In a recent appearance on ‘That’s 90’s Wrestling Podcast’, Bennett mentioned Roman Reigns. He discussed Reigns’ role backstage, how impressive his role was and how he used to provide genuine feedbacks for the 205 Live locker room.

Bennett said, “I mean, Roman (Reigns) is the best. He’s the man. That dude would watch our 205 Live matches and help us after our matches and would give us good critique. He wouldn’t be like, ‘All you guys are doing too much.’”

“No, he would be genuine and be like, ‘Hey, if you did this but if you took a second longer after you did this, think about how the crowd would react.”

“And you’re like, ‘Oh!’ Genuine critiques to the point where you’re like, ‘Oh, you’re actually watching our matches at 10 o’clock at night when everyone else has left the building. Thank you.’ He’s great.” 

Bennett still appreciates Roman Reigns as a heel and he believes that he has learned some lessons about competing in wrestling from WWE. He talked about Reigns’ performance on the SmackDown brand and how he impressive he was.
