As we reported last night, rumors are swirling about Neville and his WWE status. Though no confirmation has come from either side, it would appear that the rumor is true, though WWE officials keep denying that there is a problem to anyone that asks.
Roman Reigns On His Position & The Undertaker
During a recent media call, Roman Reigns spoke about the gray area he occupies in WWE with not being a heel or a face.
“I like to feed off of whatever they give me. Each night I look at it like I’m dealt a new hand of cards and I’m going to play them the way I play them. I don’t say it much anymore but it still holds true: I’m not a good guy, I’m not a bad guy. I’m the guy. That’s why I think I’ve progressed so fast and become a veteran in the ring, because I’ve heard all of these reactions, I’ve had to learn from them night in and night out. It’s not just at WrestleMania or Summer Slam or at these big pay-per-views; it’s in the smaller towns in front of 2,000, 3,000, 4,000 opposed to 101,000 people.”
He also spoke about “retiring” The Undertaker at WrestleMania.
“Being in the ring with the Undertaker, I was able to feel that respect for the business from him. I was able to feel that responsibility and also to see that weight lifted off of him. That was one thing that was really neat, but it was semi-concerning. The times that I’ve wrestled these legends, these guys who have plugged in all this time, you could see a sense of relief on their faces after the match. They could finally take a breath for once. And for me, I know that’s quite the responsibility.”
I don’t know about you all, but to me, Reigns sounds cockier and cockier with each of these interviews. Whether that’s the tone WWE wants him to set or not, it really doesn’t appear to be helping him gain acceptance in the eyes of a wide section of WWE’s fan base.
