WWE's Roman Reigns Reveals The Significance Of His Golden Glove

Reigns has donned the golden glove since last October

One of the most notable changes to Roman Reigns' attire since his change in character has been the addition of a golden glove on his right hand. 

The Head Of The Table first notably wore the glove during his Hell In A Cell Match with cousin Jey Uso last October, leading to some speculation that the hand accessory was in tribute to the Infinity Gauntlet, and Thanos, from the Marvel Avengers Universe.

Reigns himself has now spoken about the significance of the golden glove and says he wears it because everything he touches 'turns to gold'.

Speaking to Ryan Satin on Out of Character, Reigns said: "After I did it, I saw the obvious parallels and comparisons, which makes sense, but I just wanted to change it up.

"With the character, I said it before, everything that I touch turns into gold. That's been my goal with this chapter of my character. To be able to lift everything up. I've done that, not only with just my opponents but anybody surrounding me with my storylines and within my narrative. That's something that is extremely important to me.

"When my time is done, you'll be able to really believe that I left this place better than I found it. I don't think there are a lot of people that can say that. There are a lot of takers out there, but I've found that fine line to take what I need, but also give back a lot. There aren't that many performers out there that can say that.

"I push for it and I have so much respect for him; I think Ric Flair is one of the greatest ever to do that. That's always my goal in that position that I'm in now to keep that credibility and value, but also push everybody as high up as I can."
