Reggie: I Wouldn't Change Anything About My Path In WWE

Reggie is the current 24/7 Champion

Reggie says he would not change a single thing about his run in WWE so far, despite having a far from conventional start to life on the main roster.

Introduced as Reginald last year, Reggie served as Carmella's Sommelier on SmackDown before linking up with Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler on Monday Night Raw. Since splitting from the former WWE Women's Tag Team Champions, Reggie has been 24/7 Champion.

Speaking with Ryan Satin on the Out Of Character Podcast, Reggie said: "See, it's normal for a guy to go up and go directly to the guy's division, that's the blueprint or whatnot. But I was able to see it from the outside and see how the women's division operates.

"That’s a different dynamic, there's so much love. It's a different energy, for sure. Those women, I mean, I was just getting constant daily nuggets from Sasha, Carmella, working with TJ, because he was the main producer for a lot of the women's matches and it was so so much fun.

"I mean, it's one thing learning in the PC, with other students, they're better than me, but some of that on my level, then picking the brains of some of the best women wrestlers in the world, some of the best wrestlers in the world. It was incredible and they were always telling me certain things ‘Just stay humble. Stay at it. It's all a process.’

"Once I realized all of that, you know what, I'm here to do a job. I wasn't meant to be the star of anything. It was me to help be the sommelier, be annoying, be funny with Nia, and fall in love with Sasha, all these different things. I knew what I had to do. I'd say, I'm gonna do that part really well, nothing more, nothing less.

"I couldn't be more thankful. I wouldn't change that path for anything in the world. If someone can tell me say, 'Hey, you can go and debut in as this way and win a title, whatever.' I don't think I want to do that. Because you learn so much along that way. 

"Working with these incredible people that you can't, you can't take for granted those lessons and it's great to be thrown into the spotlight right away. But I learned so many lessons along the way. If I've known anything in life, those lessons that you learned throughout the long journey, those are way more important than the destination, because the destination is great. But the things that you learned throughout the journey are what make that destination."
