Roman Reigns is currently the WWE Universal Champion and the Tribal Chief of Friday Night Smackdown, running roughshod over anyone who comes in his path. Before his dramatic character and opting to be shirtless, he used to wear his traditional Shield attire. A surprising Roman Reigns WWE diva rumor leaked yesterday.
It comprised a tactical vest, gloves, combat trousers, and nine-inch boots as part of his regular WWE attire. This is what he wore during his Fastlane 2017 match against Braun Strowman, with some changes. Reigns decided to match the white trim on his black vest and gloves by wearing black shoes with white soles. Apparently, this somehow did not sit well with Vince McMahon, who was upset during the match, and banned the gear.
Roman Reigns recently spoke to Complex’s Joe La Puma while they were shopping for sneakers in Miami, Florida. He said that a ‘very important person’ did not like his Fastlane 2017 look, which essentially meant Vince McMahon.
“No, I didn’t expect all the sneakerheads to come out and really kind of see that and talk about it. The main thing for me is the regular boots that I wear, they come up a bit higher. They’re like an eight-inch, nine-inch that comes up right below the calf.
“I had to kind of put in ankle braces and make it work for me for the performance. But, man, they felt good, they felt lighter. The sole was a bit more cushiony. Those Nike boots are nice, too, that I wear. But, man, the white soles, I think that’s a classic look. I don’t think it’s ever going out of style.”
“I pretty much matched up my soles because I’ll wear different colors with the black. I had white on the vest and gloves and stuff, and they had a white trim on it. I matched it up [with white soles] and I thought it looked sweet! One person didn’t and he’s a very important person, so…”
Roman’s expensive store receipt also surfaced.
