“He’s (Reigns) very passionate about what we do, so am I, and there’s different levels of passion in different people but when you work with someone as passionate as you are to create good moments and memorable moments and stories and all that stuff it, naturally, brings your level up as well.” (H/T Post Wrestling)

Competing with someone like Roman Reigns is a morale booster. The Tribal Chief is a 5-time WWE Champion, former Royal Rumble winner, and has main evented 4 consecutive WrestleManias. Reigns’ passion for the business carries him above the negativity he faces from the WWE Universe.

“It’s been really enjoyable–and it’s not just him, (Paul) Heyman and Jey Uso have been so great in their roles as well, it’s just really cool.

“It’s very refreshing for me, to be involved with all those guys in the way we’re doing it now. I hope it continues, for sure.” 

It’s not just Roman Reigns, but Jey Uso and Paul Heyman too, who Kevin Owens praised. Uso and Heyman play excellent supporting roles to Reigns’ lead. The alliance with Paul has worked wonders for the champion, and having Jey Uso by his side is always a welcome sight.

The rivalry began after Jey Uso viciously attacked KO after a match with a steel chair. This attack turned into a brawl as KO got the upper hand and destroyed Uso.

While doing so, Owens called out the Tribal Chief. Delivering his usual verbal jabs, he instructed Roman to keep his family mess away from the ring.

This sparked the need for Reigns to make an example out of KO. KO laid out the challenge which Uso enthusiastically accepted. Reigns accepted too, but not before berating his cousin.

The feud turned personal when Reigns sent a message to KO’s family, promising to take the food off their table if KO does not shut up.
