WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns has become one of the top stars of the company since bagging the championship gold. His gimmick transformation has worked immensely well and pairing up with Paul Heyman, Jey Uso, and Jimmy Uso has helped him even more. He has become a dominant force, making a tough time for the talents on-screen.
Roman Reigns could walk away

But, he never got the chance to connect to the live audience due to the pandemic. So, now he believes he is ready to walk out of ThunderDome and present his work in front of live crowd as they are set to return this month. He said:
“With what I’ve showcased in the ThunderDome alone, I could walk away. On top of everything I’ve done and taking (into account) this last year of performances. Everything I’ve set out to do, I’ve done it or I’m in the middle of getting to that point of achievement. The one thing we haven’t showcased is the relationship with the audience and the people who made it harder than it probably should have had to be. At the same time, through these hardships and struggles and pressure, comes a diamond.
I wouldn’t be the same if I didn’t have these adversities as a performer and growing pains. That’s what makes my character so special. I’ve made a relationship between every single character within the company. I haven’t showcased it with the live crowd. There was the taste at WrestleMania when I stacked those fools, but I haven’t been able to tell that story and the way it’s affected me and transitioned my thought process and driven me to the man I’ve become today.”
Reigns will be in front of live fans on the July 16 episode of WWE SmackDown as WWE hits the road once again.
After that, Reigns will defend the WWE Universal Title against Edge at WWE Money in the Bank pay-per-view on July 18.
