He had said: “Yeah, we’re working on it. It’s not easy. I’m not gonna just… with this character, it’s gotta be the right vibe. I can’t, you know, be… you can’t just hire a rapper… it can’t just be some rap music.”
WrestleMania is an event of surprises and many had been speculating Reigns to come out with the new theme song but the WWE Universal Champion had stuck to the old one and used Truth Reigns at WrestleMania 37.
At the event he achieved a dominant victory over Daniel Bryan and WWE Hall of Famer Edge. He had issued a challenge to Bryan to face him on this week’s Friday Night SmackDown and he chose to debut his new entrance song on the show.

With Daniel Bryan out of blue brand as per the stipulation of the match, it seems Cesaro is going to get a shot at the title. He had come out to save Bryan who was attacked by Reigns post the title defense.
However, Jey Uso had also come out in aid of Reigns and assaulted Bryan with a chairshot and there was nothing Cesaro could do about it as he was tied to the ropes.
