Roman Reigns is not the same man anymore, and to solidify him as different from his previous persona, he has decided to wrestle shirtless.
“To fans that want me to change my gear, get over it. I’m not going to go out there in trunks. However, if you watch me this Sunday, you’ll probably see me with my shirt off. That’s the only change I’m making,” Reigns said via a Zoom call to a foundation raising money for Connor’s Cure.
Reigns wants to be fitter than before in order to gain confidence to wrestle shirtless. The five months of rest he took has been spent mostly in physical exercise to work on his physique, but he wants to sharpen himself up even more.
“I’m not perfect or a bodybuilder. But I feel confident to go out there and be a scary-looking athlete. Ever since I entered the wrestling business, I did not want my outfit to become a talking point. I’ve always felt like the superstar and not just a costume guy,” he said.
Reigns Wants To Build His Character Slowly
“I want all the nuances to add up. As a full time performer, I have to keep things fresh, and do something new every week. That’s why we have decided to save the new music. And hopefully down the line, once more drastic things happen, and the story unfolds, you’ll hear it,” he said.
“We have a bunch of fast food fans, who complain that they want well-thought out storylines to develop, but when you start doing that for them, they want it all now. I’m cooking a steak here, we’re making a very elaborate omelet, so we’re in the process of cracking eggs right now.”
“You’re not gonna get it just yet. We’re gonna let the steak stay on the grill and then if you want your cheeseburger, watch Raw. On SmackDown, we do filet mignon,” he added.
Reigns also stated that he does not have any Hollywood projects up on his alley, and that WWE was paying him fully during his hiatus during the pandemic.
