Many times fans wonder if both men are still best friends in real life. The answer is yes! Although both men have had heated battles on screen, they never ruined their friendship. Roman Reigns worked with his former Sheild brothers for a long time, which brought them close in real life.

In an interview with Bleacher Report, Roman Reigns mentioned his relationship with them. He said, “Me and Seth were texting back and forth a few weeks ago. Me and Jon text a little more sporadically. It’s pretty out there anyways that me and Mox were super-tight.”

“We traveled together even when we split up. We were drinking buddies, the whole nine. I got a lot of cool moments with Mox. But actually I talk to Seth a little more than I talk to Mox right now. He’s off doing his thing. Probably when I found out he was having a baby was when I texted him, when I found out they were pregnant.”

“He’s funny. He goes, ‘What the heck am I supposed to do?’ ‘It’s simple, man. You feed them, you change them, you love them. That’s it.’ He texts back, ‘You make it sound so simple.’ We’re all still good, dude.”

Seth Rollins supported Roman Reigns during his battle with leukemia

Roman Reigns defeated Brock Lesnar and won the Universal Title at SummerSlam 2018. However, the happy moments didn’t last long as ‘The Big Dog’ revealed his leukemia diagnosis and stepped away from active competition.

Those were tough days in Reigns’ life. However, Seth Rollins supported him during his hard times.

During an interview, Rollins mentioned how he checked on Reigns’ health. He said, “It threw everything up in the air. It’s hard to go a day without thinking about him and how he’s doing and hoping he’s doing alright. I’m fighting the urge to check in on him like a brother every two hours, but he’s a strong dude, and I know that he’s in a good place mentally as well as physically.” [H/t TheSun]
