Roman Reigns: I Could Walk Away Based On My WWE ThunderDome Run
The Head of the Table has undoubtedly been WWE’s MVP in the Pandemic Era
Roman Reigns has ruled SmackDown with an iron fist since capturing the WWE Universal Title in August 2020, transforming the blue brand into arguably the must-see weekly show in all of wrestling.
Now, as WWE prepares to leave the Thunderdome and return to live touring, Reigns has reflected on his past year, telling Cheap Heat’s Pete Rosenberg:
"With what I've showcased in the ThunderDome alone, I could walk away. On top of everything I've done and taking [into account] this last year of performances. Everything I've set out to do, I've done it or I'm in the middle of getting to that point of achievement.
"The one thing we haven't showcased is the relationship with the audience and the people who made it harder than it probably should have had to be.
“At the same time, through these hardships and struggles and pressure, comes a diamond. I wouldn't be the same if I didn't have these adversities as a performer and growing pains. That's what makes my character so special. I've made a relationship between every single character within the company. I haven't showcased it with the live crowd. There was the taste at WrestleMania when I stacked those fools, but I haven't been able to tell that story and the way it's affected me and transitioned my thought process and driven me to the man I've become today."
