmackDown… of course, AJ Styles. He is legit phenomenal. I’m just like in awe every time I see him wrestle. He’s so sweet… he’s my Uncle Allen. What’sup, Unc? You good?”
So if you hate Roman Reigns and you’re a male, then according to Sasha Banks you’re the one with the problem. While she might be correct nobody will really know for sure. But if he keeps it up in due time Roman might be transitioning those boos into cheers.
